About Our Maternity Program

Maternal Diabetes and Wellness Center

Our Maternal Diabetes and Wellness Center is a program for women diagnosed with diabetes during pregnancy. The program is directed by Tamera Hatfield, MD, a board-certified perinatologist. Our nurse educators and registered dietitian, under the guidance of our Nurse Practitioner Angelica Perez, will instruct you about managing diabetes both during and after your pregnancy.

During your one-on-one sessions, you will learn how to monitor your blood sugar and develop a plan to balance food and activity levels. You are welcome to bring your significant other or a family member with you. Follow-up appointments are available as needed to monitor and manage your diabetes during pregnancy. Our goal is to ensure you have the healthiest pregnancy possible, improved outcomes, and develop healthy habits for you and your family.

Our Maternal Diabetes and Wellness Center is conveniently located in the St. Joseph Hospital Outpatient Pavilion at 1140 W. La Veta Ave, Suite 480 in Orange. If you have questions regarding our program, please call us at 714-744-8661 and a member of our staff will be glad to assist you.
