My name is Tracy Papa, and I am a board-certified Maternal-Fetal Medicine specialist (perinatologist) in private practice in Fort Worth, Texas. I received my medical degree from Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine at the University of North Texas Health Science Center, and completed my residency there. I received my Maternal-Fetal Medicine fellowship training at Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. I am married to Frank; we have four children and two dogs. In my free time, I enjoy cycling and cooking (I have to ride my bike so that I can cook!). I am also a pastry chef, and will share recipes on the site.
I blog weekly about pregnancy issues of all kinds, trying to simplifyÂ these dilemmas and focus on them fromÂ my patients' perspectives.Â I also share the stories of their challenges,Â their grace, and their courage. All patients' names have been changed, or used with permission where indicated. I invite you to talk back and share your own stories in the Comments. Welcome to my world! Read more about 760-237-0791.
