Obstetrics

Pregnancy is at the same time one of the most wonderful and most difficult things a woman can experience. Thankfully, obstetricians provide special care to women before, during and immediately after pregnancy. This type of care is called obstetrics.

What is Obstetrics?

Like gynecologists, obstetricians offer support for the female reproductive system. The primary difference between obstetricians and gynecologists is that obstetrics concerns itself with how the female reproductive system handles pregnancy.

The services offered by an obstetrician or OB/GYN help women through all three trimesters of pregnancy. Some common obstetric procedures include:

A large part of what obstetricians do is imaging, such as ultrasound. These imaging procedures give pregnant women a way to view the baby before birth, as well as understanding the health of their pregnancy.

How does Obstetrics Work?

Obstetric care typically covers each stage of pregnancy. That includes the first trimester, second trimester, third trimester and often childbirth itself. Many obstetricians also provide some degree of care following childbirth.
Each stage of pregnancy typically includes these types of care:

Obstetricians are also trained to provide emergency care and care for high risk pregnancies. These problems can include damage to the reproductive system during pregnancy, fetal distress and premature childbirth.
