Obstetrics Q & A

What does an obstetrician do?

An obstetrician is often the very first doctor you see when you’re trying to get pregnant or when you find out that you’re pregnant. It’s their job to ensure you’re healthy enough to conceive, if you’re trying, and to help you stay healthy throughout your pregnancy. Your dedicated obstetrician can also:

  • Manage high-risk pregnancies, including diabetes and hypertension during pregnancy
  • Perform 2D and 3D ultrasonography imaging
  • Help you design your birth plan

Your obstetrician is even there for you during labor and delivery, as well as throughout your postpartum phase.

When should I see an obstetrician?

It’s always best to see Dr. Zikria before you get pregnant to run labs and go through a comprehensive well-woman exam to evaluate your health, or to treat any underlying issues that may impact fertility (like polycystic ovarian syndrome). You should also book an exam at the office of Gul A. Zikria, MD, if:

  • You’re over age 35 and want to conceive or already pregnant
  • You’ve been trying to get pregnant for over a year without success
  • You have a history of miscarriages
  • You’re overweight or obese

These factors may mean that you have some infertility concerns or high-risk pregnancy issues. This doesn’t mean you can’t get pregnant and have a healthy pregnancy. It just means Dr. Zikria might need to monitor you a little more closely to ensure you and baby are progressing healthfully.

What happens during an obstetrics appointment?

Your obstetrics appointment at the office of Gul A. Zikria, MD, is tailored to you and whether you’re trying to get pregnant or are already pregnant. Dr. Zikria may:
