Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is the practice of caring for women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postnatal period. An obstetrician can also have a specialty in maternal-fetal medicine (MFM), which is a branch of obstetrics that focuses on pregnancy complications or chronic health problems during pregnancy. In general, obstetrics care includes the medical attention or procedures you need before getting pregnant, as well as during and after pregnancy.

What are common obstetrics services?

Obstetrics can overlap with gynecology, as both practices focus on women’s reproductive health. However, obstetric services are more specialized toward pregnancy concerns. Some common obstetric services might include treating conditions like:

  • An ectopic pregnancy
  • Sepsis
  • Fetal distress
  • Preeclampsia
  • Placental abruption

Obstetrics can also address issues with a baby’s umbilical cord or other complications that might prevent a healthy birth.

At Health Solutions, expecting moms can also benefit from obstetric services, like ultrasounds, genetic testing, and umbilical cord sampling, which help to identify specific conditions or disorders in the growing fetus.

If you are considering becoming pregnant or you are pregnant, make an appointment for obstetric services at Health Solutions today. Healthy pregnancies start with excellent prenatal care, and the team at Health Solutions can address all your concerns and make sure your pregnancy goes smoothly.

What can I expect after childbirth?

Obstetric care not only ensures a healthy pregnancy, but it’s also crucial for post-delivery.

After you give birth, Health Solutions can help you navigate things like birth control options, questions you have about how the pregnancy or delivery went, and how to adjust to motherhood.

You’ll also have the chance to monitor any health issues that came up during the pregnancy, like gestational diabetes or high blood pressure.
