An obstetrician is a physician who practices in pregnancy, childbirth, and female reproductive system. Although other doctors can deliver babies, many females see an obstetrician because of their expertise in the area.
obstetrics specifically deals with the well-being of the pregnant woman and her child. During gestation, a number of complexities can arise such as ectopic pregnancy, problems with the placenta, or high blood pressure. Following delivery, an obstetrician is focused on the health of the mother and child, securing their transition into routine daily life without any complications.
While most gynecologists are also trained as obstetricians, the field of gynecology focuses mainly on all other aspects of a woman’s reproductive well-being from the start of puberty through menopause and beyond. On the other hand, Obstetrics specifically deals with the welfare of the pregnant woman and her baby. During pregnancy, a number of complications can arise such as ectopic pregnancy, problems with the placenta, or high blood pressure.
Women usually first see OB for routine prenatal care. The initial appointment typically occurs approximately 8 to 12 weeks after the patient's last menstrual period. The patient then sees the doctor approximately once a month throughout the duration of her pregnancy.
obstetrics procedures are:
The first obstetrics appointment, generally between eight and twelve weeks, includes a complete medical history and a thorough physical, including a breast exam, pelvic exam, urine test, pap smear, and blood test. This is to check the patient's overall health and identify any factors that can put the patient at risk for birth or fetal complications. Based on this, the doctor discusses possible genetic testing and any specific warning signs and symptoms to watch for. The mother may also have an ultrasound. Based on the time of the patient's last period, the obstetrics usually gives an estimated due date for the baby.
