Are you pregnant or thinking of having a baby and want to consult a specialist for routine prenatal care? Did you develop any complications during your pregnancy that might affect you or your baby? Do you need specialist advice on diet, exercise, or medications during pregnancy?
At our Virtual Health Clinic, you can speak to a doctor online and get a referral to an Obstetrician who will take care of you and your baby before and during your pregnancy, during birth, and after giving birth.
Obstetrics deals with the wellbeing of a mother and her baby during pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum period. Obstetrics also aims to provide care for women with certain medical conditions such as hypertension, heart disease, lupus, diabetes, history of miscarriages, congenital heart disease, etc., during pregnancy to prevent maternal complications and ensure a healthy outcome. Gynecology and obstetrics are twin subjects since both deal with the female reproductive system.
A person that specializes in both of these fields is referred as ‘’OB-GYN’’, whereas a person who specializes only in the field of obstetrics is referred as an ‘obstetrician’. An obstetrician provides prenatal care, support during pregnancy and labor, support after childbirth, and is trained to deal with a wide range of pregnancy and childbirth complications such as fetal distress, uterine rupture, ectopic pregnancy, uterine rupture, prolapsed cord, etc. Pregnant women are advised to see an obstetrician once every month during their pregnancy. Obstetricians are also trained to perform a wide range of procedures including circumcision, cervical cerclage, cesarean delivery, vaginal delivery, and episiotomy.
An obstetrician is a medical doctor who specializes in managing pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum care. Their primary focus is on the health and well-being of pregnant women and their unborn babies. A gynecologist on the other hand, is a medical doctor who specializes in women's reproductive health, with a focus on the female reproductive system, sexual health, and general well-being.
