How Can An Obstetrician Help?

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.
