Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a specialized branch of medicine that provides care to women before, during, and after pregnancy. Obstetrics usually goes hand-in-hand with gynecology, which is a branch of medicine focused on women’s health and reproductive needs. To become an OB/GYN, your obstetrician at Mott Women Healthcare first obtained a medical degree and then completed a four-year residency program focused on the medical needs of women, including how to manage pregnancy.

While many OB/GYNs provide medical care to women whether they’re pregnant or not, some specialists prefer to take care of women only during their pregnancy or focus their care specifically on obstetrics. 

Who needs to see an obstetrician?

If you’re pregnant, the OB/GYN team at Mott Women Healthcare can take care of all of your medical needs. The specialized training your obstetrician received makes them experts in the care and management of all aspects of your pregnancy, whether it’s a normal or high-risk pregnancy.

It’s especially important to seek the medical expertise of an obstetrician if you’re:

  • Over 35
  • Expecting twins, triplets or more
  • Develop a complication during your pregnancy like gestational diabetes
  • Have a chronic illness or condition like human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) 

While you can get good medical care from a family physician or midwife to help you manage your pregnancy, you get a professional with years of experience and training at Mott Women Healthcare.

What can I expect from obstetric care?

Your obstetrician at Mott Women Healthcare manages all aspects of your treatment throughout your pregnancy, closely monitoring you and your baby.

Treatment includes:

  • Prenatal checkups
  • Ultrasounds
  • Blood tests

Your obstetrician talks to you about your special health needs, including nutrition, physical activity, and use of prescription and over-the-counter medications. Your obstetrician also recommends how to manage issues that might come up throughout your pregnancy, things like morning sickness, heartburn, and hemorrhoids.

The obstetricians at Mott Women Healthcare help you through labor and delivery and how to prepare, including referrals to birthing classes. If you need a cesarean section, your obstetrician can expertly conduct the surgery and with extra care and attention.
