Obstetrics Overview

Obstetrics is the study of pregnancy, delivering babies and postpartum care. Obstetricians are specialists that provide comprehensive medical care to women throughout their entire pregnancy experience from prenatal to birthing to postpartum.

Prenatal Care

The prenatal care your obstetrician will provide includes screenings of your baby in the womb to ensure proper prenatal development and monitoring prenatal and maternal health.

The Birthing Process

After guiding you through the prenatal process, your obstetrician will also deliver your baby. Working together with a delivery team, your obstetrician will guide you through delivery and ensure your baby is healthy and cared for as they are born. Our obstetricians will work with a team of advanced practice providers and nurses to ensure a smooth birthing process no matter when you deliver.

Postpartum Care

Obstetricians are also responsible for handling new mother’s postpartum care. The purpose of postpartum care is to ensure that the mother and child both remain healthy and that the mother is supported in providing proper care to her new baby. This can include educational courses for the new mother, lifestyle counseling and regular checkups for the mother and newborn to ensure the newborn is properly developing and the mother is healing from giving birth.
