Obstetrics Q & A

Why is prenatal care so important?

Prenatal care is an essential part of a healthy pregnancy and delivery. During pregnancy, you need specific screenings, support, and care to ensure the health of your baby and your body. 

If you have a complication during your pregnancy, your provider at the Center for Women’s Health can identify it early and address it before it leads to a more serious issue.

What happens during prenatal visits?

Your first prenatal visit is usually the most extensive. At this appointment, the staff establishes a personal relationship with you and gathers basic information about your health history, current weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs. 

Your provider performs a baseline ultrasound to establish the pregnancy. Additionally, you may also have a pelvic exam and undergo a blood screening and urine tests. 

At future appointments, your doctor assesses your baby’s development by measuring your belly and checking the baby’s heart tones. Normal vs. abnormal changes and symptoms throughout pregnancy are addressed, as well as what to expect and how to prepare for the time of delivery. 

What are obstetrics screenings?

Advanced medical screenings provide valuable information about your baby’s health. The recommended tests vary according to your age, health history, ethnicity, and any symptoms you report or health conditions you may have. They may include:

  • Fetal growth sonograms
  • Group B strep culture
  • Diabetes screening
  • Genetic testing and carrier screening tests
  • Blood type (ABO/Rh) screening 
  • STDs screening

Every pregnancy is unique, and your physician at the Center for Women’s Health provides thorough information about each screening during your visits.

What postnatal care does obstetrics cover?

Once your baby is born, it’s still important to have access to quality gynecological care. In the immediate postpartum period, your doctor ensures you are healing well and not experiencing any post-delivery complications such as infections of vaginal tears, surgical incisions, uterus or breasts. 

They also check in with you to make sure that you feel confident about caring for your infant and with breastfeeding, if you choose. The staff evaluates your mental health to make sure you are not suffering from postpartum depression or other issues.

Obstetrics care transitions into gynecological care that includes annual well-woman exams, birth control support, and the evaluation of any abnormal gynecological symptoms that you may have.
