Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a branch of medicine that focuses on the health and well-being of a pregnant woman and her unborn child.

The experienced obstetricians at Panhandle Obstetrics and Gynecology provide various services that support a mother’s health and the growth and development of their baby through pregnancy and during labor and delivery.

What obstetrics services are available?

Panhandle Obstetrics and Gynecology provides comprehensive care for expectant mothers and their babies, including:

  • Prenatal visits
  • Ultrasounds
  • Genetic screening
  • Labor and delivery plans
  • Vaginal birth delivery
  • Cesarean section (C-section) delivery

The providers can accommodate mothers with healthy and high-risk pregnancies. A high-risk pregnancy is any pregnancy where underlying issues can affect the welfare of the expectant mother or unborn child. These issues can include high blood pressure and diabetes, carrying multiples, or a history of pregnancy complications.

Panhandle Obstetrics and Gynecology also offer surgery to treat miscarriages, ectopic pregnancies, and other pregnancy complications. 

What can I expect during my obstetrics appointment?

At your initial obstetrics appointment, Panhandle Obstetrics and Gynecology providers can confirm your pregnancy and estimate your due date. They also review your medical history, your previous history of pregnancies, and your current health.

The providers evaluate the health of your pregnancy with both a physical and pelvic exam. They also request blood work to check your blood sugar levels and ensure you’re healthy.

You will need to schedule prenatal visits throughout your pregnancy. During these routine checkups, the providers may request tests to monitor your health and the growth and development of your baby. Tests can include:

  • Blood glucose tests
  • Urine tests
  • Ultrasound imaging
  • Genetic screenings

The providers also evaluate your weight gain and take measurements of your baby to assess their growth and development.

As you get closer to your due date, the providers work with you on a labor and delivery plan. When you’re ready to give birth, they support your labor process and assist with the delivery of your baby. The physicians also evaluate your health post-delivery and can provide resources that help you care for your baby and your own physical and mental health.
