What kind of conditions does an obstetrician treat?

An obstetrician handles a myriad of pregnancy-related events and symptoms:

  • prenatal planning
  • ultrasounds
  • all examinations during the pregnancy
  • problems relating to pregnancy
  • childbirth
  • postpartum issues

What should I expect from my obstetrician during pregnancy?

Once you choose your obstetrician, whether it be based on research, referral or recommendation, your doctor will schedule an appointment for your first ultrasound. From there, they will get an extensive family and medical history to determine if you are at risk for a high-risk pregnancy or any related issues. Next, your doctor will devise a customized treatment plan, including prenatal care, diet, exercise and ultrasound appointments. You will also receive a pregnancy plan that will cover your preferences for your delivery.

What can I expect after childbirth?

Postpartum care is extremely important. Many patients do not attend their postpartum check up, which is a disservice to themselves. It is important to be well-informed and knowledgeable about the signs of postpartum depression and treatment options. Even if you aren’t experiencing any postpartum symptoms, it is important to attend your follow ups to check your post-delivery health and well-being.
