What is Obstetrics?

Like gynecologists, obstetricians offer support for the female reproductive system. The primary difference between obstetricians and gynecologists is that obstetrics concerns itself with how the female reproductive system handles pregnancy.

The services offered by an obstetrician or OB/GYN help women through all three trimesters of pregnancy. Some common obstetric procedures include:

  • Pap smear (Pap test)
  • STD testing
  • Genetic screening
  • Blood type testing
  • Complete blood count (CBC)
  • Urinalysis
  • Ultrasound
  • General diagnostic screening

How does Obstetrics Work?

Obstetric care typically covers each stage of pregnancy. That includes the first trimester, second trimester, third trimester, childbirth and the care following childbirth. These problems can include patients over 35 years of age, preterm labor, diabetes and hypertension during pregnancy.

Each stage of pregnancy typically includes these types of care:

  • First Trimester: Complete blood count, transferrable disease screening, pap smear, urinalysis tests, gestational age checks
  • Second Trimester: Ultrasound, gestational age checks, amniocentesis (for women over the age of 35)
  • Third Trimester: Hematocrit (blood testing, specifically for iron), glucose tests for gestational diabetes, gestational age check
  • Childbirth: Labor induction (if needed), labor assistance, pain relief, caesarean section (if needed), delivery, fetal surgery (if needed)

Obstetricians are also trained to provide emergency care and care for high risk pregnancies. These problems can include damage to the reproductive system during pregnancy, fetal distress and premature childbirth.
