Obstetrics Q & A
What is obstetrics?
Obstetrics is an area of medicine that specializes in a woman’s reproductive health during and after pregnancy.
Obstetricians provide comprehensive health care for you and your baby throughout your entire pregnancy, help bring your baby into the world, and provide postpartum care to make sure you and your baby are adjusting to your new life together.
Heartfelt Obstetrics And Gynecology provides obstetrics care for pregnant women of all ages.
Who benefits from obstetrics care?
Any pregnant woman benefits from obstetrics care with the exceptional team at Heartfelt Obstetrics And Gynecology. Though there are other health professionals who provide pregnancy care, obstetricians have advanced training in childbearing, pregnancy, and delivery. They can manage any pregnancy concerns that may arise.
Though the team provides comprehensive care for all pregnancies, you may benefit from their expertise if you have a high-risk pregnancy. Women with a high-risk pregnancy may require more frequent prenatal visits, along with special testing to monitor their and their baby’s health.
Women with a high-risk pregnancy may also require a special delivery plan that may include a cesarean section. With obstetrics care at Heartfelt Obstetrics And Gynecology, you can feel confident that you and your baby are in the best hands possible for a safe delivery, no matter your or your baby’s health needs.
