Obstetrics and Gynecology Q & A

What is obstetrics and gynecology?

Obstetrics and gynecology is the area of medicine that deals with women’s health and well-being throughout her life. Gynecology covers all women’s health issues apart from pregnancy and childbirth, for example:

  • Family planning
  • Menstrual disorders
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Pap smears
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine fibroids
  • Menopause
  • Sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)

Obstetrics focuses on pregnancy and childbirth, including:

  • Preconception health
  • Genetic counseling
  • Fetal screening and interventions
  • Maternal health conditions like gestational diabetes
  • Labor and delivery
  • Postnatal care

High Risk Pregnancy Doctors specializes in maternal-fetal medicine.

What is maternal-fetal medicine?

Maternal-fetal medicine provides specialized care for you and your unborn baby during a high-risk pregnancy. Your OB/GYN or primary care provider can refer you to a maternal-fetal medicine specialist, but you don’t have to have an OB/GYN to take advantage of the expertise at High Risk Pregnancy Doctors.

The practice is a one-stop-shop for all your pregnancy needs. Your specialist provides a hands-on approach, whether you have a complicated pregnancy that involves a transfer of care from another provider, or consists of a joint effort between them and your existing provider.

High Risk Pregnancy Doctors also provides complete care for women whose pregnancies aren’t high risk, including delivery and postpartum care. The services include state-of-the-art ultrasound technology such as the first-trimester fetal echo, which can detect congenital heart defects in babies at the very earliest stages.

With Saturday appointments available at High Risk Pregnancy Doctors, neither you nor your partner needs to take time off work to attend your ultrasound appointment, either.

When would I need a maternal-fetal obstetrics and gynecology specialist?

A maternal-fetal medicine specialist can help if you’re considering having a baby or if you’re already pregnant and know you have existing risk factors. They can provide specialized, high-yield ultrasounds to look for any anomalies and conduct early detection of anomalies with screening testing. Some of the most common conditions women can have that make a pregnancy high risk include:

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Preeclampsia (toxemia)
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Infectious diseases

If you’ve had problems during previous pregnancies, that can also make your current pregnancy high risk, for example, a history of preterm labor, recurrent miscarriages, or previous stillbirth. Having a multiple birth, where you’re expecting twins or triplets, for instance, is also higher risk.
