Obstetrics Q & A
What is obstetrics?
Obstetrics focuses on the health and well-being of women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the first couple of months after delivery of the baby.
Obstetricians undergo additional training so that they can manage all problems that can arise during or after pregnancy. These problems include abnormal and high-risk pregnancies, vaginal delivery and cesarean section (C-section), and postpartum depression.
The Collaborative Women’s Care providers are experienced obstetricians, providing patient-centered care and putting you and your baby’s needs above all else.
What services are provided by obstetrics?
Collaborative Women’s Care provides complete obstetrics care. The services they offer during pregnancy include:
- Routine prenatal care
- Noninvasive pregnancy testing (NIPT, for early gender screening)
- Genetic screening
- 3D/4D ultrasound imaging
- Nonstress testing and fetal surveillance
- In-office ultrasound screening
The women’s health experts also provide immunizations for pregnancy, including the flu and tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis (Tdap) vaccines.
What are my delivery choices with obstetrics care?
Collaborative Women’s Care provides many delivery choices to bring your baby safely into the world. These include:
Collaborative Women’s Care works to deliver every baby vaginally. Vaginal deliveries are reasonably straightforward but sometimes need assistance like an episiotomy (an incision of the skin from the vagina to the anus) or a forceps delivery (a device to pull the baby from the vaginal canal).
If you have placenta previa (the placenta blocks part or all of the cervix) or some other condition that puts your health at risk during a vaginal delivery, you’ll need a C-section. This is a surgical procedure. Your provider cuts through your abdomen and uterus to deliver your baby.
A C-section can be planned or an emergency surgery. Collaborative Women’s Care also does repeat C-sections for women with prior C-sections.
Trial of labor after cesarean (TOLAC)
For women who had C-sections but want to try a vaginal delivery, Collaborative Women’s Care offers TOLAC. They closely monitor you and your baby during labor, and if all goes well, you deliver vaginally.
Vaginal birth after cesarean (VBAC)
VBAC is a vaginal delivery for women with a history of C-section deliveries.
When do I need obstetrics care?
When you need obstetrics care depends on your current health needs and pregnancy history. Most women start obstetrics care about eight weeks after their last menstrual period.
However, Collaborative Women’s Care might recommend that you come in sooner if you have a high-risk pregnancy or you’re experiencing problems like bleeding or cramping.
