Obstetrics Q&A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is an area of medicine that cares for women during pregnancy. Obstetricians go through years of training so they can provide the monitoring and treatment women need during their nine months of pregnancy. 

They also have advanced training so they can handle high-risk pregnancies that may require additional testing, referrals to specialists, and more frequent monitoring and care. 

Ganesh OBGYN has been serving the women of South Florida since 1975. The health experts at the OBGYN practice have delivered generations of families.

When do I need obstetrics?

Your provider at Ganesh OBGYN can talk to you about when you need obstetrics care. In general, you may benefit from obstetrics care for preconception counseling, prenatal care, and postpartum care.

Preconception counseling

If you’re planning on getting pregnant or thinking you might want to start trying to get pregnant over the next few months, you should visit Ganesh OBGYN for preconception counseling. 

During this appointment, your provider conducts a physical and pelvic exam, runs lab work, and asks about your lifestyle habits. 

They use the information gathered to help you design a plan that ensures your pregnancy gets off to a healthy start. 

Prenatal care

Once you’re pregnant, you need obstetrics for prenatal care. Early and regular prenatal care allows your provider to closely monitor you and your baby’s health during your pregnancy so they can address issues before they turn into problems.

Your prenatal care also gives you and your provider at Ganesh OBGYN an opportunity to get to know each other so you can feel comfortable sharing your concerns and wishes, including your preferred birth plan.

Postpartum care

After the delivery of your baby, you need postpartum care. During this part of your pregnancy, your obstetrician has you come into the office to assess your physical and emotional well-being, asking questions to understand how you're adapting to life with a new baby.

Postpartum care also allows your provider to monitor for signs of postpartum depression, a serious mood disorder that affects women after they give birth, making it hard for them to care for themselves and their babies.
