What is Obstetrics?

The medical practice concentrated on pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period.

From the moment I first assisted with the delivery of a baby in my third year of medical school to date I can safely state that not one birth has gone by that I have not marveled at the energy in the air at the very moment a child is born. Walking a path with those expecting is my privilege. Building strong trustworthy relationships, sharing decision making, and ultimately sending home a healthy mom, a healthy baby and a happy father!

Obstetricians provide specialised medical care during pregnancy and birth. You might choose to have a private obstetrician, who you’ll see throughout your pregnancy.

If you are planning to give birth in a public hospital or in a birth centre, you might see an obstetrician only if there is a medical need or complication.

Congratulations, and welcome to your pregnancy!

From what to expect each week to how to prepare for labor and beyond, here’s the information you might find helpful.
