Obstetrics Q & A

What is an obstetrician?

An obstetrician is a medical doctor who specializes in pregnancy, labor, and birth. After medical school, an obstetrician completes four years of residency training, which includes:

  • Obstetrics
  • Gynecology
  • Gynecologic oncology
  • Ultrasonography

In less technical terms, an obstetrician is your pregnancy guide. In just nine short months, your body conceives, grows, and nurtures a new life until the time comes for that new life to enter the world.

While a woman’s body is designed for reproduction, great medical care throughout your pregnancy and delivery affords you peace of mind, knowing that everything will go as smoothly as possible.

To that end, one of the primary jobs of an obstetrician is to ensure that milestones are met and, if there’s a problem, to intervene when necessary. This vigilant preventive care is crucial in detecting issues that may affect you or your baby and remedying them before they pose a more serious health risk.

What areas does obstetrics cover?

While the field of obstetrics is generally associated with pregnancy, labor, and delivery, the purview of the obstetrician extends far beyond the actual pregnancy and includes:

  • Family planning
  • Fertility
  • Management of pre-existing conditions
  • High-risk pregnancies

The obstetricians at Martin, Lee & Page OBGYN play a key role before, during, and after your pregnancy, ensuring the best chances for success.
