What Is Obstetrics?
Obstetrics is the area of medicine focused on childbirth and the care of women’s health as they carry a child and give birth. Obstetricians are resources for assistance during the pregnancy, childbirth, and postpartum stages. They can also help address common pregnancy concerns or complications such as:
- Back pain
- Leg pain
- Morning sickness
Obstetrics often includes utilizing and tracking measurements, tests, and ultrasounds to monitor all aspects of the pregnancy to offer the proper care recommendations for areas such as diet, exercise, and medications as they pertain to overall health.
What Is High-Risk Obstetrics?
Many factors affect a pregnancy, and, unfortunately, many women encounter complications during their pregnancies. If a woman is experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, she will likely need additional and specialized monitoring or testing compared to a traditional pregnancy.
High-risk obstetrics enables women who are experiencing high-risk pregnancy to have healthy pregnancies with the proper obstetrics care and a healthy lifestyle. Factors that can make a pregnancy high risk include:
- Being over the age of 35
- Carrying more than one child
- Chronic health conditions
- Developmental complications
- Engaging in unhealthy lifestyle habits
- History of miscarriage
- Preterm labor
Any number of these concerns can lead to a variety of health complications to watch for, such as:
- Blurred or any change in vision
- Burning sensation or pain when urinating
- Decreased fetal activity
- Frequent or regular contractions
- Pain or cramping in the lower abdomen
- Severe headaches
- Vaginal bleeding
- Watery vaginal discharge
High-risk obstetrics is specialized care to help address these issues. If you feel you may or are currently experiencing a high-risk pregnancy, seeking the help of an obstetrician sooner rather than later can help guide you along the way.
Why Does Obstetrics Matter?
Obstetrics is the key to ensuring your pregnancy is as safe and healthy as possible. An obstetrician can help support you and work with your general care practitioner to provide the best care possible. Pregnancy can bring on a variety of complications for the mother or child, and receiving the proper care can help make all the difference.
