Obstetrics Q & A
What is obstetrics?
Obstetrics is a branch of medicine in which your OBGYN specialist cares for you and your unborn baby. Routine obstetrics care gives you and your new addition the best chance of staying healthy. Your provider can detect possible women’s health problems before they become serious.
What are obstetrics consultations?
During an obstetric consultation, you meet with OBGYN providers at Frisco Obstetrics and Gynecology, PA, to discuss the details of your pregnancy. You develop a trusting relationship with your doctor and discuss possible health issues.
Routine meetings with your specialist allow for professional monitoring of you and your baby’s health.
What should I expect during initial obstetrics visits?
Your provider assesses your weight, pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs during your initial obstetrics consultation. They review your medical history and complete a comprehensive physical examination, including a pelvic exam.
Your OBGYN specialist might recommend you undergo specific diagnostic testing procedures, such as:
- Blood tests
- Urine tests
- Fetal heart monitoring
You have a chance to ask questions about your pregnancy, your baby’s health, and lifestyle habits that reduce your risk of developing pregnancy complications.
What should I expect during subsequent appointments?
During subsequent obstetrics visits, the Frisco Obstetrics and Gynecology, PA team weighs you and checks your vital signs. They complete a physical exam and ask questions about how your pregnancy is going.
Your provider may ask you to leave a urine sample. They listen to your baby’s heartbeat and might recommend you undergo an ultrasound to detect or rule out problems with you or your baby’s health.
As you get closer to your delivery due date, your doctor discusses your birth plan, which might include a vaginal birth or cesarean section (C-section).
How can I reduce my risk of pregnancy problems?
There are several steps you can take to boost your chance of a healthy pregnancy and baby. These may include:
- Eating a healthy diet
- Staying active
- Taking prenatal vitamins
- Avoiding exposure to chemicals
- Properly managing health conditions
- Getting plenty of sleep
Call Frisco Obstetrics and Gynecology, PA, if you experience new or unusual symptoms during your pregnancy. Examples include pelvic pain, bleeding, or reduced fetal movement.
How often should I schedule obstetrics visits?
Follow your provider’s instructions regarding how often to schedule obstetrics appointments during your pregnancy. Generally speaking, schedule an initial obstetrics consultation about eight weeks after your last menstrual period.
Subsequent appointments initially occur monthly, and then more often as your pregnancy progresses.
