What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is an area of medical practice focused on addressing a woman’s needs throughout her pregnancy. It also involves providing the screenings and care needed to support a developing fetus. 

All gynecologists undergo training in obstetrics care, but not all choose to include these services once they enter their profession. At WHASN West Valley, caring and compassionate obstetrics services are a significant part of the practice. This means you can continue working with the specialist you already know and trust if you decide to have a baby.   

What kinds of obstetrics services are available?

All women need high-quality obstetrics care, also called prenatal care. Some of the routine obstetrics services available include:

  • Ultrasound imaging
  • Maternal blood testing
  • Health screenings for mother and baby
  • Assessment for developmental problems
  • Assessment for congenital issues
  • Tracking your baby’s growth and development
  • Help with morning sickness
  • Labor and delivery services
  • Postpartum care

Some pregnancies are more challenging than others. Additional services are available if you or your baby need more in-depth support. Managing high-risk pregnancies is an area of specialty at the practice.

WHASN West Valley also offers in-house phlebotomy. Having your blood testing done at your obstetrician’s office helps speed up results and ease the path toward treatment.  

When should I seek out obstetrics services?

Ideally, you should begin working with your obstetrician as soon as you start thinking about getting pregnant. Your specialist works with you to ensure your body is prepared to withstand the rigors of pregnancy and delivery. If you encounter fertility challenges, your specialist guides you through the diagnostic and treatment process.  

Most women begin working with an obstetrician shortly after learning they’re expecting. The earlier you start, the more you and your baby can benefit from the team's exceptional care at WHASN West Valley. 

Whether this is your first baby or your fourth, each pregnancy is unique. Working with a highly skilled obstetrician is the best way to get the care you and your baby need as you move closer to your due date. 

If you’re ready to explore these services in greater detail, booking a visit is as simple as a quick visit to the online scheduling page. You’re also welcome to call the office to check appointment availability.
