What is obstetrics?

ObstetricsObstetrics is the branch of medicine concerned with pregnancy, the delivery of babies and the welfare of the mother. Consultant obstetricians work closely with midwives in all aspects of routine and complex ante-natal care, care of the mother and baby during delivery, and post natal support.

Reasons to see a consultant obstetrician

An obstetrician is a doctor who specialises in managing pregnancy, labour and postnatal care. Although there are other trained health professionals such as doctors, gynaecologists and midwives, people often choose to see an obstetrician due to their specialist knowledge and experience in all aspects of pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal care. There are a range of other reasons why you would seek an obstetrician, such as:

  • You have a high risk pregnancy
  • You’ve had complications during previous pregnancies
  • You’re 35 or above
  • You’ve developed complications during your pregnancy
