Obstetrics and Gynecology

Obstetrics and Gynecology

An obstetrician is a doctor who specializes in pregnancy, childbirth, and a woman’s reproductive system.

Obstetrics involves care during pregnancy, childbirth, and the postpartum period. Obstetricians provide pregnancy care for both the mother and the foetus—the unborn child.  They help deliver babies at childbirth & also perform Surgeries like Caesarean sections to deliver the unborn child if required.

Gynaecology deals with functions and diseases specific to women and girls. They focus on the health of the uterus, the ovaries, the fallopian tubes, and other organs of the female reproductive system. They also deal with performing surgeries to remove tumours in uterus and ovaries in case of cancers.
