Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a specialized field of medicine concerning pregnancy and childbirth. An obstetrician is usually known as an OB/GYN, as their training covers gynecology as well as obstetrics. 

While the two specialties are closely aligned, obstetrics covers the time before, during, and after childbirth, including:

  • Pregnancy
  • Labor and childbirth
  • Post-birth care of mother and child

Dr. Zilberstein provides a full range of both obstetric and gynecology services, including in-office laboratory services and ultrasounds. 

What does an obstetrician do?

Dr. Zilberstein offers comprehensive obstetrics services, from preconception care all the way to the delivery of a healthy newborn.

Dr. Zilberstein makes it her priority to supervise all routine tests and examinations throughout your pregnancy, and monitors your and your baby’s health. She checks for any changes in your health that could cause problems, such as:

  • Infections
  • High blood pressure
  • Gestational diabetes
  • Genetic disorders

She offers advice on how to stay healthy during your pregnancy by managing exercise, diet, medications, and stress. She can also treat the side effects you may experience during your pregnancy, including morning sickness, indigestion and heartburn, and back and leg pain.

What if my pregnancy is considered high risk?

Some pregnancies are deemed high risk, meaning carrying a child to term may threaten the health of the mother or baby. An obstetrician is highly recommended for anyone experiencing a high-risk pregnancy. Risk factors include:

  • Obesity
  • Young or old age
  • Existing health conditions, such as diabetes
  • Multiple births, such as twins or triplets
  • Reoccuring pregnancy loss

Dr. Zilberstein has years of experience caring for expectant mothers, including those who fall into this category. She takes a thorough assessment of each patient and pregnancy, and provides individualized treatment plans with the highest level of quality and comfort in mind.

An obstetrician like Dr. Zilberstein is the ideal pregnancy partner even if you have no obvious risk indicators. She provides comprehensive obstetric care for both routine and high-risk patients.
