Katy health questions: What is obstetrics?

What is Obstetrics in Katy area

Obstetrics is the field of medicine focusing on prenatal care and childbirth. This specialty is often practiced in conjunction with genecology, which focuses on women’s health issues throughout life. A physician such as Dr. Jenkins who is certified in both specialties is known as an OB/GYN.

When to see an obstetrician

If you are pregnant, you are trying to become pregnant, or suspect you may be pregnant, you should see an obstetrician. Proper prenatal care is vital for the health of both mother and child, and it is never too soon to begin. Pregnant women who do not receive regular prenatal care are three times more likely to have low birth-weight babies, and five times more likely to lose their babies.

Prenatal care involves more than a single appointment. It is important for your obstetrician to monitor your health as well as the development of the fetus throughout pregnancy. If any problems develop, they can be treated or managed early, minimizing the risks, and maximizing the chances of having a healthy baby.

Healthy mom, healthy baby

Treating pregnancy complications early is important. However, avoiding them is even better. Dr. Jenkins will help you develop healthy habits and take appropriate steps to avoid trouble. He will examine your medical history as well as the current state of your health before making recommendations. Every woman is unique, and every pregnancy is different. Exercise requirements, dietary supplements, medications, and nutritional needs can vary significantly.

It is important to follow your doctor’s advice. However, it is not possible to include every imaginable situation and potential hazard during your consultation. Never assume that something is safe just because you haven’t been told otherwise. Be sure to check with Dr. Jenkins before taking any new medication or supplement, making drastic changes to your diet or exercise level, traveling long distances, or anything else that may pose a risk. The old expression “better safe than sorry” is never truer than when dealing with health issue, especially during pregnancy. If you have any concerns or questions, ask; your health, and your child’s health could depend on it.

Pregnancy can be an exciting, amazing, and infinitely stressful experience. You want the best for your child and it can be confusing to try to figure out just what that is at this crucial stage. Dr. Jenkins will be there for you every step of the way with state-of-the-art medicine, sound advice, support, encouragement, and compassion. Find out for yourself why mothers throughout the Katy area turn to Dr. Jenkins. Call 855 346 8610 and schedule your appointment today.
