Obstetrics Q&A

What are obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a specialized area of medicine focused on the needs of women before, during, and after pregnancy. The experienced team at Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC, provides exceptional women’s health care throughout each stage of their life, including pregnancy. 

At Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC, the board-certified obstetricians partner with you during your pregnancy, providing the exceptional care and attention you need every step of the way. 

Your obstetrics care includes pre-pregnancy visits, ongoing prenatal care, and postpartum care, as well as labor and delivery.

The OB/GYN team delivers babies at the Maternity & Newborn Care Center at Hunterdon Medical Center in Flemington, New Jersey.  

When should I start obstetric care?

The team at Advanced Obstetrics & Gynecology, LLC, determines when you should start obstetric care based on your gynecological and pregnancy history. However, in most cases, the first prenatal appointment is scheduled 3-4 weeks after your positive pregnancy test. 

What can I expect during my first prenatal visit?

Your first prenatal visit is one of the most thorough visits. Before meeting with your obstetrician, you first undergo an in-office fetal ultrasound at the state-of-the-art ultrasound center. For your convenience, each office has advanced ultrasound technology.

The fetal ultrasound confirms pregnancy and assists your obstetrician in determining your due date. 

After your ultrasound, you meet with your obstetrician, who asks detailed questions about your medical, gynecological, and surgical history, as well as your family history. Your obstetrician also asks questions about your partner’s personal medical and family history. 

Then, your obstetrician performs a physical and pelvic exam and may run diagnostic tests to assess health and screen for diseases, such as urinalysis, blood work, and Pap smear. 

For healthy, low-risk pregnancies, you can expect regular prenatal care visits based on how far along you are during your pregnancy:

  • Weeks 4-28: monthly visits
  • Weeks 29-35: bimonthly visits
  • Weeks 36 to birth: weekly visits

If your pregnancy is high risk (carrying twins or you have a chronic health condition), your prenatal visits may be more frequent. 

What are common obstetrics tests?

You may undergo some obstetric tests throughout your pregnancy. Some tests are standard. However, your OB/GYN may recommend special tests because of family history or maternal age. Some of the standard obstetric tests include:

  • Genetic testing and counseling
  • Nuchal translucency test 
  • Blood glucose challenge
  • Blood test for anemia
  • Amniocentesis

The obstetric team also offers prenatal genetic screening.
