Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a specialized field of medicine that focuses on conception, prenatal care, and labor and delivery. An OB/GYN has extensive training and experience in all aspects of your reproductive system and overall health. Obstetricians are also responsible for:

  • Performing surgery on your reproductive organs
  • Performing both vaginal and cesarean (C-section) deliveries
  • Comprehensive postnatal care

Your dedicated obstetrician is your go-to physician for all of your family-planning needs, whether you want to become pregnant in the future, or recently found out that you’re pregnant.

When should I see an obstetrician?

Ideally, you should plan on scheduling an examination at the office of Lorena Tinoco, MD, before you get pregnant. Dr. Tinoco can run some labs and perform preventive screenings, like an ultrasound, to determine if you’re healthy enough to conceive and get you started on any essential treatment if needed.

You should also schedule an obstetrics evaluation if you’ve been trying to get pregnant for one year without success, or if you have difficulty staying pregnant. Or if you’re over age 35, Dr. Tinoco wants you to come in after six months of trying to get pregnant without success.

If you took a home pregnancy test and had a positive result, congratulations! Dr. Tinoco typically wants to see you around the eight-week mark after conception. Usually, you have monthly prenatal visits throughout your second trimester, then every other week or weekly visits as you progress through your third trimester.
