Pregnancy Q & A

What does obstetrics care include?

Obstetrics care includes comprehensive medical care to help you have a successful pregnancy. This includes:

Pre-pregnancy care

Your obstetrics care at Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology can start before you’re pregnant. The team helps you plan the right time to conceive, when to remove your intrauterine device (IUD) or discontinue other birth control, and provides personalized counseling on preparing for pregnancy. 

The team also provides infertility evaluations and treatments like intrauterine insemination (IUI) for women who struggle to conceive a baby. 

Pregnancy care

Your obstetrics care continues throughout pregnancy. You’ll typically have ultrasounds, blood tests, urine tests, and other types of testing to check on your and your baby’s health and development at various points throughout your pregnancy. 

Prenatal visits usually follow the following schedule:

  • First Visit - 28 weeks: Visits usually every 4 weeks
  • 32 weeks - 36 weeks: Visits usually every 2 weeks
  • 36 weeks and beyond: Weekly visits until you deliver
  • Postpartum: 6 weeks after delivery


During your pregnancy, you’ll work with the Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology team to plan your delivery. They can help you determine whether vaginal, Caesarean section, or vaginal birth after Caesarean (VBAC) birth is the safest and best way to deliver your baby. 

Postpartum Care

The physicians at Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology preform a comprehensive physical exam and postpartum depression screen. They can provide breastfeeding support, birth control counseling, and advice on healthy lifestyle after delivery.

What is a high-risk pregnancy?

The obstetric team at Georgia Obstetrics and Gynecology has the necessary training and education to evaluate and manage high-risk pregnancies of all kinds. 

Your pregnancy may be high risk if you:

  • Smoke, take illicit drugs, or drink alcohol during pregnancy
  • Are age 35 or older
  • Were over— or underweight when you became pregnant
  • Had pregnancy complications in the past
  • Have chronic health issues like diabetes or cardiovascular disease
  • Excessive nausea and vomiting (Hyperemesis Gravidarum)
  • Prior Cesarean section
  • Prior early delivery
  • High blood pressure during pregnancy
  • Gestational Diabetes
  • Twins/multiple gestation
  • History of miscarriage or stillbirth
  • Bleeding disorders
  • Kidney Disease
  • Thyroid Disorder

If you have a family history of congenital conditions, you might choose genetic testing to find out if your baby has one or is at risk.
