Pregnancy Q & A

What does an OBGYN do for pregnant women?

Dr. Patel treats women before, during, and after pregnancy. In addition to delivering your baby when the time is right, he monitors your health and your baby's development throughout the entire pregnancy.

With a patient-centered focus and belief in encouraging natural childbirth, Dr. Patel attends personally to your questions and needs by performing his ultrasounds right in the office to monitor your baby’s growth.

Dr. Patel may offer the following services to pregnant women:

  • Advice about staying healthy with proper diet and exercise
  • Coping with pregnancy symptoms such as morning sickness, back pain, and heartburn
  • Answer any questions you have about pregnancy
  • Prepare you to experience labor and delivery

Why should I use an OBGYN instead of a midwife for pregnancy?

You may wish to have Dr. Patel work with your midwife as part of the prenatal care and baby delivery team.

While some women choose a midwife over an OBGYN due to preferences with natural birth versus a cesarean section or induced labor, these issues don't apply to Dr. Patel. He's a firm believer in waiting until both mom and baby are ready and doesn't order unnecessary inductions.

OBGYNs are trained to handle problems and complications related to pregnancy and childbirth. Dr. Patel's expertise in high-risk pregnancies makes him a valuable team member to have on board just in case something happens.

Since Dr. Patel offers a variety of gynecological services to women in all stages of life, you may prefer to have him guide you through pregnancy because you already know and trust his skill.

When do you need to see an OBGYN for pregnancy?

If you haven't already seen Dr. Patel for your women's health needs, you should schedule your first prenatal visit around eight weeks after your last menstrual period.

Even if you've been pregnant and had children before, prenatal care with Dr. Patel is critical since each pregnancy is unique. The first visit is usually the longest since this is the ideal time for you and your partner to ask any questions about having a baby.
