Despite Your Trust, Your Ob-gyn Can Give Deficient Prenatal Care
An obstetrician/gynecologist (ob-gyn) is trained specifically in the medical care and treatment of women and female reproductive organs. Although many do serve as primary care physicians, most are specialists who provide prenatal consultations during pregnancy. For a healthy pregnancy and delivery, women must be able to trust in the advice and medical care relating to a broad range of health issues and conditions, including:
- Health during pregnancy and delivery
- Urinary tract disorders
- Medical exams, D&C exams
- Timely diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer
- Endocrinology issues
- Preventive health
Errors or misjudgment on the part of ob-gyns can lead to serious health problems for women and their babies. During your medical consultations, your ob-gyn specialist must take into account medical issues such as pregnancy risks, including previous complications and previous cesarean births. Ignoring critical information can lead to errors in prescribed treatment and medication.
