Obstetrics Q & A

What is an obstetrician?

The practice of obstetrics focuses on the health and wellness of your body during pregnancy. Obstetricians are doctors who oversee prenatal care, fetal health, and delivery of babies. Ultrasounds, health screenings, and monitoring of your health and your baby’s health fall under your obstetrician’s care.

You benefit from receiving expert obstetrics care from a board-certified OB/GYN. Dr. Killingsworth, Dr. Middleton and Dr. Troxler provide attentive, quality care throughout pregnancy, through delivery, and beyond.

What is involved in prenatal care?

Prenatal care is appropriate if you’re thinking about getting pregnant, think you might be pregnant, or you know you’re pregnant. Pregnancy care offers the essential support you need to keep you and your baby healthy during the nine months of pregnancy.

You receive the screenings, support, and care you need to help you transition to becoming a mother. Each pregnancy is unique, and prenatal visits reflect this.

At Inspire Ob/Gyn, LLC, the prenatal care generally involves:

  • Regular checkups to review the health of both you and your baby
  • Nutritional support, including recommendations about prenatal vitamins
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Tests to evaluate your baby’s growth
  • Evaluations of health conditions, such as high blood pressure or infections
  • Determination if the pregnancy is high risk and requires appropriate management

Your first prenatal visit includes a review of your health history. The staff gathers vital readings, like your current weight, blood pressure, and blood oxygen level. This information is used as a baseline to compare your readings at future prenatal appointments. You may also undergo blood screenings and urine tests.

At subsequent appointments, your physician addresses any lingering questions you may have. Dr. Killingsworth and Dr. Middleton check will also check the baby’s heart rate, measure your abdomen, and may do ultrasound screenings.

How often will I come in for prenatal visits?

Prenatal visits are less frequent early in your pregnancy and become more regular as your pregnancy progresses. Visits occur about once per month for the first 28 weeks. Then you come in twice a month from weeks 28-36. After week 36, you’ll come in one time per week.

How does an obstetrician deal with high-risk pregnancies?

Dr. Killingsworth and Dr. Middleton are experienced in dealing with high-risk pregnancies. A high-risk pregnancy may involve:

  • Multiple fetuses
  • Maternal age of 35 or older
  • Diabetes or gestational diabetes
  • Elevated blood pressure

A pre-existing condition in the mother, such as lupus, also makes a high pregnancy risk. This type of pregnancy requires more frequent monitoring and sometimes additional tests to check the health of mother and baby.
