Obstetrician & Gynaecologist near St. Leonard

 Gynaecology and obstetrics are both studies of the female reproductive system. While in general, gynaecologists also treat women who aren’t pregnant, and obstetricians treat women who are, there is a certain amount of crossover between the two.

Obstetricians and gynaecologists both use a range of medical and surgical procedures. Gynaecologists may perform laparoscopy, cone biopsies, or hysterectomies, whereas obstetricians are more likely to carry out caesarean sections, cervical sutures, or external cephalic version (turning a breech baby inside the uterus so that it is in the correct position for delivery). Obstetricians can also offer diagnostic tests such as ultrasound and chorionic villus sampling, looking for conditions such as Down’s syndrome in the foetus. An obstetrician, such as Dr. Janet Vaughan at Obstetrics Plus, may work closely with midwives and other providers to offer her patients a full spectrum of prenatal care and education.

Sometimes, women may be referred to a gynaecologist early on in her pregnancy, and then referred to an obstetrician later. This is not the case with Obstetrics Plus, a one-stop gynaecologist near St. Leonards who works with women through every stage of their pregnancy, including performing ultrasounds, for a pregnancy care solution that’s optimally convenient for women.
