Obstetrics and Gynecology

Pregnancy is a beautiful yet stressful time. Especially for first time parents, the experience is new and the abundance of conflicting information from different sources is something that adds to the confusion. In such conditions it is highly important to take advice from an experienced obstetrician to ensure the well being of the mother and child.

Obstetrics does not just revolve around child birth but it is the complete care of the mother and the child from the beginning of pregnancy al the way through childbirth, pueperium (Postpartum period) and post-natal care.
