Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics at Reno Tahoe Women’s Health is a medical treatment you receive when you’re trying to become pregnant, are pregnant, and in labor and delivery. Your obstetrician cares for you after you have the baby, too.

The Reno Tahoe Women’s Health team provides exceptional, personalized women’s health care in a warm, welcoming environment. They empower women to achieve healthier lives.

Why is obstetrics care important?

Obstetrics care increases your chance of safely completing a successful pregnancy and delivery. The Reno Tahoe Women’s Health team guides new mothers throughout their pregnancy using the best care practices available. Your risk of pregnancy complications decreases with routine, quality obstetrics care.

Which obstetrics services are available?

Reno Tahoe Women’s Health providers support you in all your family-planning decisions and help you make safe choices. Obstetrics services the OB/GYN team offers include:

Preconception counseling

During preconception counseling, your women’s health provider offers advice about conceiving safely and effectively. They help you determine when you’re most fertile and offer suggestions about lifestyle changes that optimize a healthy pregnancy.

Diabetes in pregnancy

The Reno Tahoe Women’s Health team helps you manage diabetes in pregnancy. They monitor your blood sugar and let you know how to keep yourself and your baby healthy. 

High blood pressure in pregnancy

High blood pressure in pregnancy can be dangerous, which is why your OB/GYN physician helps you manage blood pressure and other chronic diseases to prevent pregnancy complications.

High-risk pregnancy

If you’re pregnant over 40, pregnant with twins, or are a teenage mom-to-be, you may be classified as high risk, but can still achieve a healthy pregnancy. Your obstetrician closely monitors you throughout pregnancy to optimize you and your unborn baby’s health.


The Reno Tahoe Women’s Health team offers on-site ultrasound for added patient convenience, for times when you require routine monitoring or you’d like to know the gender of your baby.

Delivery services

When you’re ready to deliver your baby, the team helps you safely complete a vaginal birth, cesarean birth, or vaginal birth after cesarean section (VBAC). Hospitals they deliver at include Renown Health and St. Mary’s Regional Medical Center.
