Obstetric services at Andrews Family Medicine

  • Cesarean section
    This procedure allows delivery of a baby through a surgical incision in the mother’s abdomen, rather than through the vagina. C-sections may be planned or occur unexpectedly due to birthing complications.

     

  • Colposcopy (to examine cervix and vagina for abnormalities)
    Colposcopy is a close diagnostic examination of the cervix, vagina and vulva to identify disease. Dr. Waddingham may recommend a colposcopy if you have an abnormal PAP test result.

     

  • Conditions of pregnancy & delivery
    There are many conditions that can affect pregnancy. High blood pressure, whether it is a pre-existing condition or what’s known as gestational hypertension that occurs only during pregnancy, is always a cause for concern. Gestational hypertension is also called toxemia and preeclampsia. Other conditions may relate to the mother’s health, the baby’s health or both.

     

  • Diabetes mellitus in pregnancy
    Gestational diabetes mellitus is a form of diabetes that develops during pregnancy. Most doctors are now screening women who are pregnant or trying to become pregnant. Women who have diabetes mellitus before they ever become pregnant should make sure their condition is well controlled before any pregnancy. 

     

  • Female infertility treatment
    Treatment depends on the cause, your age, duration of infertility and your personal preferences. Infertility is a complex disorder and treatment often requires a significant financial, physical, psychological and time commitment. Some women have their fertility restored with just one or two treatments while other women need several different types of treatment, possibly including medications or surgery.

     

  • Ovarian cyst removal
    An ovarian cyst is a pocket of fluid or solid material in or on your ovary. It can be the size of a pea or as big as a baseball. Ovarian cysts are common and many disappear on their own. When they cause symptoms such as sudden, severe stomach pain, fever, dizziness and fast breathing, you should see your doctor immediately. Some ovarian cysts require surgical removal.

     

  • Ultrasound (fetal ultrasound)
    Ultrasound helps us evaluate the development and growth of a fetus in the uterus. Ultrasound is an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images of a developing fetus. Fetal ultrasound typically occurs once during each trimester, but may be needed more frequently if the baby’s health needs closer monitoring.

     

  • Vaginal delivery
    This is the most common and natural type of delivery by far. Vaginal delivery may be spontaneous, assisted (e.g. with forceps) or induced with drugs or manual techniques that initiate labor.
