Obstetrics Q & A

Why is specialized obstetrics care important?

You benefit from seeing a board-certified OB/GYN for your prenatal and delivery care. Dr. Guballa is a specialist in pregnancy, childbirth, and a woman’s reproductive system. She gives you attentive care throughout your pregnancy and can see you through delivery and post-natal care (and beyond).

Why should I seek prenatal care?

Prenatal care helps ensure a healthy pregnancy and delivery. During your pregnancy, Dr. Guballa provides you with the screening, support, and care you need as you move closer to becoming a mother. She recognizes that each pregnancy is unique.

What should I expect at prenatal visits?

At your first prenatal appointment, Dr. Guballa reviews your health history. The staff gathers basic information about your current weight, blood pressure, and other vital signs. You also undergo blood screening and urine tests to provide more information,

At subsequent appointments, Dr. Guballa assesses your baby’s development at various stages. She takes measurements of your weight and the size of your belly. Fetal ultrasounds give you and the doctor insight into your baby’s development.

What types of obstetrics screening will I undergo?

With advanced medical screenings, you can learn a lot about your baby’s health while you’re pregnant. Exactly what tests you undergo depends on your age, ethnicity, health history, and any symptoms or health conditions you have. Some of the tests that Dr. Guballa may recommend include:

  • Genetic carrier screening tests
  • Cell-free fetal DNA testing
  • Nuchal translucency
  • Chorionic villus sampling
  • Amniocentesis 
  • Fetal growth sonograms or Fetal monitoring/nonstress testing
  • Group B strep culture

What postnatal care does obstetrics cover?

After you have a baby, your need for quality reproductive health care doesn’t end. In the immediate postpartum period, Dr. Guballa ensures that you’re healing well, free of any immediate post-delivery complications, and feeling good about taking care of your infant. She’ll check in with your mental state and breastfeeding.  The "fourth trimester" is equally important for the new mother. 

Dr. Guballa wants to see your smile and recognizes quickly if the smile is showing signs of postpartum blues or if depression is masking that smile. The fourth trimester is not easy; recovery and motherhood can be tough. She wants to be there for you to recognize these subtle changes quickly and expertly. She doesn't want you to go it alone.  

Your obstetrical care continues right into necessary gynecological care that you need even after your family is complete. Dr. Guballa is there for routine screenings, annual pelvic exams, and any unusual pelvic pain or symptoms you experience.
