What is Obstetrics & Gynecology?

Obstetrics and gynecology are specialties within the field of women’s health.


Obstetrics is a branch of medicine that is more closely associated with pregnancy, labor, childbirth and postpartum care. Physicians in the field of obstetrics & gynecology specialize in both branches of medicine, establishing long-term relationships with women as they move into, through and out of their childbearing years.


Gynecology is a branch of medicine that focuses on women’s reproductive health from puberty through adulthood. Instead of focusing on childbirth, this branch includes the diagnosis, treatment and preventive care of the female reproductive system

Our FHP Obstetrics & Gynecology team is proud to provide comprehensive, compassionate care. Whether you are navigating menopause, planning a family or simply committed to maintaining your health, our team of experts is prepared to guide you.
