Obstetrics

Obstetrics deals with the care of women and children during pregnancy (prenatal), childbirth and the postnatal periods. Many obstetricians are also gynaecologists. Caesarean section is the most common surgical procedure. It is a surgical procedure in which one or more incisions is made through a woman’s abdomen and uterus to deliver her baby.
