Obstetrics Q&A Fact Sheets

If you have questions about your care, we encourage you to talk to your doctor. We strive to keep the lines of communication open and try to assist in any way we can to further answer any of your questions. As an additional tool, we have put together a list of the most common topics in gynecology and obstetrics. Just click on the subject and you will be taken American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology (ACOG) website’s Question and Answer Fact Sheet on that topic. ACOG is the nation’s leading authority on women’s health and sets the standard of care in obstetrics and gynecology.

Once you are on the ACOG website, you can also search for other topics. It is a great tool.
