Obstetrics Q & A

What is obstetrics?

Obstetrics is a field of medicine that focuses on the health of expectant mothers and their unborn children.

Dr. Gomes helps you navigate your pregnancy – from conception to birth — as well as during your initial postpartum experience. He focuses on one-on-one care to address your individual needs and support the healthy development of your baby.

What obstetrics services are available?

Women’s Healthcare of Garden City offers comprehensive, compassionate obstetrics care for both low-risk and high-risk pregnancies.

High-risk pregnancies are those that put the mother or baby at risk for complications. You may have a high-risk pregnancy if you have conditions like diabetes or a thyroid disorder, if you’re over 35, or carrying multiples.

Dr. Gomes specializes in high-quality pregnancy care services including:

  • Pregnancy testing
  • Prenatal exams
  • Blood testing
  • Genetic testing
  • Ultrasound screenings
  • Labor and delivery plans

For women who have difficulties becoming pregnant, Dr. Gomes provides diagnostic testing services to identify the cause of infertility.

Dr. Gomes also provides complete care for women who have experienced traumatic pregnancies or miscarriages. He has worked alongside many women who have had difficult pregnancies in the past, and he helps them navigate lingering traumas while ensuring the safest possible prenatal care and delivery.

What can I expect during my obstetrics appointment?

Dr. Gomes prioritizes individualized care, honoring every patient’s unique journey through pregnancy. He and his team often see women more frequently than what is considered standard. He also prioritizes direct and consistent communication, and you’ll be able to reach Dr. Gomes if you have concerns or questions throughout the pregnancy process.

Before your delivery date, Dr. Gomes creates a detailed labor and delivery plan unique to you that helps you prepare for your child’s birth. He can also provide resources for breastfeeding counseling and childbirth classes, so you know what to expect when your baby is born.

Dr. Gomes also provides high-quality postpartum care after delivery. You can expect to have a follow-up visit about six weeks after you give birth, though he typically sees patients sooner. He also checks in with you to ensure you’re navigating motherhood well and aren’t feeling stressed, anxious, or showing signs of postpartum depression.

If you need birth control after delivery, Dr. Gomes can help you choose the best option for your needs and determine when you can start using it.
