Obstetrics caters to the needs of all pregnant women.
When you find out you’re pregnant, visiting an obstetrician should be your top priority if you want to have a healthy pregnancy and provide yourself and your unborn child with the best possible care.
What is Obstetrics? What is an Obstetrician?
Obstetrics has the task of providing pregnant women with all the necessary care, including different tests, screenings, and procedures specifically designed to ensure the progress of your pregnancy. Finding a skilled obstetrician is the first step on your journey to having a happy pregnancy.
At Broward Complete OB/GYN Wellness Center, we care for you. We offer support and assistance to anyone experiencing an unplanned pregnancy. If you think you may be pregnant or have questions about being sexually active, we’re here to help.
We will provide the information and support you need to sort through the choices you face in an unexpected pregnancy and help you make the one that is best for you. No one can decide for you; you owe yourself to know all the facts before you choose.

We offer education on all of your options, whether your choice is parenting, abortion, or adoption. We provide material assistance and ongoing emotional support and counseling.
Be sure you are pregnant. A missed period is the most common indication, but it doesn’t necessarily mean you are pregnant.
Common pregnancy symptoms:
- Late period
- Tender or swollen breasts
- Frequent urination
- Nausea or vomiting
- Lightheadedness or fainting
- Food cravings or aversions
- Darkening of the nipples
Preterm labor is defined as regular contractions of the uterus resulting in changes in the cervix that start before 37 weeks of pregnancy. Changes in the cervix include effacement (the cervix thins out) and dilation (the cervix opens so the fetus can enter the birth canal).
What is premature birth?
When birth occurs between 20 weeks of pregnancy and 37 weeks of pregnancy, it is called preterm birth.
Why is premature birth a concern?
Preterm birth is a concern because babies who are born too early may not be fully developed. They may be born with severe health problems. Some health problems, like cerebral palsy, can last a lifetime. Other issues, such as learning disabilities, may appear later in childhood or even in adulthood.
