2 Reasons why Americans need a gynecologist to give birth

Share

For generations, women have given birth without the aid of a doctor. So, why do Americans now need a gynecologist to give birth? The simple answer is that times have changed. Childbirth is now considered a medical procedure, and as such, requires the expertise of a medical professional. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at the reasons why you need a gynecologist to give birth in the United States.

 

Risks Associated with Childbirth

One of the most important reasons why you need a gynecologist to give birth is because of the risks associated with childbirth. In the past, women died in childbirth at an alarming rate. Today, thanks to advances in medical care, the maternal mortality rate in the United States is relatively low—but it’s still higher than it should be. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 700 women die each year in the United States as a result of complications from pregnancy or childbirth.

 

While that number may seem small, it’s important to remember that each one of those deaths is preventable. A large majority of maternal deaths are caused by one or more of the following factors:

  • Hemorrhage
  • Infection
  • High blood pressure
  • Cardiac problems
     

These are all conditions that can be treated by a qualified medical professional—which is why it’s so important to have a gynecologist on hand during childbirth.

 

The Benefits of Having a Gynecologist Present During Childbirth

In addition to treatment for any complications that may arise during childbirth, having a gynecologist present also has other benefits. One of the most important benefits is pain management. While some women choose to go natural and forego pain medication during childbirth, others prefer to have an epidural. Either way, having a gynecologist on hand ensures that you will have access to pain relief if you need it.

Another benefit of having a gynecologist present during childbirth is peace of mind. Knowing that there is someone there who can handle any problems that may arise can help put your mind at ease and allow you to focus on the task at hand—giving birth!

While it may seem like an unnecessary expense, hiring a gynecologist to assist with your childbirth is actually very important. From managing complications to ensuring pain relief, gynecologists play a vital role in ensuring that both you and your baby are healthy and safe during childbirth. So, if you’re expecting, be sure to schedule an appointment with your OBGYN today!
