Gynaecology and obstetrics are the studies of the female reproductive system.
What’s the difference between gynaecology and obstetrics?
Gynaecology normally means treating women who aren’t pregnant, while obstetrics deals with pregnant women and their unborn children, but there is lots of crossover between the two. For example, women may be referred to gynaecologists in the earlier stages of pregnancy, and obstetricians later in their term.
What do gynaecologists and obstetricians do?
Gynaecologists and obstetricians use a range of surgical and medical procedures.
Some of tge Gynaecological procedures are:
Hysterectomy - Uterus removal
Myomectomy - Removal of uterine fibroids

Some of the Obstetric procedures include:
Normal Delivery: Best way of delivery in an umcomplicated case.
Caesarean Section: surgically cutting a baby out from its mother’s womb to avoid problems during labour.
Cervical suture: using suture or tape to strengthen a woman’s cervix to prevent miscarriages.
External cephalic version (ECV): turning the baby around in the womb so it is in the correct position for birth.
Gynaecologists and obstetricians often work closely with midwives and nurses to give best possible outcome to the expectant mother.
