Who Needs Obstetric Care?
Anyone that is pregnant or planning to become pregnant should look for local obstetric care. Seeking the advice of a professional trained in obstetrics can mean better care for both mom and baby.
Our specialists deal with everything surrounding a pregnancy, including prenatal care up to delivery and postnatal care in the months after you give birth. If you’re currently seeing a gynecologist, you’ll need an OB/GYN who is also trained in obstetrics to monitor your pregnancy and treat any complications that may arise leading up to and after delivery. We offer obstetric care that will guide you through your entire pregnancy and beyond.
If you are high-risk or have any complications during your pregnancy, our obstetricians can recognize and help remedy any issues as well as keep you informed. They can explain what’s going on in terms you’ll understand to help you feel more comfortable, and they know when it’s necessary to work with a specialist. Our obstetricians are familiar with treating complications like ectopic pregnancies, where the fetus grows outside the uterus, or fetal distress, where the fetus may not be doing well for one reason or another. They are also prepared for complications like placenta issues, preeclampsia or delivery through Cesarean section if necessary.

Hear why our patients say VPFW offers the best obstetric care in Richmond, VA:
“I have been a patient of VPFW for 10+ years! I recommend them to any and everyone. I recently had my first baby with VPFW, and my pregnancy was not the easiest. I had severe preeclampsia and prenatal/postpartum anxiety and depression. I would call whenever I needed a listening ear, and they also helped point me in the right direction regarding therapy. They were thorough and listened to all of my concerns; and not once did they make me feel ashamed. I am and will always be proud to say I am a patient of VPFW.”
“I’ve been going to VPFW for over a year and have nothing but positive things to say. I just experienced my first pregnancy/birth and am now being seen postpartum. I’ve visited most of their locations for both scheduled appointments and emergency check-ins. Everyone from the front desk staff, on-call nurses, and multiple doctors I worked with are kind, caring, and professional.”
“From the moment I walk in until I leave, I am always treated like a very welcomed patient, as if I am part of the family. Every member of the staff is kind and considerate. I wouldn’t dream of going to another OB/GYN.”
