Obstetrics is a medical specialty closely linked to gynaecology. However, the two aren’t the same. Obstetrics specifically focuses on your health and your baby’s health from the time of conception, throughout your pregnancy, to the time you give birth and shortly after. 

Our practice can provide treatments and services, including surgery, to make your pregnancy as smooth as possible. We also provide high-risk obstetric care if you or your baby have health complications that could compromise the health of the pregnancy. 

Dr Hall can help you create a birth plan that makes you feel confident and safe. If any unforeseen complications occur during your pregnancy, he can provide necessary testing and treatment to get the pregnancy back on track.

One of the major complications that can arise during family planning is infertility. Generally, an infertility diagnosis requires that you try to conceive for a year or longer without success, or six months if you’re 35 or older. It might be on the part of you or your partner, or for unknown reasons. 


The process of conception is complex, and many issues could cause infertility. Common causes of infertility in women include:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Low egg count
  • Hormone imbalances from the hypothalamus or pituitary gland
  • Premature menopause
  • Menopause
  • Endometriosis
  • Uterine structural issues (e.g., fibroids, endometriosis adhesions) 


We can diagnose infertility issues like these, and help you select one or more treatments for infertility to improve your chances of conception. 

Our practice offers several services that play important roles in planning a pregnancy. Depending on your needs and the needs of your partner, your provider might recommend:

  • Contraceptives

Choosing an effective contraceptive and learning to use it properly allows you to avoid pregnancy before you’re ready. Many contraceptive options are temporary, and you can stop using them at any time when you’re ready to conceive.

  • Genetic testing

Genetic tests show chromosomal abnormalities in yourself and your partner that you might pass on to your future children. Some study specific genes, while others analyse whole strands of DNA within a chromosome.

  • Fertility treatments

With fertility treatments like medications and surgeries, you can improve your chances of getting pregnant even if you’ve had trouble in the past.

  • Intrauterine insemination

Intrauterine insemination is another treatment for infertility. Your provider places sperm directly in your uterus to help the fertilization process.


We can also refer you to trusted subspecialists in the area for additional fertility treatments, like in vitro fertilization (IVF).

Family planning can give you and your partner more confidence about becoming pregnant.
