As set forth in Ministry of Health Decree no. 740 (14 September 1994, as subsequently amended), an obstetrician is a healthcare professional who attends to, and advises, women during pregnancy, childbirth, and the post-partum period, delivers babies in natural childbirth, and provides care to the new-born child, and in gynaecology. Obstetric care to the woman, and during the reproductive process, requires all of the following: technical skills, preventative action, treatment plans, palliative and rehabilitative care, as well as a proper bedside manner and the ability to provide patient education.
Obstetrics perform their professional activities in public or private clinics and hospitals, either as an employee or as a freelance professional; they contribute to their own professional development, as well as that of their support staff, provide continuing education, and work on research.
