In the US, more women use obstetricians rather than midwives, who are specialists, not only in healthy pregnancies, but also in diseases related to maternity and surgery. Obstetricians are doctors and can provide surgery and instrumental deliveries in situations requiring them.Midwives refer women to specialists such as obstetricians or Perinatologists in complications related to pregnancy and childbirth when a pregnant woman requires care beyond the scope of practicing midwives.
