Childbirth care

Historically, women have delivered at home and been attended and supported by other women during labour and delivery . However, the majority of women in our countries nowadays give birth in hospitals, where labour and delivery are regarded as medical events.
In recent years women and social movements, as well as health policy-makers, have called not only for making childbirth more natural, but also for continuous support by and for women during labour.
The benefits of continuous labour support in terms of maternal and perinatal outcomes are clear: women have more spontaneous vaginal birth, shorter duration of labour, less use of labour analgesia, fewer caesarean sections and instrumental deliveries and less babies with low 5-minute Apgar scores. Additionally, women express more satisfaction with birth experience.

Gynecologic surgery

Gynecological surgery refers to surgery on the female reproductive system.
Gynecological surgery is usually performed by gynecologists, and includes procedures for benign conditions, cancer, infertility, and urinary incontinence.
Gynecological surgery may occasionally be performed for elective or cosmetic purposes.

Gynecologic oncologic surgery

A gynecologic oncologic surgeon is an obstetrician/gynecologist who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of women with cancer of the reproductive organs. Specifically, the gynecologic oncologic surgeon treats cancer of the ovary, endometrium, uterus, cervix, vagina, vulva and breast.

Prenatal care

Prenatal care is the health care you get while you are pregnant. It includes your checkups and prenatal testing. Prenatal care can help keep you and your baby healthy.
Your doctor or midwife will give you a schedule for your prenatal visits.
If you are over 35 years old or your pregnancy is high risk because of health problems like diabetes or high blood pressure, your doctor or midwife will probably want to see you more often. You can also expect to see your health care provider more often as your due date gets closer.


Obstetric echography is the use of medical ultrasound in pregnancy. This procedure is a standard part of prenatal care. It provides a variety of information about the health of the mother, the timing and progress of the pregnancy, and the health and development of the fetus.
Gynecologic echography refers to the application of medical ultrasonography to the female pelvic organs (uterus, ovaris, tubes, bladder).


Hysteroscopy is the inspection of the uterine cavity by endoscopy with access through the cervix.
It allows for the diagnosis of intrauterine pathology and serves as a method for surgical intervention (operative hysteroscopy).


Laparoscopy is a surgical diagnostic procedure used to examine the organs inside the abdomen. It is a low-risk, minimally invasive procedure.
Laparoscopy uses an instrument called a laparoscope to look at the abdominal organs. A laparoscope is a long, thin tube with a high-intensity light and a high-resolution camera at the front. The instrument is inserted through an incision in the abdominal wall. As it moves along, the camera sends images to a video monitor.
Laparoscopy allows your doctor to see inside your body in real time, without open surgery. Your doctor also can obtain biopsy samples during this procedure.

Breast pathology

Assisted reproduction technology

Assisted Reproduction Technology (ART) is the technology used to get a pregnancy with fertility medication, intrauterine insemination, in vitro fertilization, intracytoplasmic sperm injection, cryopreservation, surrogacy, and others.
Other ART tecniques are used with regard to fertile couples for genetic reasons, such as preimplantation genetic diagnosis.

Pelvic floor

As with any illness, prevention is better than treatment.
This means appropriate antenatal and intrapartum care and regular postnatal pelvic floor exercises to reduce the risk of childbirth damage.
In postmenopausal women, oestrogen cream helps maintain tissue strength. Where prolapse is severe, symptoms are troublesome and conservative treatment has failed, surgery is the next option. Vaginal surgery is the usual method of repair. Abdominal surgery, on the other hand, is usually performed when there is urinary stress incontinence or when vaginal surgery has failed. The choice of technique will generally depend upon the type, the severity of the prolapse and the surgeon’s experience.

Neural therapy

Neural Therapy has been described as a form of Alternative Medicine for treating illness and chronic pain. Local anesthetic is injected into certain locations of the body.
Neural Therapy is “a bizarre approach claimed to treat pain and disease by injecting local anesthetics into nerves, scars, glands, trigger points, and other tissues”.
Neural Therapy is practiced mostly in South America and Europe.
A 2007 survey of family physicians in Germany found Neural Therapy to be among the most used of Alternative Medical techniques.
