In brief: Complicated

Obstetricians provide care for pregnant patients and deliver babies.
Gynecologists can help pts become pregnant if they experience infertility, and they can perform surgeries. Most general ob/gyns do both. Pure gynecologists do not deliver babies and focus on office visits and surgeries.
