In brief: SURE
Any md or medical doctor can write for an anti anxiety medication.
However many are not comfortable doing so for a long term basis due to potential abuse problems. They may refer to a psychiatrist after a period of time.

Yes, but some OBGYN would refer you to your primary physician, because they might not feel comfortable with these meds

In brief: Ob/Gyn
Depends on justification, their level of comfort, and if it is a one time prescription until the treating physician takes over.
