In brief: Both.

Obstetricians can order and interpret most prenatal tests.
Maternal-fetal medicine specialists (perinatologists) can order, perform and/or interpret all prenatal tests.

In brief: Prenatal care

General ob/gyns do all routine prenatal testing - OB profile lab, genetic screening, diabetes screening.
Many also do ultrasound exams. For more complex evaluation and testing they may refer you to a perinatologist.
