Obstetrics & Gynecology - Maternal Fetal Medicine
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.

Dr. Geoffrey Schnider
Obstetrics & Gynecology
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.
