  • Deliveries, abortions, removing ectopic pregnancy, and in utero surgery on the fetus.
  • Associated procedures such as monitoring, cerclage, laceration repair, induction of labor, control of postpartum hemorrhage.
  • Additional topics include in vitro fertilization and artificial insemination.

Coding of obstetrical conditions and procedures requires coders to master unique terminology and concepts.  ICD-10-PCS: Obstetrical Procedure Coding includes our proprietary Obstetrics Glossary which defines over 120 common terms obstetrical coders need to know.
