The two more commonly used people to deliver a baby are: obstetrician and midwife. Both are trained in the delivery of babies, the approaches they use are different. Obstetricians are trained to deliver babies safely and to deal with any complications or illnesses the pregnant and deliverying mom may encounter. Obstetricians deliver the majority of babies born in the U.S. Midwives have various levels of medical training and can deliver a baby safely when the pregnancy is not high risk and there are no complications. Most midwives are associated with a medical hospital or medical center in case of emergencies during delivery.

A delivery doctor and the doctor who usually provides prenatal care is called an obstetrician.
Yes, an obgyn (obstetrician/gynecologist) is the one who will "deliver" your baby. However, he doesn't HELP you give birth,as in he doesn't stay with you throughout labor …and give you emotional support. So if that's what you were asking, then you'll need a doula or a midwife. Doulas don't deliver the baby, but they give you great support during labor. Midwives deliver babies, but many of them will rpovide more emotional support than an obgyn. This answer is based on a US model of care.
