What if my pregnancy is high-risk

All of our mothers and babies receive special attention, but some do require more advanced medical care. Our hospitals can handle complications, including conditions such as multiple-births, premature labor, gestational diabetes, high blood pressure or premature rupture of membranes etc. If your pregnancy is high risk you may need more number of visits with your doctor or prolonged in patient care. We also have ICU facilities to manage serious complications if they arise.

Can I get painless labour

If you choose to receive pain relief, lanbour analgesia- EPIDURAL- is administered by our anesthesiologists who are available around-the-clock. There are intravenous (IV) pain medications that can be used in labor. It’s a good idea to discuss pain control options with your doctor during your antenatal visits. Your childbirth preparation classes will also talk about pain relief choices for labor.
