Postnatal care

After 9 months of pregnancy most awaited moment arrives that brings all the joy to the family. All the suffering a mother goes through fades away as she sees her newborn baby. But a new challenge awaits her; which is taking care of a newborn and herself.

Now let’s talk about care to be taken after the child birth which in medical term is known as postnatal care (after birth). This care is taken up to 6 weeks after the child birth.

We provide facilities that allow the staff to observe the mother and the new born 24X7. The qualified staff and the doctors are trained to see any of the minute variations in the behavior other than expected one.

It is extremely important to take care of the baby and the mother after the child’s birth because they have high risk of dying due to:

  • Infection
  • Physical, atmospheric changes.

It is of high priority to observe them continuously.

Postnatal care
Patients sometimes ask for their rituals to be followed like tying holy bands to baby and mother, giving them ”prasad” and some of the rituals. But we are strict about certain rules cause a new born and mother both are imposed to lots of dangers.
  • We keep mother and a newborn under observation at least for 24 hours.
  • Our hospital never discharges delivered women in a day or 24 hours.
  • During this period mother is monitored for bleeding, bowel and bladder function, and baby care. Especially mother’s bleeding is observed, if it exceeds it might considered as fatal condition. We start the treatments and medication immediately after observing the changes.
  • Newborn baby’s appearance, pulse, respiration are checked.

We highly recommend that after birth -

  • Child should be in skin to skin contact with mother which is good for the health of infant.
  • Mother should take complete bed rest after the childbirth.
  • They should have proper food including fruits, juices and nutrition rich substances.

Till now we saw physiological health of a mother. But, after childbirth a mother goes through postpartum period. Such postpartum depression is very common in mothers. It can last up to 6 months. We as team care not only the physical but also the mental health of mother.

  • Other family members to give special treatment to the newly conceived mother
  • Her partner to give special attention and support which will help her to recover from the depression
  • To encourage her to meet a friend
  • To take her outside
  • To let her do things which make them happy like drawing singing etc.
