Maternity Services

Expecting a baby? Prashanth Women and Children Hospital is one of the best maternity hospitals in Chennai. We know that it is the most precious moment for you and your family. We understand your joy and happiness and at the same time your anxiety that all should go well. That’s why we are here to help you sail through the pregnancy with the best gynecologist doctors in Chennai, treating you with compassion.

We will provide you with all the necessary care and services you would need during your pregnancy including your antenatal care, advice, exercises, and lactation counseling. During your pregnancy, we offer all the specialized services that you will need including periodical ultrasounds, regular check-ups with the obstetrician, 4D scan, exercises, lactation counseling, consultation, and treatment for gestational diabetes (if you are diabetic).

Prashanth has a state-of-the-art 4D real-time ultrasound imaging system, which is used in analyzing fetal development. You can experience the joy of seeing your baby. This technologically advanced, high-resolution system produces 4D images of your baby and helps you see the baby moving on a screen.

As for your delivery, we assure you that you will receive the highest quality of care. We offer different rooms to suit your choice – from a Royal suite to luxury suites and deluxe rooms which will offer you the ambiance for this special moment of yours. If you have a normal pregnancy and are in labor, you will be encouraged to move around in labor, because keeping upright is thought to help facilitate effective uterine contractions and promote good positioning of the baby. Rest, keeping well hydrated and eating a light diet (if you don’t feel nauseous) are also very important.

In the case of normal delivery, you will stay in the same room until you go home within the next 3 days. Before you go home, yours and the baby’s health will be checked and our lactation consultant will support you with tips to breastfeed your baby the right way! In case you deliver by Caesarian, your stay will be for a minimum of 5 days at the hospital. You would be given adequate pain relief medications and physiotherapy to speed-up your recovery.

Caring for your newborn

Skin to skin contact between you and your baby as soon as possible after birth is a lovely way to welcome your baby. It helps to keep them warm and calm them after they have been born. It also tends to tempt them into breastfeeding. Continuing to have skin to skin contact in the days and weeks after birth is a really good way to reassure and comfort the baby. Keeping the baby close at night is also very important. It can be very helpful to breastfeed your baby in bed. However, it is safer to put them down to sleep in a cot near the bed after feeding.

Feeding your baby

If you are breast or formula feeding, it is important that you know possible feeding cues such as mouth movements, restlessness, sucking hands, and turning in towards your breasts. Most babies will show their feeding cues before they start to cry. It is often easier to feed your baby when they show these early feeding cues.

Special care

If the baby is premature or needs surgical care, he/she will be cared for in our exclusive Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU).

We also have the best gynecologists in Chennai for infertility.
