Beams Hospital Bangalore offers top quality maternity services taking every step possible to make it as comfortable and convenient for the mothers and their babies. We try our best to do normal deliveries which will keep both the mother and the baby healthy. We have Labour Rooms that are well-equipped with sophisticated equipment and state-of-the-art facilities that help us to provide the best care and support possible to the mothers in making their dreams come true. We have a dedicated team of qualified gynecologists and obstetricians who are supported by well-trained nursing staff members who have several years of experience in bringing many new-borns into this world.
In cases of first pregnancies it is quite natural to feel unsure and nervous about going to the hospital for the delivery. However, we, at Beams Hospital Bangalore, make sure we give you all the support you require to make you feel confident and excited about welcoming your new baby into this world. We understand how precious your baby is to you. Through our dedicated and qualified team, we make sure we make you feel as comfortable as possible when you meet your newborn and even after that.
It’s important that you go for regular ante-natal checkups during your entire pregnancy, this will help the doctor to decide if you can have a normal delivery. It is also important to understand when you need to get admitted to Beams for your normal delivery:
- In case your water has broken
- In case you are having contractions every 5 minutes and if they are strong and last for about 45 to 60 seconds, even if your waters have not been broken
- In case you stay far off from the hospital you may have to start as soon as you see any signs of labour
- If it is your second baby you may have to come early
Do give us a call before you leave home, take notes and carry them with you along with a change of clothes.
- As soon as you reach Beams Hospital Bangalore for your delivery, one of our qualified nurses will check your pulse, your BP, your temperature and take a urine test.
- Then a foetal monitoring will be done to check your baby’s position and heart beat.
- An internal examination may be done to find out if your cervix has dilated. If you are having a contraction you need to inform so that the examination can be halted till it passes. Once it has dilated sufficiently it might be time for labour or your normal delivery.
Stages of Normal Delivery:
- First stage: This is when your membranes will rupture and your cervix will be fully dilated for the passage of your baby’s head (10 cm dilation if the baby is full term).
- Second stage: This is the stage of fetal expulsion. It begins with the full dilation of the cervix and ends with the birth of the baby.
- Third Stage: The third stage refers to the stage of placenta delivery. The umbilical cord that is attached to your baby will be cut and clamped. After your baby has been delivered it could take about 10 to 12 minutes for your placenta to be expelled completely. In case it is taking longer our team will be there to do the same with some medical assistance.
- Fourth Stage: this will be the postnatal stage where your newborn gets settled into a life, outside your womb. During this phase your uterus will return to its normal size, balancing your hormone levels. Extreme care is required during this stage, which we will provide at Beams Hospital Bangalore. We give you appropriate instructions before you get discharged from our hospital. If you have any questions about feeding your baby or taking care of yourself or your baby, you can ask at this stage.
Our team members are highly qualified and well-experienced in managing things during normal delivery including:
- Preparation: Taking the necessary precautions to prevent any kind of infections that may occur during the normal delivery
- Active Management: Assessment of cervical dilation including administering oxytocin if the dilation does not occur properly
- Labour Induction: Inducing labour in cases such as Abruptio placentae (premature separation of the placenta from the uterus), Chorioamnionitis (inflammation of foetal membranes due to bacterial infection), isoimmunization leading to hemolytic disease of the newborn, oligohydramnios (deficiency of amniotic fluid), foetal demise, gestational hypertension, maternal conditions such as gestational diabetes or chronic kidney disease, pre-eclampsia or eclampsia, premature rupture of membranes or post-term pregnancy
- Pain control: Helping the patient manage the pain through pharmaceutical and non-pharmaceutical methods, providing adequate moral support and encouragement
- Augmentation: To facilitate faster labour
- Episiotomy: Taking care of vaginal tears during child-birth
- Instrumental Delivery: Using ventouse or obstetrics forceps to facilitate delivery
- Multiple Births: In case both the twins are born vaginally
- Support: Providing different kinds of support such as emotional support, comfort measures as well as information that can comfort the patient during childbirth
- Fetal Monitoring: Monitoring the foetus by using a pinardstethoscope, doppler fetal monitor or a cardiotocograph. At times, we may even have to use a foetal scalp electrode to give an additional measure of fetal heart activity, and/or intrauterine pressure catheter (IUPC). We may even have to conduct foetal scalp pH testing.
The facilities we have include labour rooms that have sophisticated equipment and state-of-the-art facilities to handle any kind of complications that may occur during child-birth. You can even go for a birthing suite which will help you enjoy all the comfort and luxuries during your stay.
