Janani Scheme

Janani Scheme is a unique programme designed by the Department of Obstetrics, intended to culminate in the birth of a healthy baby to a healthy mother. The scheme is divided into three segments pertaining to the three phases of a normal pregnancy, namely, the 1st trimester (the initial three months), the 2nd trimester (the intervening three months) and the 3rd trimester (the final three months). Janani scheme is primarily aimed at normal pregnancies and includes clinical evaluation of the mother by experienced obstetricians at regular intervals as well as periodic investigations like blood tests / ultrasound scan etc. as deemed necessary by the consultant doctors. One can join this scheme either in its entirety or for particular segments. Special packages for normal delivery / Caesarian sections, if required, are also available for members of the Janani scheme.

Birthing Suite

The state of the art Birthing Suite makes childbirth an evermore enjoyable process for everyone involved. The plush waiting area takes care of the frizzled dads to be and other members of the family. The modern labour room has a more scientific approach towards labour and birth. The unique bed relaxes the mother and puts minimum strain on her back. And the best thing is the absolute hygeine in the whole place, quite disjointed from the rest of the hospital.
