Gynaecology, OBST & Infertility
Dr. V. G. Stanley MD & Dr. Niji Justin MBBS DGO
Department of Gynaecology
The Department of Gynaecology, obstetrics and infertility is doing never ever attempted complicated delivery cases other than the classic midwifery procedures, we find more and more would be mothers are opting for painless delivery. Many of our infertility clinic patients are now happy fathers and mothers.
Painless Delivery
Gynaecology Department
It is not meant, only as an easy way to give birth to a child without pain, but it also intends to avoid the physical and emotional complications and the trauma to the mother as well as to the child, at the time of delivery.
In western countries, about 85-99% of pregnant women opt painless delivery. But in India, it is not that popular, probably due to the lack of proper information or the shortage of team of well experienced doctors and nurses in this wonderful field of medicine. (But here, in Trichur Heart Hospital, we can proudly claim to have an excellent team of doctors and nursing staff) Advantages of Painless Delivery to the Mother
It helps to reduce the physical fatigue, mental tension and anxiety of the mother at the time of delivery.
In this type of delivery, the mother and the child will be more safe since it shortens the duration of the delivery. Pain- killers like 'Epidermal Analgesia' is used, which results in the effective painless contractions of the uterus and the delivery takes place fast.
It allows. easy flow of blood from the mother to the child in the uterus through the placenta.
To the Child
In this type of delivery, the child gets more oxygen, compared to the normal painful delivery. Some studies show that the children born in this type of delivery show a better intelligence than those who are born with pain.
How the delivery becomes Painless?
Special observations and discussions are offered to the couples, during pregnancy itself.
At the time of delivery, medicines are applied to the mother through epidural catheter. The condition of the mother and the child in the uterus are observed at each stage with special devices. The mother and the child will be under thorough observation constantly.
At Trichur Heart Hospital we have experts for painless Delivery. The members of the panel include highly efficient gynaecologist, well experienced Anaesthesiologist and well trained nurses.
In conclusion, an affair which used to be highly painful and messy is made a pleasant one to remember.
