Maternity Services

The Maternity services we provide is based on a comprehensive program of care, from conception through delivery and beyond. Services include an early pregnancy assessment clinic, antenatal and post-natal clinics, and a day assessment unit for pregnancy problems. The centre also provides health screening and advises patients on choice of contraceptive.

 

The antenatal clinic caters for expectant parents'; the mother's and baby's health is monitored, maintained and optimized to ensure a healthy pregnancy, safe delivery and post delivery period. The clinic helps to detect problems during pregnancy and arrest them so that they do not affect the health of the mother and baby. The clinic is run by an obstetrician/gynaecologist and experienced nurses and midwives who assist mothers as well as counsel them through their first trimesters to the journey home with their new babies.
