Maternity care, also known as prenatal care is a type of preventive healthcare. Having a healthy pregnancy is vital and leads to a healthy birth. With early and regular prenatal care the chances of a healthy pregnancy improve greatly. The health care provider can guide through proper care that can begin even before pregnancy with preconception care. The goal is to undertake regular check-ups that allow preventive treatments of potential health problems throughout the course of pregnancy and to promote a healthy lifestyle that benefits both mother and child. Prenatal care can ensure a healthy pregnancy by preventing complications.
A high-risk pregnancy is one in which due to some conditions the mother, the developing baby, or both are at higher than normal risk for complications during the pregnancy or after the birth. About 10-15% of all pregnancies are high-risk pregnancies. They often require specialised care from specially trained gynaecologists and obstetricians.
It is always advisable to a couple who is planning a pregnancy to consult a healthcare provider. The healthcare provider might prescribe a daily prenatal vitamin with folic acid along with a guide to reach a healthy weight before attaining pregnancy. If one has a medical condition, the treatment might need to be adjusted to prepare for pregnancy. Your health care provider might also discuss your risks of having a baby with a genetic condition.
One of the most severe pains experienced by a woman is during the childbirth. We at OMNI provide pain relief methods (like epidural analgesia) to reduce the severity of pain and enjoy the experience of childbirth.
It includes evaluation, treatment and support for young women as they undergo a transition in their gynaecological health.
Infertility is defined as the inability to conceive after a year of unprotected sexual intercourse. About 10-15% of women suffer from this. We provide services like fertility evaluation, Controlled ovarian stimulation, intrauterine insemination (IUI), in-vitro fertilisation (IVF), and intracytoplasmic sperm injection (ICSI).
Many women experience changes in vaginal bleeding during their menstrual cycles. The flow is heavier or lighter than normal, the bleeding pattern changes and lasts longer or shorter than normal. This could be as a result of hormonal imbalances, an abnormal lining of the womb, polyps, fibroids or endometriosis, or cancer.
Investigations for such conditions include blood tests, USG, direct visualisation with hysteroscopy and biopsies. Depending on the cause, the treatment may involve hormonal medication minor or major surgery.
Minimally invasive surgery:
Minimally invasive surgery (also known as laparoscopic surgery) is a way of doing surgery using small incisions (usually no more than 1/2 inch long). A long slender device called a laparoscope is inserted into the abdomen through a small incision. A camera attached to it allows the obstetrician–gynaecologist (ob-gyn) to view the abdominal and pelvic organs on an electronic screen. If a problem exists it can be fixed with the help of other instruments.
Laparoscopy has many benefits such as smaller scars, quick recovery and precise surgery with minimum tissue damage, reduced risk of infection.
Urogynaecology services include the care of women with incontinence, bladder problems including recurrent UTIs, voiding difficulties, genital prolapse, urinary fistulas. We have a multidisciplinary approach which includes specially trained gynaecologists, urologists and physiotherapists.
Screening and Diagnosis of cancer:
We believe in regular health screening to prevent illnesses. We offer women a pelvic exam, Pap test, HPV test, clinical breast exam, mammogram as a routine screening, and endometrial biopsies and breast MRI for women with a high risk of cervical, breast, endometrial, ovarian cancers are detected by these tests. We offer appropriate treatment depending on the stage of cancer.
Menopause is a natural event in a woman’s life. It usually occurs between 45-55 years old women. We offer services to identify and treat the symptoms, and to support the long term changes of Menopause.
The department of gynae-laparoscopy surgery deals with every form of gynaecological disorders that a woman might face at any point of her life like cases of endometriosis, pelvic inflammatory disease, ovarian cysts and uterine fibroids or polyps. All of these can be treated with laparoscopic surgeries.
Giggles by OMNI Hospitals offer a unique concept of ‘Parent Craft’ classes for expectant mothers. The classes guide mothers on diet and nutrition. The women are educated about exercise and lifestyle to be followed during the duration of the pregnancy. These guidelines help expectant mothers avoid unforeseen complications.
