    Babies at Fernandez Hospital receive comprehensive, high-quality care from our multidisciplinary team. Every delivery is attended by a competent team capable of resuscitation and care after birth. We include all members of the healthcare team and the family in discussions related to each patient's diagnosis, treatment plan and progress.

    NEONATAL INTENSIVE CARE UNIT (NICU)

    A dedicated and motivated team of Neonatologists, Paediatricians and intensive care nurses provides round the clock surveillance.

    The NICU has facilities to care for the sick and premature newborn. Along with the intensive facilities required to care for the ill newborn, Kangaroo Mother Care (skin to skin contact), a low-cost concept for preterm care in stable babies is encouraged. In Kangaroo Mother Care, once the preterm or the low-birth-weight baby is stable, the baby is given the skin-to-skin contact by the mother, like the kangaroo keeps the baby in the pouch till it grows.

    There is a programme for problem neonates requiring extra care and long-term follow up. This involves a Paediatric Surgeon, Anaesthetist, Paediatric Cardiologist, Ophthalmologist, Orthopaedic Surgeon, Physiotherapist, Audiologist, Plastic Surgeon, Endocrinologist, Dermatologist and Neurosurgeon.

    NEWBORN SCREENING

    Most babies we deliver are healthy, but it is important that every newborn is comprehensively checked. The screening test is done before your baby leaves the hospital. A simple test using the cord blood is done by our laboratory soon after the birth. Since a few disorders are not noticeable in the newborn, early detection, diagnosis, and intervention can prevent death or disability that is caused by an inherited metabolic disorder.
