Cloudnine’s Maternity Unit includes spacious and comfortable LDRs – Labour, Delivery and Recovery rooms and state-of-the-art Operation Theatres.
Cloudnine’s LDR’s – Labour, Delivery and Recovery rooms – provide mothers-to-be a homelike atmosphere. Thanks to our LDR, expectant mothers are no longer required to be moved from one place to another and can experience an uninterrupted birthing process for the duration of the labour, delivery, and recovery period. Designed to provide the feel of home, each LDR is furnished with an advanced multipurpose bed and all the equipment necessary for safe and comfortable delivery.
Mothers-to-be can even bring along their favourite music and we will play it for them during labour to help them relax!
Our state-of-the-art OTs have the latest technology to perform requisite procedures. They are equipped to handle any complications, ensuring the wellbeing of both mother and child. The high level of infection control maintained in the OT ensures faster recovery for patients.
At Cloudnine, our standard practice is to have a Paediatrician present with the Obstetrician during a C section, to ensure the best outcome for the newborn. Our unmatched early neonatal survival rates of 99.72% is a testament to our high standards of care.
Our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit is certified by the National Neonatology Forum as Level III – the highest level of intensive care. It has the most advanced equipment in the world like GE Giraffe incubators and all required infrastructure to care for sick babies including ventilation, HFOV and Nitric Oxide, amongst other facilities.
We provide specialized nursery care for babies from 24 weeks gestation onwards. Premature babies (born before 37 weeks & after 24 weeks gestation) and sick babies are clinically assessed and cared for in the NICU until they can be transferred to the ward.
Reasons for admission include
The care-giving team
There are many people involved in the care of babies admitted to the NICU. The specially-trained nursing team is headed by a nurse manager. Each baby will be under the care of a consultant Neonatologist. A member of the neonatology team will visit the baby every day and will be available 24 hours a day.
Your Neonatologist will visit you in your room to discuss the care of your baby and you are also welcome to visit the NICU during rounds. Pediatric specialists from many fields including surgery, cardiology, nephrology, gastroenterology, genetics, pathology, radiology and ultrasound are also available, if the need arises.
The birth of a premature or sick baby can be stressful for the whole family. However, the time a baby spends in the NICU will be brief, and our staff is well-trained in this field to provide the required care and help prepare the baby for discharge.
Involvement of Parents
The presence of parents is very important in a newborn’s life. Your voice and gentle touch are valuable forms of comforting communication for your baby. We encourage you to involve yourselves in the care of the baby, while he or she is in the NICU. As soon as your baby’s condition allows, we will support you in providing care such as feeding, nappy changing, bathing and other routines.
Your baby’s care methodology may change frequently, depending on progress, and information updates will be shared with you. Please do not hesitate to ask questions as we value and encourage your visits and participation. Relatives other than the parents will not be allowed in the NICU. The reason is to avoid the little babies from being exposed to possible infections.
Once your baby is ready to be discharged from NICU, we ensure that you are ready and confident about handling your new born. We provide a home-like environment in our Luxury room and guide and support you in this transition phase.
