The Obstetric Unit consists of a special labour and delivery suite. Each of its four well-equipped rooms has a gas delivery system for pain relief during labour, advanced foetal monitoring and post-delivery neo-natal resuscitation facilities.
Epidural analgesia is offered. A paediatrician remains in attendance for complicated and Caesarean Section deliveries, while a Special Care Baby Unit handles premature infants or those requiring special attention.
The department also provides expert management for the entire range of gynaecological disorders. Laparoscopy, hysteroscopy and colposcopy are performed where indicated.
Out-patient services include pre-conception counseling, Parentcraft classes, Infertility clinic, and comprehensive antenatal and postnatal care. It is one of the few centers in the UAE that offers amniocentesis for detecting foetal abnormalities. There is also an active "Well Woman" clinic where facilities for cervical cytology, hormone replacement therapy and contraception advice are available.
