    The new born spends most of their time in the room with the mother. This will enable parents to bond with their babies and prepare them to provide the best possible care at home.
  • Birth Information certificate
    The birth certificate detail is submitted by the hospital to Municipal Corporation. This is to be done within 21 days of birth. You may contact the corporation to apply for your new born’s birth certificate. Registering your child’s birth with the municipal authorities is an
    essential legal process. It is an essential document and has implications for your child’s future.

Special services

  • Intra Uterine insemination
    Intrauterine insemination (IUI) is a procedure that involves placing sperm inside a woman’s uterus to facilitate fertilization. The IUI procedure takes little time and involves minimal discomfort.
  • What is IUI
    IUI is a fertility treatment by placing a number of washed sperm directly into the uterus. The goal of IUI is to increase the number of sperm that reach the fallopian tubes and subsequently increase the chance of fertilization
  • When is IUI used
    IUI is a fertility treatment often selected by couples who have been trying to conceive for at least one year with no success
  • IUI may be selected as a fertility treatment with any of the following conditions:
    • Unexplained infertility
    • Low sperm count
    • Decreased sperm mobility
    • Requirement of donor sperm
    • A hostile cervical condition, such as cervical mucus that is too thick
    • Cervical scar tissue from past procedures or endometriosis
    • Ejaculation dysfunction
  • How Successful Is IUI
    Women under the age of 35 usually have higher rates of success than women over age 35, but the average success rate for IUI ranges from 10-20% in one cycle.
