Our antenatal care is modeled after the Focused Antenatal Care Plan according to the World Health Organisation (WHO). With our Antenatal and Maternity Savings Scheme, pregnant women receive affordable and skilled antenatal care for mother and child right up to and after delivery. Care includes:
Routine antenatal check and investigations including full blood count
Routine antenatal medications
Postnatal care, which is given to a mother and her new-born baby immediately after birth up to six weeks after birth, is offered to new mothers and their babies. Infant and maternal health and well-being is ensured by:
Delaying facility discharge in the first 24 hours after birth and visiting homes in the case of home deliveries
Four postnatal hospital or home visits in the six weeks after birth to assess mother and baby
Neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). This is for the smallest and the sickest babies. These babies have serious health problems, are very premature, and have very low birth weight.
High-dependency care- This is for babies whose illness or level of prematurity does not require them to be in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) but who still plenty observation, support and complex care.
Special Baby Care Unit (SBCU)- This is for babies who were born closer to their due date or who have a less serious illness. If your baby was born very early but is growing well, or recovering after a serious illness, he may be transferred to special care.
