Maternity Services

Since it was opened in June 2019, this purpose-built maternity units offers labour and delivery private rooms equipped with flexible delivery beds and facilitates easy monitoring of the condition of mother and baby. The unit also has monitoring equipment for mothers with medical complications such as pre-eclampsia (high blood pressure).

Since it was established the facility has helped 28 women to deliver successfully.

Maternity Services

Once every month we offer ultrasound services to people from the community.

It is used for the following purposes within the facility:

  • Measuring the size of the fetus to determine the due date
  • Determining the position of the fetus to see if it is in the normal head down position or breech
  • Checking the position of the placenta to see if it is improperly developing over the opening to the uterus (cervix)
  • Seeing the number of fetuses in the uterus
  • Checking the sex of the baby (if the genital area can be clearly seen)
  • Checking the fetus's growth rate by making many measurements over time
  • Detecting ectopic pregnancy, the life-threatening situation in which the baby is implanted in the mother's Fallopian tubes instead of in the uterus
  • Determining whether there is an appropriate amount of amniotic fluid cushioning the baby
  • Monitoring the baby during specialized procedures - ultrasound has been helpful in seeing and avoiding the baby during amniocentesis (sampling of the amniotic fluid with a needle for genetic testing). Years ago, doctors use to perform this procedure blindly; however, with accompanying use of ultrasound, the risks of this procedure have dropped dramatically
  • Seeing tumors of the ovary and breast
