LELEKA obstetrics services include:

High-Risk Pregnancy Unit

Birthing Unit

Postnatal Ward

 

All units are equipped with up-to-date specialized medical equipment and devices. Home-like environment is comfortable and convenient not only for the mother and her baby, but also for all family members.


The units provide continuous, around-the-clock patient care by a highly-qualified staff (midwives, obstetricians and gynecologists, anesthesiologists, resuscitators, neonatologists).


Our adult intensive care unit, neonatal intensive care unit and operating rooms, so-called urgent services, provide reliable and effective care. They are located near birthing rooms and allow 24-hour professional emergency medical care depending on the situation.


Five individual birthing rooms with ensuite bathrooms are equipped with delivery transformer beds, cardiotocographies, other necessary medical equipment, tools and devices.

Medical staff guided by the principle of safe motherhood arrange:

1Delivery with a partner. Married couples are invited to attend childbirth education classes at Responsible Parenthood School available at the Maternity Welfare Center and High-Risk Pregnancy Unit and to learn what to expect during labor and childbirth. Couples can also receive consultations of medical staff during their stay in the maternity hospital.


2 A laboring woman is free to choose her own labor and birth position (on the transformer bed, birthing chair, lying on her side, and so on); upright position is welcomed.


3Women with a uterine scar (after previous caesarean delivery) may be able to have a vaginal birth (in the absence of contraindications).


4 Taking a pregnant woman`s wish into account, vaginal breech birth can take place (in the absence of contraindications).


5 Postpartum staff actively supports breastfeeding policy; around-the-clock rooming-in care is provided.
