Pregnancy care or Antenatal Care

Aim- To have a healthy mother and healthy baby!

Pregnancy care entails providing good care to expectant mothers before, during (prenatal care), and after birth (postpartum care). It involves providing education and treatment for ensuring the healthy growth of the baby as well as the mother. It includes mainly-

Regular Antenatal check ups

Pregnancy and giving birth to a baby are natural processes going on all the time all over the globe. Regular check-ups are required to detect comorbidities like Gestational Diabetes, High Blood pressure, Thyroid disorders etc or complications early and treat them in time. Pregnancy is a very crucial period in the life of the expectant mother. Therefore, we assure you that you will be in the best hands during this period. We will take care of all your issues to lend you the best experience. Once you visit your gynecologist for the first time, your baseline weight, blood pressure, height etc will be recorded and your detailed examination and few basic tests will be ordered. After that , your further visits will be scheduled as follows-

  • Once in a month for first six months of pregnancy.
  • Twice a month during the seventh and eighth months of pregnancy.
  • Once in a week during your ninth month of pregnancy.
  • Additionally, during these visits your doctor will assess your as well as your baby’s health by conducting checkups for the following:
    • Weight and blood pressure.
    • Monitoring fetal heart rate and growth and well-being of fetus.
    • Conducting blood test for detecting HIV, anemia and Rh factor, blood sugar level etc.
    • Discussing special diet and exercise requirements.

Don’ts of Pregnancy-

  • Avoid lifting heavy objects.
  • Do not take any medicine without consulting your doctor.
  • Avoid smoking and alcohol.
  • Avoid travelling especially in first three months and last months of pregnancy.

High-Risk Pregnancy

Most important aim of regular Antenatal checkups is to identify high risk pregnancies and monitor them so that comorbidities and complications can be prevented both, in mother and baby. So, for safe Motherhood identification of high risk pregnancies is very important. Following are the risk factors for high risk pregnancy-

  • Recurrent Miscarriages
  • Diabetes
  • Negative Rh blood group
  • Thyroid disorders 
  • Bleeding in pregnancy
  • High blood pressure
  • Obesity
  • Kidney disease
  • Autoimmune diseases
  • Pregnancy associated with HIV/AIDS
  • Preterm changes in the cervix

Vaccination during pregnancy

Tetanus, flu, hepatitis B, and whooping cough are some of the essential vaccines during pregnancy.


Antenatal scans or Pregnancy Scans

Ultra-sonography is performed to know the growth and congenital anomaly in an unborn baby growing in the womb of a pregnant woman. Till the date, research has shown that Ultra-sonography is completely safe for fetus. But it should not be done unnecessarily. Following types of Ultra-sonography are performed during pregnancy –

Early scan – between 7 to 9 weeks. Following things can be seen

  • For dating the pregnancy.
  • If heartbeat is started or not.
  • For multiple pregnancy.
  • If there is ectopic pregnancy.

Level 1 sonography or NT scan-

Done between 11 to 13.6 weeks.This scan is important for detecting early congenital defects and for down syndrome screening.

Level 2 sonography or target scan –

Done between 18 to 22 weeks. Maximum congenital defects can be detected in this scan.

Growth scan –

This is done between 32-36 weeks to know the growth and the well being of the baby along with the amount of liquor amount, weight of the baby.

Doppler study-

This study is also done by sonography machine. In this study, the blood vessels of fetus are evaluated. This study of blood vessels plays an important role in high risk cases like high blood pressure, gestational diabetes, intrauterine growth retardation etc. to know the well-being of the fetus and the timing of delivery.


Baby Birth or Delivery

Here comes the moment you have been waiting for!! Giving birth to a child is a challenging process and sometimes becomes complicated.

Types of Delivery

Normal vaginal Delivery

Vaginal delivery is the birth of offspring or babies in humans through the vagina (also called the “birth canal”). It is the natural method of birth for all mammals. It basically constitutes three stages of labor;

  • The shortening and cervical dilatation.
  • Gradual descent and birth of the baby.
  • Delivery or expulsion of placenta.

Painless Normal Vaginal Delivery

Painless delivery refers to the use of an epidural injection which is given by an anaesthesiologist for pain relief during labour. It is injected in the lower back, and a very thin plastic tube is placed through which drugs are released around the spinal cord.

Cesarean Delivery

Cesarean delivery, also known as C-section delivery is a surgical procedure in which the infant is delivered by making an incision in the mother’s uterus and abdomen rather than by achieving the delivery through the vagina.


Baby Care

Birth is a major challenge to the newborn to negotiate intrauterine to extrauterine life successfully. The transition from intrauterine to extrauterine life is a dramatic one and demands considerable and effective physiological alterations by the baby in order to ensure survival. This immediate care time is crucial to the babies for subsequent well-being and adaptation. Skilled care during labor and childbirth with prompt management of complications alone can prevent about 50% of newborn complications. Continuation of adequate newborn care in the postnatal period can prevent 75% of current newborn deaths.

The essential newborn protocol is a series of time bound and chronologically ordered care that a baby receives at birth, and it has standardized effective procedural steps: dry and stimulate, evaluate breathing, cord care, keep the newborn warm, initiate breastfeeding within the first one hour, administer eye drops/eye ointment to prevent eye infection, administer vitamin K intramuscularly, place the newborn’s identification bands, weigh the newborn when it is stable and warm, and record all observations and treatment provided. Under expert guidance of Dr Hema Jajoo, you will see your newborn bloom like a flower.

Breast feeding

Bottle feed fills the belly but breastfeeding fulfils the soul

Breastfeeding is the best source of nutrition for your baby. It plays an important role in the development and well being of your newborn. For the first six months, your breast milk serves as a perfect nutrition for your baby.

Usually, you can start breastfeeding your baby immediately after birth. This helps your uterus to contract well and also help in early milk secretion. The initial breast milk is referred to as colostrum which is thick and yellowish in color. It is full of proteins and antibodies which protects your baby from certain infections and is a good source of nutrition too.

Benefits of Breast feeding

  1. Perfect nutrition for the newborn.
  2. First milk also known as colostrum  for first 2 to 3 days also known as first vaccination, ensures  protection against diseases like cold, cough, fever, diarrhea eye.
  3. Ensures bonding between  mother and baby which gives baby sense of security and prevents from psychological  problems in later life.
  4. Protects mother from breast cancer.
  5. Gives mothers a good factor by realizing oxytocin hormone.
  6. Helps mother in reducing weight.
  7. Helps mother’s  uterus to come back to prepregnancy state.
