Even the decision to do a caesarean is taken only in consultation with the mother and her partner. Emergency ambulance facilities for patients. All deliveries are attended by a neonatologist, ensuring that the baby receives good care from the start itself. The NICU (second level) facility is excellent, this enables us to manage high risk cases very nicely. Even very premature babies have an excellent survival rate.
