VHS – ABHIMANYU BLOCK – MATERNITY AND CHILD HEALTH SERVICES
The Obstetrics and Gynaecology – MCS Department was started in 1990 with assistance from the Indian Population Project (IPP). It has a cardiotochograph and foetal Doppler which has helped in the more efficient monitoring of women in labour. Specialised minimally invasive laparoscopic surgeries have been introduced for gynaecological patients on a regular basis. With the help of the Ultrasound Department, procedures such as ultrasound guided aspiration of ovarian cysts, removal of IUCD, etc., are also being done.

This is a baby-friendly initiative hospital, and all mothers are being counselled and encouraged to practice breast feeding which is very essential for the health of the baby. Regular post-partum check-ups are being conducted and family planning measures are provided in accordance with the Government of India guidelines. Facilities such as laproscopic sterilization, MTP facilities are available for patients who opt for it.

Infertility Clinic: Infertility Clinic was started during the year 2015-16. Dr. Sathya Balasubramanyam, an honorary consultant, heads the department and is a qualified infertility specialist. Intra-Uterine Insemination (IUI) is provided at a very low cost. We hope to establish a full-fledged fertility unit to help childless couples from all the strata of the society.
