Normal birth

The duration of birth is individual and varies among women. When a woman is giving birth for the first time, it may take 10-12 hours; next deliveries  are usually shorter - usually 7-9 hours. 

The main signs that birth starts are the rupture of the membranes with leakage of amniotic fluid (“the waters break”) and/or the onset of regular uterine contractions at 3-5 minute intervals. 

These contractions are very different from the so called preparatory ones, which do not occur at regular intervals. The latter can appear days and even weeks before the actual birth and are not so painful. 

The signs of the initiating birth process can appear simultaneously or independently.

In both cases the pregnant woman should consult the doctor.

When admitted in “Maichin Dom” the laboring woman is brought to the Pre-delivery room where she is under constant observation by a doctor and a midwife until the cervix is fully dilated.

The fetal heartbeats and the uterine contractions of the mother are constantly monitored with modern cardiotocograph equipment.

The threshold for pain in every laboring woman is different. If the patient wishes, she may get an epidural anesthesia, that is given by an anesthesiologist.

As a rule births are controlled by an ob-gyn doctor together with a team including an anesthesiologist, a pediatrician-neonatologist and a midwife.

After delivery the parturient remains in the Labor and Delivery Department under active observation for two hours. Only after that she is transferred to the maternity ward.

The minimum hospital stay for mothers who have had a normal vaginal delivery  is 72 hours.

Caesarian birth

his type of surgery is performed when advised by a doctor. The Caesarean section (C-section) is an abdominal operation in which the fetus is taken out through an incision of the abdomen and the uterus. C-section can be elective (“planned”) or may be performed as an emergency operation; both types can be indicated for variety of medical reasons.  

The operation is performed in a special separate OR of the Labor and Delivery Ward of  the University Ob/Gyn Hospital “Maichin Dom”. Special type of spinal anesthesia is applied. Thus the mother is in consciousness and can see the baby immediately after it is born.

After the operation the mother stays at the intensive care sector and is under  active observation of an intensive care midwife, ob/gyn doctor and  anesthesiologist.

The newborn baby is taken care of by a pediatrician/neonatologist and the environment is one that helps the adaptation of the child. After the intensive care period the mother is transferred to a postnatal ward. A team of a pediatrician and a midwife takes care of the baby during the entire hospital stay. They examine the newborn daily and observe its development.
