Newborn babies are not just small adults. If they have a problem that is diagnosed before birth, a neonatologist may get involved during your pregnancy, to plan your baby’s care.
Sometimes babies are born preterm. Important organs such as the heart, lungs, or stomach and their metabolism may not be mature enough to function without special help.
Neonatologists are trained to manage the special needs of these babies. They are also trained to handle the special equipment used for the smallest baby.
Although your pediatrician can solve most health problems of newborns, a Neonatologist is trained specifically to handle the most complex and high-risk situations.
Apollo Cradles provide treatment and support to critically ill premature and full-term babies.
Our Level III NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit) is managed by qualified medical and nursing staff and a Consultant Neonatologist who is in charge. Our goal is to get you and your baby home as soon as it is safe.
When your newborn child has a serious illness, we realize how stressful this can be to the family. Apollo Cradle is committed to family-centered care. We encourage the bond with mother and baby to be maintained to the extent possible and our doctors do everything possible to keep you informed about your baby‘s progress. We offer a comforting environment for you and your family, including support in healing from childbirth and help in breast-feeding your baby.
