Our specialised team of neurologists, paediatricians, obstetricians and other medical staffs are available round the clock to make sure that no complications arise keeping both the baby and the mother absolutely safe.

Risks that we take care of

  • There might be an increase in the frequency of the seizure most often during the first or the third trimester which is effectively taken care of by our team.
  • We take care of almost all the factors that are suggested as possible triggers of the seizures which include changes in the hormone, stress, water and sodium retention and the decreasing blood levels of anti-epileptic medications.
  • We clearly understand that epilepsy during pregnancy and childbirth can result in injury problems for both the baby and the mother, we try our level best to keep the seizures under control. The seizures at this point of time cause the increased risk of premature labour, lowering the heart rate of the foetus and miscarriages. But you need not worry since our hospital is equipped with the best team and the best infrastructure to take good care of everything.

We also have an obstetrician who particularly specialises in high-risk labour that might occur in the epileptic mothers to make sure that both the mother as well as the baby is safe.
