The best way to approach pregnancy, labour, delivery, and the postpartum period is to be well read and informed. If you are planning to become pregnant, see your doctor for a preconception care visit. As soon as you suspect you are pregnant call your doctor, get regular prenatal care, make sure you are well informed when making decisions and follow a healthy lifestyle.

The department treats high-risk pregnancy cases at par with international clinical norms to manage complications such as -

- Pre-existing health conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, etc.
In order to avoid any such unforeseen complications, we at Bhagirathi Neotia Woman & Child Care Centre advise you to follow prenatal care with your chosen doctor.
Prenatal visits allow the doctor to closely watch your health and your baby's progress. During these visits, you will undergo examination and the growth of the baby will be monitored. The check-up includes a detailed health history, a physical exam (as may be required), investigations and calculation of expected date of delivery. These prenatal visits will provide a good chance to discuss any questions or concerns or apprehensions and learn more about your pregnancy.

Department of Laparoscopic Surgery
The department of Laparoscopic Surgery treats all forms of gynaecological disorders that a woman may face at any stage of her life.
Laparoscopy is a procedure to look inside your abdomen by using a laparoscope. A laparoscope is like a thin telescope with a light source. It is used to light up and magnify the structures inside the abdomen. A laparoscope is passed into the abdomen through a small incision (cut) in the skin.
Frequently, problems that cannot be discovered by external physical examination can be discovered by Laparoscopy and Hysteroscopy, which provide a direct look into the pelvic organs. These procedures are recommended for both diagnostic (looking into) and operative (looking and treating) purposes.
Diagnostic Laparoscopy is suggested to look at the outside of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and internal pelvic area.
Diagnostic Hysteroscopy is used to look inside the uterine cavity. If an abnormal condition is detected during the diagnostic procedure, operative Laparoscopy or Hysteroscopy can be performed, to correct it and avoid a second surgery.
Diagnostic Laparoscopy helps surgeons diagnose many gynaecological problems including endometriosis, uterine fibroids and other structural abnormalities, ovarian cysts, adhesions and ectopic pregnancy.
Operative Laparoscopy helps in the removal of adhesions from around the fallopian tubes and ovaries, opening blocked tubes, removing ovarian cysts and treating ectopic pregnancy. Endometriosis can also be removed or ablated from the outside of the ovaries, uterus and the peritoneum. Operative Laparoscopy can also be used to remove diseased ovaries and can assist in the performance of Hysterectomy.
Diagnostic Hysteroscopy is a useful procedure to evaluate women with infertility, recurrent miscarriage and abnormal uterine bleeding. Diagnostic Hysteroscopy is used to examine the uterine cavity and is helpful in diagnosing abnormal uterine conditions such as fibroids, scarring, polyps and congenital malformations.
Some common conditions that can be seen by Laparoscopy include -
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Ovarian cysts
- Uterine fibroids/polyps
In general, compared to traditional surgery, with Laparoscopic surgery there is usually
- Less pain following the procedure
- Less risk of complications
- A shorter hospital stay
- A quicker recovery
- A much smaller scar
