The journey to motherhood is divine and gratifying. They say “A mother is born when a child is born”. But that is not completely true. You are a mother the day you conceive and not on the day you deliver. You are already nurturing your baby & preparing yourself mentally, physically, psychologically & biologically to take care of the new life inside your womb. We as mothers are anxious about what these 9 months will unfold for us. Some mommies-to-be are fortunate to have a normal, smooth & safe pregnancy. However, some may experience complications like developing gestational diabetes, high or low blood pressure or common but severe symptoms like persistent nausea and vomiting. As motherhood comes with a lot of responsibilities, it is important that your family, friends & doctors are very supportive and you choose the Best Maternity Hospital & Gynecologist to cruise through your pregnancy smoothly. So, how is delivery at a Specialized Children’s Hospital vs a Multi-Specialty Hospital.
I recollect visiting my relative at one of the multi-specialty hospitals few months back. As I was waiting the visitor’s lobby, I noticed a 3-year old boy pleading to his mom to leave the place. I wondered, why was he so restless? He looked healthy & they too were perhaps waiting to see their relative or friend. I drew closer & offered a chocolate, but that didn’t help much either. He looked at his mom for approval & gave a faint smile, said thank you Aunty. Surprisingly, he didn’t open it immediately. He kept tugging his mom’s dupatta and beseeched to leave. I realized that it was the place that made him uncomfortable. And why not? The odour, the ambience, the hostile & busy staff, worried people frantically moving from one floor to another to either make payment, meet a consultant or get medical tests and scans. Clearly not what a toddler enjoys seeing.
Décor & Ambience
Children love bright-coloured décor & furnishing, friendly staff & doctors, a play room and an ambience that is cordial & soothing. The hues & themes used in a surrounding influences human behavior & better recovery by relating & enhancing the body, mind & soul. And that’s exactly what a Children Specialty Hospital will offer. State-Of-The-Art facilities & décor that pleases the eye & relaxes the mind.
