Whenever we have any new medical initiative, our thrust is not only on technology and efficient healthcare delivery but also the comfort and emotional support that the patient requires. ‘Momstory’ is a reflection of that. Pregnancy is a beautiful journey of nurturing, it a time to be enjoyed by the new mom as well as her entire family. It is a life-changing experience that needs to be celebrated albeit with proper care. With over 17 years of experience in Mother & Child Care, more than 10000 successful IVF cases, more than 9000 babies delivered & over 5000 infants treated in NICU till date, Sahyadri Hospitals is now upgrading our Mother & Child services with ‘Momstory’ which aims to provide a Customised Birthing experience. While we have the best facilities, doctors, experts, nurses, and support staff, we wanted to add more value and cheer to this journey. And I am proud to inform you that Dr. Puranik and her team have taken in consideration all the minute things that go into the care during pregnancy; right from prenatal advice to admission to taking care of mom as well as relatives to celebrating the arrival of the little one to discharge and further follow-ups and guidance and come out with a beautifully woven nest of the entire gamut of services. The nest is woven not just with medical expertise but also with a lot of love. In a real sense, this is a perfect example of customized care. As a leading chain of hospitals, we are proud to present ‘Mom Story’, another path defining initiative!!
