Udupi, October 08, 2020: Dr. TMA Pai Hospital, Udupi, today announced that it has reached a significant milestone of conducting successful deliveries of pregnant women suffering from COVID-19. The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology has conducted 50 deliveries from 27 May to 03 October 2020 with the 50th delivery taking place on 3rd October 2020. 


With the recent studies showing the risk of COVID-19 infections in newborn babies, the hospital took stringent measures to make sure that the mother and baby are healthy and are COVID free. Since COVID-19 took over the entire world, the hospital has helped deliver 50 perfectly healthy babies without any complications.


Speaking about the same, Dr Shashikala K Bhat, Professor of Obstetrics & Gynaecology, said, “All the deliveries were uneventful. New-born babies were looked after by Department of Pediatrics. Mothers and new-born babies were given special care in separate sections to ensure the safety of the newborn. We also made sure that the patients do not face any COVID-19 complications that can potentially impact the health of the mother and the child.”


Sharing his thoughts, Dr Shashikiran Umakanth, Medical Superintendent, Dr TMA Pai Hospital Udupi said, “These COVID times need additional efforts when it comes to ensuring that the mother and the child are safe. The doctors and the staff have conducted all deliveries and surgeries with strict infection control precautions and patient care protocols. All patients were evaluated thoroughly according to COVID-19 protocols. With the active support of the Udupi District administration and Govt of Karnataka, we have dedicated Dr TMA Pai Hospital, Udupi to treat all positive COVID-19 patients.”
