Abu Dhabi hospital has its first water birth

ABU DHABI, July 2, 2019

The relaxing effect of water during childbirth is attracting water births among local residents and a couple in Abu Dhabi recently opted to give birth in the tranquil environment of a water birthing pool recently at Burjeel Hospital.  

The attending obstetrician Dr Sausan AbdulRahman, consultant - Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Burjeel Hospital helped in making the experience fulfilling for the parents.

“We find that our patients have a more relaxed, pain free and fulfilling birthing experience and feel more in control, especially that they can be fully mobile and no need to take pain medications by any route, also the feeling of lightness in weight as water is carrying the mother during the labouring process. We are delighted that the Mansoori family had a positive and comfortable birthing experience with our team of expertise,” Dr Sausan AbdulRahman said.

Dr Bashier Dawlatly, consultant – Obstetrics and Gynaecology & head of Department, said, “Labouring in water helps the body release less of the stress hormones and more of the labour hormone, oxytocin, hence stimulating labour contractions to be strong and more regular.”

The serene atmosphere of Burjeel Hospital has a well-qualified team of experts with clinical acumen dedicated to offer the best service to the newborns and state-of-the-art infrastructure equipped to cater to the most discerning patients and handle any neonatal condition faced during birth.

With the many benefits associated with water births and with the team at Burjeel Hospital placing clinical excellence as top priority in the Obstetrics & Gynaecology Department, more expectant mothers in the UAE now have a choice to use an alternative way to give birth. – TradeArabia News Service
