Here at Kings College Hospital in Dubai, our Obstetrics Clinic is fortunate to have a group of highly experienced midwives with over 30 years’ experience between them.
Our focus is on “Women-centred care” a term used to describe a philosophy of maternity care that promotes a holistic approach by recognizing each woman’s social, emotional, physical, spiritual and cultural needs The expectations and context are defined by the woman herself, and as a team, the midwives support the mother to make the right choice for her and her baby.
The Midwives provide the mother and family with individualized education, counseling, and prenatal care, continuous hands-on assistance during labor and delivery, and postpartum support.
Some of the Services that our Midwives provide at the hospital includes:
The shared care model of antenatal care: This is where the Midwives can see and support mother during the antenatal period with oversight from the Obstetrician.
This includes: Initial introduction to the service and what to expect during the antenatal period. Being able to be available to answer any queries that the woman may have.
Antenatal Classes: These classes are provided for mum and dad/partner and focuses on the key periods of pregnancy: antenatal, intrapartum and postnatal periods. These classes are interactive and an opportunity for expectant parents to ask questions and receive pertinent information on key stages in the pregnancy.
Inpatient Care: The Midwife is part of the Multidisciplinary team that will support you during your admission. Her role is key is coordinating your admission and navigating you and your loved ones through the admission and birth process and postnatally once your baby is born.
- Well mum and baby clinic: we recognize the importance of mums having access to professionals and support. This complementary clinic is run by one of our Senior Midwives and Senior Pediatric nurses. The aim is to be a point of reference for mums on discharge, as support and a source of information to guide mums in the postnatal period.
