Dubai, UAE: Latest World Bank Indicator figures show that there are just under 98,500 births each year across the UAE, and that almost a third are now performed by Caesarean section.
Although often a routine and relatively painless procedure, new mothers can experience varying degrees of pain following the operation. There is also a risk of bleeding, injury and damage to other organs.
Expatriates in the UAE now account for more than 85 per cent of the population, and naturally, living away from home, are less likely to have extended family on hand during such serious life events.
Healthcare MENA , which treats more than one million patients per year, has recently launched Dubai-based Beverly Hills Home Healthcare to provide high quality concierge home healthcare services in the UAE.
Experienced, DHA-registered nurses will visit mother and baby at home, providing additional step-by-step help and guidance throughout each trimester of pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal care. Expectant and new mums will also receive services such as nutritional advice, medication management, assistance with hospital appointments, plus valuable support in the absence of family members.
Ravi Dhir, CEO of Healthcare MENA , explained: "Our mission is to provide the highest quality care to all our patients. Pregnancy, childbirth or undergoing surgery can be difficult without additional support, especially for expats. Apart from maximising the chances of a smooth and speedy recovery, our services are aimed at providing respite for primary caregivers and companionship for our patients."
Additionally, Beverly Hills Home Healthcare provides physical therapy, occupational therapy, speech therapy, elderly care and medical laboratory services. Emergency doctors are available on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
