Prenatal Anesthesia Clinic

For mothers to enjoy a more painless, safe and comfortable delivery, Guangzhou United Family Hospital has a prenatal anesthesia clinic so that mothers can understand and consider whether they need labor analgesia, and whether their physical conditions are suitable for labor analgesia.

Anesthesiologists seek to understand your physical condition in advance by speaking to you about your related medical history, surgical condition, surgical anesthesia history, allergy history and drug administration history.

You can consult and understand the relevant situation of labor analgesia in advance, and be fully prepared psychologically, which can effectively alleviate the tension and anxiety before anesthesia, and is conducive to improving the safety of labor analgesia.

Midwife Clinic

A midwife is a nurse who delivers and cares for mothers independently. They are familiar with every change in the course of labor, and deal with various situations of labor mutation. Therefore, the technical level and operation ability of midwives are related to the safety of mothers and infants. A midwife who has worked for many years has no less experience than a gynecologist and is a great partner in the true sense of maternity care. In developed countries, midwifery services are female-centered, emphasizing that midwives should provide continuous professional medical services to mothers, thereby increasing the natural birth rate, reducing the length of hospital stay during pregnancy, reducing drug analgesia and intrapartum anesthesia, reducing the rate of episiotomy, reducing the rate of neonatal resuscitation, and also increasing maternal satisfaction with the delivery process.

In order to provide more detailed and intimate maternal services for expectant mothers, Guangzhou United Family Hospital has a midwife clinic. Experienced midwives will provide face-to-face guidance about comprehensive, individualized pregnancy and postpartum care to help you eliminate prenatal tension.

Consulting Projects Include:

  1. Pregnancy care and preparation before delivery
  2. Humanized labor support
  3. Effective ways to relieve pain
  4. Helping to plan childbirth
  5. Postpartum nursing consultation
  6. Breastfeeding guidance

Nutrition Clinic

To strengthen nutritional management so as to ensure the safety of mothers and infants during pregnancy and childbirth, the obstetrics department of our hospital has a nutrition clinic. The aim of the clinic is to help pregnant mothers eat a reasonable diet, scientifically control weight during pregnancy, and prevent and reduce the occurrence of nutritional and metabolic diseases during pregnancy. Nutritional evaluation and intervention are carried out regularly for pregnant mothers with nutritional risks during pregnancy, and individualized nutritional monitoring and suggestions are provided.

Breastfeeding Clinic

Breast milk is the best food for babies. We know that breastfeeding is not easy. While promoting the benefits of breastfeeding, it is more important to give professional and meticulous guidance to mothers who want to breastfeed, encourage and support them to master appropriate methods and skills, so make breastfeeding as easy as possible.

Guangzhou United Family Hospital has a breastfeeding clinic, where experienced breast milk consultants provide you with comprehensive, individualized breastfeeding guidance.
