The debate goes all around the world that the hospitals are doing unnecessary C-Section Deliveries. In India the motive that is attributed to this trend is higher money for the hospital in case of C-Sec Delivery. This argument is completely misplaced as the hospitals do not make more money in case of a C-Sec Delivery. The charges for C-Section are definitely higher than a normal delivery but the costs are also higher. In a C-Sec delivery the operation theatre is used so OT Charges get added to the bill which are almost 15-20 thousand rupees, the fee for the anaesthetist which is around 3-5 thousand also gets added in the case of C-Sec delivery which is not there in a normal delivery. Since the delivery is done through an operation there are more medicines and consumables which are used. The stay of the patient also increases from 2 days to 3 days. All these costs add almost 25-30 thousand to the price. The profit margin for the hospital remains the same whether you undergo a normal delivery or a C-Sec delivery. For busy hospitals the added hospital stay means that for each maternity bed you are able to do only 10 C-Sec Deliveries as compared to 15 Normal Deliveries. The reason for higher number of C-Sec deliveries at the hospitals is that the more complicated cases come to the hospital while the simple cases can be delivered at home by the midwives.
In order to promote more normal deliveries at the hospital we at Brightstar hospital pay a higher fee to the gynaecologist for doing normal delivery as compared to a c-section delivery. The difference between the package for the Normal and C-Section Delivery is also kept minimal so that there is no gain for the hospital in the case of C-Sec Delivery. We educate the pregnant women about the advantages of normal delivery and teach them the techniques for bearing labour pain. The Childbirth classes conducted by our Mother and Child department prepares the pregnant woman for childbirth. Lots of people want their child to be born at a specific time and date due to their belief in astrology. Such cases also require C-Section Delivery. We try to educate people to shun such beliefs and move with modernity. Every child is born with a good destiny and encouraging c-sec deliveries due to such notions is not a part of our ethos. In C-Section delivery the gynaecologist makes an incision just below the navel button and reaches the uterus. Another incision is made on the uterus and the baby is taken out. After this the gynaecologist puts stitches to the incisions made and dresses the wound. The patient needs to rest for a couple of days and painkillers are given intravenously to subside the pain. The patient can go to the washroom from the second day with the help of support from the staff at the hospital.
The Department of Mother and Child at Brightstar Hospital is fully equipped to carry out the most difficult and high risk deliveries with relative ease. The state of art operation theatres backed by highly trained obstetricians, paediatricians and anaesthetists can give you the confidence about the safety to the life of mother and the baby. Our team of gynaecologists and obstetricians have the experience of doing thousands of deliveries. We prefer normal delivery over cesarian section as much as possible and until there is no danger to the health of the mother or the baby we do not advise surgical option. The packages for C-Sec delivery at Brightstar hospital range from Rs. 30,000 for general ward till Rs. 60,000 for Single Room. The charges for the baby for resuscitation and vaccinations are in the range of Rs. 5,000 to 10,000 if everything is fine with the baby. However if the baby needs special care like Phototherapy then there could be some more charges associated with these services. If the mother requires consultation and care from some other specialists or blood transfusion then the charges for these would be extra and not a part of the package. Typically the hospital stay for c-sec delivery is 3 days. Any extra stay due to some kind of complication would be charged extra from the package. We want the birth of your child to be a memorable occasion and go the extra length to make it a reality.
