Maternity: Clínica Alemana’s Protected Natural Childbirth
In recent years, advances have been incorporated that have helped improve the prognosis and quality of life of many patients.
For all mothers seek the best when delivering a baby; for this reason, Clínica Alemana has made available to them all the technological advances and human qualities required for this great event.
Clínica Alemana´s Protected Natural Childbirth provides a natural environment where mums have a more active involvement in their labor, in the manner that is most comfortable for them (vertical or horizontal position).
They can also deliver without the aid of anesthesia, provided that the safety of the process is ensured.
In this regard, Dr. Marcelo González, Head of the Gynecology Department, says that “the goal of the Protected Natural Childbirth is that those patients who decide to opt for a different mode of delivery care may feel at ease, since they will be guided, and receive quality care with the assurance that characterizes our institution”.
In order to further strengthen the attachment bond between mother and child, the center has three Comprehensive Childbirth Care Rooms (SAIP), featuring a warm environment where labor can be managed through music therapy, birthing balls and relaxation therapies, all guided by a medical team assisting throughout this significant process.
Additionally, respect and silence areas have been implemented, where visitors and traffic are restricted, as well as a series of childbirth support tools that make this experience pleasant and special. They include:
• Rings for baby slings
• Diffusers for aromatherapy inside the delivery rooms
• Light dimmers to create warm and respectful environments
• Birthing chairs
• Mats for greater patient comfort during the dilation process
• Kinetic balls and floor screens.
