The team of neonatologists at Paras Bliss Hospital, Panchkula – A specialized mother and child care center – were able to save the life of a premature baby boy born to a 59 yr old woman through IVF. Banaksha hailing from Shimla was able to conceive through IVF (In-vitro fertilization). Due to the old age of the expecting mother, the pregnancy was high risk and was associated with hypothyroidism, diabetes and chronic hypertension. Along with the primary issues, there was also a risk of having a premature delivery. During pregnancy, the diabetes complication became so chronic that Banaksha had to take insulin treatment.
Post a high-risk premature delivery, Banaksha delivered a baby boy weighing 1.5 kg. The health of the baby was compromised and the baby was suffering from breathing difficulties and infection. The family decided to consult a super specialty hospital for neonatology care. Banaksha and her husband chose to come to Paras Bliss Hospital Panchkula which has level III Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and a team of neonatologists of national and international repute.
The 32 weeks premature baby was transported with exceptional care to the high-density level III NICU. Post-arrival the baby was treated for pulmonary complications, breathing issues, infection in the lungs. Apart from intensive care support, the baby was provided IV antibiotics to fight the infection.
The team of neonatologists also provided supportive feeding to the baby with the help of an orogastric tube. Post 2 weeks of being fed through the artificial route, the baby started on spoon feeds – Banaksha. The neonatologists also provided the baby with phototherapy for jaundice.
Neonatologists and Gynecologists supported the couple with Kangaroo care to heal the baby. Through the skin to skin contact, Banaksha used to sit 6-8 hours in the position to provide her son warm in KMC to grow. At times the contribution was also made by the father. After 3 weeks of intensive care support, the baby had started taking food orally and had recovered from jaundice.
Banaksha shares “The joy of becoming a mother is an experience that cannot be described in words. However, my joy and happiness were protected by the able doctors of Paras Bliss. We are so blessed and thankful to the entire team that we have named our son – Anmol Paras. This is our tribute to the dedicated and tireless efforts of the doctors who ensured that our son is healthy.”
