Neonatal ICU / Care

Every family hopes that their baby be born healthy and normal, but should your baby need specialized care, our team of expert neonatologists and neonatal nursing staff will provide it. The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) at Meenakshi Maternity is a level III unit. We offer the most advanced care for premature and critically ill newborns.

New parents eagerly look forward to bringing their baby home, so it can be frightening if your newborn needs to be admitted to the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). At first it may seem like a foreign place, but understanding the NICU and what goes on there can help ease your fears and let you better help your baby.

Though the environment in the NICU can be intimidating, consider it as a special care nursery for your baby where our expert neonatologists and neonatal nursing staffs will familiarize you with it so you can participate in the care process.
