Having a baby is one of the most unforgettable experiences that life has to offer. However, we understand that the happiness and excitement of pregnancy can be marred by feelings of anxiety and stress. With this in mind, our highly experienced obstetricians and midwives work collaboratively to provide you with the very best in maternity care. With the support of the latest technology in maternal and fetal monitoring, you will feel safe and supported throughout your pregnancy, childbirth and post-natal recovery.
Whether or not children are your goal, we offer comprehensive gynecological and reproductive healthcare counseling and treatment. Should you require surgery, it is reassuring to know, that the majority of our gynecological procedures are performed through a laparoscope (keyhole surgery) which means minimal scarring and same day discharge. The perfect solution for the active women of Dubai!
As you lie on an exam table, a sonographer coats your belly with a slick – and possibly cold — gel. Next, he moves a transducer, a hand-held device shaped like a microphone, over your belly. You can see the resulting images on a nearby computer screen.
The transducer emits inaudible sound waves, which fan out as they travel through your abdomen. When they hit dense structures like the fetus and the wall of your uterus, the sound waves bounce back to the transducer and are translated into a visual image by the computer.
Don’t get your hopes up too much about this first, fleeting look at your baby. The black-and-white image you see on the computer screen is grainy, shadowy, and may look more like a test pattern than a baby-to-be. Your sonographer will walk you through what you’re seeing by pointing out the fetus’ developing heart, limbs, and head.
