THE chills of winter did not stop moms-to-be from joining the KwaDukuza Private Hospital (KPH) for its first KPH Maternity Open Day recently.

Specialist obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr M. Naicker, specialist paediatrician Dr S. Chetty and anaesthetist Dr M. Ramnarain, together with physiotherapist Shanae Govender of Mommy Wellness Ballito, were special guests on the day.

The day started with Govender demonstrating interactive pregnancy exercises for the pregnant women and their partners, which had the crowd getting active.

Thereafter, Dr Naicker had a question and answer session with the attendees, followed by an informative talk by Dr Chetty based on the paediatrician’s role in child birth and neonatal jaundice, a condition which affects 60% of new born babies.

Lastly, a pain management discussion was held by Dr Ramnarain.

The enlightening maternity open day concluded with a tour of the maternity and paediatric wards, refreshments and fun games with prizes for the guests.

“KwaDukuza Private Hospital would like to thank our specialists Dr M. Naicker, Dr S. Chetty, Dr M. Ramnarain, Shanae Govender and all our moms and dads for joining us on this informative maternity open day. We look forward to delivering all your little ones soon,” said the KPH team.
