In Bangladesh Pre & postnatal care is mostly confined to the people of urban areas. And every year huge number of mother & infants die due to lack of medication. To solve this issue especially for the rural community of Nalta & its periphery Nalta Hospital has a special project “Mothr & Infant Program”. These project includes pre & postnatal care, child health & family planning issues.
Nalta hospital provides Pre & Postnatal care to the village people through central hospital & satellite clinics & Maternal Child Health & Family Planning Center. To supports these activities Nalta hospital has well equipped Obstetrics & Gynecology department with specialist lady doctors & skilled staffs. Every year thousands of pregnant mothers get their prenatal & postnatal care from Nalta hospital. To ensure safe motherhood, Nalta Hospital provides Antenatal Checkup (ANC) pathological tests, screening of complicated & high risk cases, delivery and postnatal care. From Nalta Hospital’s experience, it has been found that linkage among ANC, pre-natal care, PNC are very important to address maternal morbidity and mortality.
