During the routine interaction of pregnant patient with their Gynecologist, many things are left out in discussion due to lack of time. That is precisely the reason why ‘Gynecology Department’ of KRIMS Hospital arranged a novel programme on “Pregnant Women – Today Something Different” at KRIMS Hospitals on 28th May 2017 (Sunday).
Gynecologists Dr. Meena Patil, Dr. Yamini Alsi, Dr. Anjali Ramakrishnan, Dr. Swati Sarda were prominently present for the program alongwith Dr. Prajakta Borkar (Physiotherapist) & Ms. Shrutika Sarode (Dietician).
Dr. Prajakta Borkar (Physiotherapist) aptly elaborated about the exercises to be done during pregnancy & its benefit to the pregnant women. The importance of nutrition – what to eat, what not to eat & how many times to eat in a day, was discussed at length by Ms. Shrutika Sarode (Dietician).
Dr. Meena Patil (Gynecologist) took time to advocate the pregnant women about how to keep themselves and their baby calm and quiet. Gynecologists, Dr. Anjali Ramkrishnan and Dr. Yamini Alsi told them about the myths of pregnancy, abortion and the importance of rest, sleep during pregnancy & many other useful tips. They stressed upon an understanding that ‘PREGNANCY’ is not a disease but due care has to be taken by pregnant women during the pregnancy. Dr. Swati Sarda (Gynecologist) satisfied the pregnant women’s queries during the discussion. The importance of storage of ‘Stem Cell’ through the umbilical cord of the baby and it’s utility to the baby and the family in later life, was explained in detail by Ms. Ashwini Bokade.
So it was an interesting and useful Sunday afternoon for Pregnant women who assembled at KRIMS Hospitals, Nagpur.
