Deborah Omotayo Adeyanju, a patient aged 33, a resident of Nigeria, was diagnosed with pregnancy months back, and she is now diagnosed with the possible delivery of the baby which is soon to take place.
The patient got in touch with MediGence by sending an inquiry over the official website to reconfirm whether the delivery of the baby was due or whether it was just mild discomfort and overthinking. She got in touch with MediGence, in hopes of getting options and choices and also to know about the procedure of delivery.
We gave her an entire list of such packages and options, and out of all of them, she chose to go with NMC. So accordingly, we set her with the NMC Hospital, Al Nahda, in Dubai which is one of the highest rated hospitals around the world and is one of the most sought after places for surgery with their world-class doctors and surgeons.
The patient, Ms. Deborah, wanted an urgent requirement to stay for 2 weeks extra, and hence, we contacted the hospital, NMC Hospital, Al Nahda, and our team coordinated with the NMC team to procure a medical visa form the embassy before she flew out, since it was important that she only fly on the basis of the medical visa. A letter was also arranged for her so that her son and her husband could accompany her. All the specifications and the details for the flight and the technicalities that needed to be fulfilled after the landing in Dubai were told to her clearly so that she could carry all the necessary documents, like fit to fly and marriage certificate that would be useful in Dubai.
The appointment with the doctor of the hospital was scheduled on the day of her arrival to Dubai, and the date as recorded was 15th May 2019. The appointment went well, and all the technicalities were fulfilled.
Process – The entire process was said and informed to the patient beforehand. The ideal time of childbirth takes a long amount of time, with mentioned stages being in place. The first stage being of about 12 to 19 hours, the second stage being from 20 minutes to 2 hours, and the final stage being 5 to 30 minutes, giving a maximum total of about 22 hours, approximately. The processes can differ according to the convenience of the woman giving birth. Ideally, vaginal delivery is only preferred.
Everything went smoothly, and the baby was finally delivered on the 22 of May. The surgery and the childbirth went very well, and the patient was then discharged on the next day. She was then supposed to attend two follow-ups for herself and then two more again for the baby afterward.
The birth certificate of the baby was then made and presented to them after the hospital received a notarized marriage certificate of the couple, after which they could issue a travel document for the baby. They left for Nigeria on the 12th of June, and we wish her and her family, including the baby a very healthy, happy life.
