A newly renovated labour and delivery (L&D) section has been unveiled in an Abu Dhabi hospital to provide advanced maternity healthcare services.

The new facility, at Al Ain Hospital, has six birthing, two triage, two induction and two high-dependence rooms, as well as a dedicated operation theatre for emergency caesarian section.

The L&D section also has a technologically advanced neonatal section equipped with six neonatal resuscitators to handle emergencies, the Abu Dhabi Health Services Company, which operates the hospital, said.

The section also comes with CTG machines that enable continuous electronic fetal monitoring of the baby's heart rate and the mother's labour contractions and iLED cold lights that eliminate patient discomfort, resulting from high-energy surgical lights.
