On the Don, in the regional perinatal center, the five thousandth child was born this year, the official portal of the regional government reports.
12 years ago, the regional health care system was replenished with a perinatal center. It provides qualified assistance to women during pregnancy, childbirth and the postpartum period, as well as highly professional neonatal care for newborns.
Over the years of work in this medical institution, almost 50 thousand births took place, more than 53 thousand children were born, of which more than three thousand twins and 62 triplets.
The specialists of the center are constantly working with difficult childbirth and fetal pathology. More than nine thousand children were born here prematurely. More than 300 newborns born weighing 500 to 999 grams and 1100 newborns born weighing 1000 to 1500 grams have been saved.
So, for example, this year, doctors managed to save and leave a boy born with a body weight of 770 grams, who was treated in a perinatal center for about five months.
But the main purpose of the center is the possible prolongation of pregnancy to full term in patients with complications.
