  • Organized parents doctors interactive session where parents shared the challenging journeys of their parenthood and bringing up their preterm babies
  • The event witnessed the launch of the book titled ‘Journey of Prematurity – Parental Guide’

Bangalore, November 18, 2021: To commemorate World Prematurity Day, Aster Women and Children Hospital, Whitefield organized an interactive educational program for parents to raise awareness on preterm birth. The program focused on providing the necessary guidance and answers to the questions of new parents addressing the health issues that could arise due to early births. Over 50 parents took part in the interactive session and shared the challenging journeys of their parenthood and bringing up their preterm babies.

As part of the program, to make a difference in the lives of the newborns and their parents, Aster Women and Children Hospital in association with Himalaya Wellness Company launched a book titled ‘Journey of Prematurity– Parental Guide’. Authored by Dr. Lathiesh Kumar Kambham, Lead Neonatology, Consultant – Paediatrics and Neonatology, Aster Women and Children Hospital, Co-Authored by Dr. Srinivasa Murthy C L, Lead Paediatrics, Consultant – Paediatrics and Neonatology, Aster Women and Children Hospital and edited by Dr. Chetan Ginigeri, Lead Consultant – Paediatrics & Paediatric Intensive Care, Aster Women, and Children Hospital.

The book provides complete guidance to the parents of preterm babies. The comprehensive book aims to revolutionize preterm care for parents as it gives insights into the several concerns related to prematurity that parents usually have. It also provides easy-to-follow information which they can follow to keep a check on their baby’s frequently changing condition and gives insights into the NICU setup, how doctors treat and nurture their little ones, and guidelines to care for the baby post-discharge.

Dr. Lathiesh Kumar Kambham, Lead Neonatology, Consultant – Paediatrics and Neonatology, Aster Women and Children Hospital said: “Concerns about prematurity are not just about the short term. In some cases, complexities can be long-term and can last up to 18 years of age. When talking to doctors, parents usually lose track because of medical terminologies and technical terms. This often makes them distressed and worried as they have a lot of questions when their baby is born prematurely. At times when doctors aren’t available to ease their worries, having a self-guiding book can be of great help.  Hence, with this book, we aim to explain things in a simplified manner to all parents.”

Appropriate care has to be taken during childbirth and in the postnatal and antenatal periods for every mother and baby. Speaking on the need for neonatal care, Dr. Nitish Shetty, Regional Director, Aster Hospitals, Karnataka and Maharashtra Cluster said, “According to the World Health Organisation, every year, an estimated 15 million babies are born preterm. Despite substantial progress made globally, sixty percent of the world’s premature births continue to occur in India, making preterm birth complications, a leading cause of death among children under 5 years of age in the country. Premature babies need advanced neonatal care for them to survive and to survive without a disability, they need to be delivered in a place with advanced neonatal intensive care units (NICUs) that have the expertise to cater to such babies. This requires teamwork, expertise, and the best possible technology to assist with care. With this book, we hope to help parents ease their concerns on coping with having a preterm baby.”

Emphasizing the need for awareness on preterm care, Mr. Shiv Kumar Singh – General Manager, BabyCare Marketing, Himalaya Wellness Company said, “Himalaya understands that babies need special care and we are delighted to be a stakeholder in building this shared vision with such a renowned child specialist for the health and wellness of preterm babies. As the most trusted and recommended baby care brand Himalaya BabyCare is committed to the health and wellness of babies and children. With the launch of this book on World Prematurity Day, we aim to bring attention to the extra care of preterm babies and their families. Besides, as a part of our baby and childcare initiatives, we are soon releasing a 28 videos series on child safety and 11 booklets on childcare.”

Bangalore, 15th November 2021: On the occasion of Children’s Day, Aster Hospitals in India, as a part of Aster Volunteers Global CSR initiative has launched the ‘Second Life- Because Little Lives Matter initiative. The year-long initiative is aimed at supporting the medical treatment of disadvantaged children, where the initial aim is to help treat at least 100 children below the age of 12 years by providing free pediatric surgeries. The initiative extends help to deserving children who are being treated across Aster Hospitals based in 5 States in India.

This includes common childhood surgeries such as appendicitis, intussusception, empyema and paediatric urology surgeries as well as complex clinical surgeries including bone marrow transplant, liver transplants, heart surgeries, etc. Dr. Nitish Shetty, Regional Director, Aster Hospitals, Karnataka and Maharashtra Cluster, Mr. Farhan Yasin, Regional Director, Aster Hospitals – Kerala & Oman Cluster and Mr Devanand KT, Regional CEO, Aster Hospitals – Telangana & Andhra Pradesh Cluster were present at the launch of the campaign in Bangalore, today.

The treatment will be funded by Aster DM Foundation or with the support of philanthropists / NGOs. A criterion has been established by the foundation to identify the eligibility of cases for the program; these will be assessed based on the socio-economic status and BPL category as well as the medical outcome of the child prior to commencement of selection and subsequent treatment. Furthermore, a 24X7 multi-lingual helpline number has been set up at Calicut to manage inquiries, the helpline can be accessed by dialing +91 9633620660.

Speaking on the initiative Dr Azad Moopen, Founder Chairman and Managing Director, Aster DM Healthcare said, “In India, where a significant segment of the population still remains below the poverty line, many families with an ailing child struggle to afford the advanced surgery needed to save the lives of their little ones. In most cases, paediatric organ transplants, bone-marrow transplants, cardiac surgeries or even common surgeries can not only give young children a second shot at a better life but also save an entire family from falling into the depths of despair. While our Aster Hospitals in India, based in the 5 States, have emerged as Centres of Excellence in advanced paediatric care and surgeries and our doctors have been known to set global benchmarks in advanced surgical interventions, we sincerely hope that with this effort, we are able to provide a second chance to young children to live their lives to the fullest and achieve their dreams.”

Dr Nitish Shetty, Regional Director, Aster Hospitals, Karnataka and Maharashtra Cluster added, “The launch of the Second Life Initiative is to structure a change that will eventually have a positive impact on the lives of disadvantaged children from a long-term perspective. We aim to leverage the inherent and individual strengths of several of our hospitals to fulfil and deliver on these clinical interventions. At Aster, it is our motto to bring great healthcare within the reach of all individuals, our highly experienced experts at Aster Hospital’s will be dedicating a minimum of 10% of their man-hours to help these children and give them a well-deserved second chance at life”.
