All delivery rooms in our hospital are single-person TDL (labor-delivery-pohusa) rooms. There are 57 TDL rooms, all of which are in the form of an LDRP unit (pain, delivery, recovery, puerperium) of at least 23 m2, with toilet and bathroom, seat that can be a companion bed and telelevision. Water birth is also available in 3 of our TDL rooms. All TDL rooms have arrangements for stabilization and resuscitation procedures for the baby. All operations in our TDL service are carried out by a large team of 5 experts and 20 assistants under the supervision of 2 clinic chiefs. In our TDL rooms, a midwife is employed for each pregnant woman. Labor monitoring of the pregnant woman, delivery and post partum follow-up for at least two hours after delivery are performed in single-person TDL rooms. In addition, companions are accepted for every eligible patient. In these rooms, the expectant mother can stay together with her companion in an environment similar to a home environment that respects the privacy of the mother. They can watch TV, exercise with a pilates ball, take a shower, and fulfill their religious duties. During the pain process, our mothers are given a trawah diet consisting of soup, compote, yogurt, and pudding, and they are not left without food or water. Breathing techniques, massage, walking in vertical position, hydrotherapy, dance accompanied with music are used to relieve the pain of labor. Appropriate pregnant women are delivered painlessly with epidural anesthesia. After the birth begins, our expectant mother gives birth in her own room, in her bed that turns into a delivery table. Our hospital is a mother and baby friendly hospital. Enema, artificial pain and episiotomy (perineal incision during delivery) and cesarean section are not applied to the mother unless there is medical justification. In our hospital, the umbilical cord is clamped late in deliveries and as soon as the baby is born, it is placed on the mother’s lap to ensure early skin contact. During this first 1-hour contact, which is golden in terms of mother-baby attachment, the first breastfeeding training is also provided.
In case of an undesirable situation in terms of mother and baby life during the normal course of birth, cesarean operation is life-saving and is intervened immediately for 15 minutes at the latest with professional staff and equipment. Caesarean operating theaters, where immediate intervention can be performed in case of emergency cesarean need, are located very close to TDL rooms. Our puerperas are followed for at least 24 hours after normal delivery and at least 48 hours after cesarean section. Trainings are given on breast milk and breastfeeding, personal hygiene episio care, signs of danger to be consulted to the health institution in terms of mother and baby health, reproductive health, control and vaccination times of the baby. The first examination of the baby by the newborn doctor is carried out in the same room. Thus, mother and baby always stay in the same room, never separate from each other. Hepatitis B Vaccine, Vitamin K, Hearing Screening and Congenital Heart Disease Screening are given to all babies at birth. Babies’ first heel test blood is collected for diseases (phenylketonuria, biotinidase deficiency and hypothyroidism) in the national neonatal screening program.

Who can be a candidate?
Those with an uncomplicated course of pregnancy between 370/7 and 416/7 weeks may be candidates. It may be suitable for pregnancies with a normal birth, singleton and head presentation.
Who is not suitable?
In the course of pregnancy, the presence of a risky situation in the mother or baby is not suitable for postterm pregnancies and multiple pregnancies.
Vaginal Delivery After Caesarian (VBAC)
Among the patients who have given birth by cesarean once before, those who want normal birth in their current pregnancy are evaluated by the specialist doctor. A vaginal delivery plan can be made for those who meet the appropriate criteria after the evaluation.
Who can be a candidate?
Women who had a cesarean section with a transverse uterine incision in their previous pregnancy and did not have other uterine incisions may be candidates for vaginal delivery. Pregnant women who have cesarean section due to fetal distress or breech presentation and whose hip bone structure is suitable for vaginal delivery may have a chance to have vaginal delivery in their current pregnancy. The chances of a vaginal delivery are higher for those who spontaneously start labor pains. Having a vaginal birth before, especially having a vaginal delivery after cesarean increases the chance of success.
Who is not suitable ?
Those who had a vacuum inserted in their previous birth, had uterine rupture, the previous cesarean incision had a classical incision (vertical incision in the upper part of the uterus) or a T-incision, the reason for the previous cesarean was cephalopelvic incompatibility (incompatibility between the baby and the bone roof), and those with a period of less than 19 months between two births VBAC is not appropriate.
Prematural Retinopathy Diagnosis And Treatment Center
Our hospital is Premature Retinopathy Diagnosis and Treatment Center. ROP is one of the most common causes of blindness in childhood. Pregnancy age and low birth weight are among the most important risk factors. Although the ROP rate is very high in babies born before 27 weeks of gestation, it is very rare after 32 weeks. Again, as the birth weight of the baby decreases, the possibility of ROP increases. Oxygen therapy, which should be applied in an incubator to babies born prematurely and with low weight, is the most important risk factor in the development of ROP, but is not effective on its own.
In preterm babies, the retina (mesh) layer of the eye has not yet completed its vascular development, and the abnormal vessels that develop when oxygen is insufficient cause changes that can lead to blindness over time. Therefore, babies with low birth weight and / or in an incubator are at risk. Regular retinal examination should be performed for these babies. Statistically, new vessels that develop regress spontaneously by 80%, treatment is only required for 8% of babies.
Sexual Health Clinic
If you avoid postpartum sexual intercourse because of negative thoughts or negative emotions, you can apply to our Sexual Health Polyclinic if this has become a problem between you and your spouse, or if you encounter a problem such as pain in the relationship.
Before starting intercourse for the first time after birth, you can use our hospital’s family planning outpatient clinic to plan the time of your next pregnancy.
