Adapted by most of the developed countries; a team-based approach is one in which consultation driven management is followed. As obstetric services need continuous support and care, consultant driven team-based care increases the chances of normal vaginal delivery, improves the quality of management in case of Obstetric emergencies and reduces complications of pregnancy. We take pride in working as a team which enables us to handle complex deliveries like vacuum delivery, forceps delivery, shoulder dystocia, bleeding following delivery, cesarean section for complicated pregnancy like previous multiple cesarean sections, placenta previa, antepartum haemorrhage and multiple pregnancies (twins and triplets).

The team also comprises many other support services such as nursing staff and physiotherapists who support as well as provide individualized care to each patient in labour. Labour is the most difficult part of pregnancy. To ease the process we have excellent nursing staff and physiotherapists to encourage the expectant mother. We also practise painless delivery in association with our anaesthesia team who are well trained in obstetric anaesthesia. We have a dedicated 24/7 anaesthesia team specially trained in obstetrics like epidural anaesthesia and managing obstetric emergencies.
