Desun Hospital celebrated Maternal Health Awareness Day with a compelling discussion on “Empowering Maternal Awareness.” The session featured insights from two distinguished gynecologists, Dr. Ayan Mukhopadhyay, Senior Consultant & Head of Obstetrics, Gynaecology & Gynae-Oncology at Desun Hospital, Kolkata, and Dr. Aparupa Ghosh, Consultant Obstetrics & Gynaecology.
Dr. Aparupa Ghosh emphasized the increasing awareness among women, leading to a better understanding of various health issues. She highlighted the prevalence of conditions such as polycystic ovary syndrome and cysts among young girls, attributing these trends to lifestyle changes. Additionally, Dr. Ghosh discussed the rising incidence of diseases like fibroid uterus, breast cancer, and cervix cancer, stressing the importance of early detection through increased awareness. She noted that many women often present in later stages of these conditions, and early diagnosis can significantly improve treatment outcomes.
During the discussion, Dr. Ghosh also addressed maternal health during pregnancy, highlighting potential complications such as structural fetal problems, lung diseases, and depression. She underscored the significance of proactive medical attention during pregnancy to ensure the well-being of both mother and child.
Dr. Ayan Mukhopadhyay, Senior Consultant & Head of Obstetrics, Gynaecology, echoed the importance of regular check-ups during pregnancy. He emphasized that while pregnancy is not a disease, it requires vigilant medical monitoring to identify potential complications. Dr. Mukhopadhyay stated that the majority of women can deliver safely, but a proportion may face complications, making early diagnosis crucial for effective treatment. The primary objective, he noted, is to diagnose any potential issues at an early stage to enhance the chances of successful intervention and cure.
Desun Hospital remains committed to promoting maternal health awareness and providing comprehensive care to women at every stage of life. The discussions led by Dr. Ayan Mukhopadhyay and Dr. Aparupa Ghosh serve as a testament to the hospital’s dedication to proactive healthcare practices.
