Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Debrecen


The Baby and Baby Clinic at the University of Debrecen Medical and Health Center received the title baby-friendly for the first time 18 years ago in Europe. We continue to accept the obligations associated with this company. (Let's look at February 2009 status.)

- Our clinic's living room was built twenty-six years ago according to the requirements of that time. We are well aware that despite the excitement, time has passed in the middle of the topic dr. Professor Clinical Director, Zoltá Tуth. - Here, too, we look for generous sponsors, because without any outside source of money, it seems we still have to accept a home that is only partially homely.

The strength of the clinic is very obvious in terms of maternal, fetal, and neonatal safety, with the utmost care, as evidenced by the numbers. At home, well above the average, the low birth weight of premature babies is high. Even newborns weighing less than 500 grams can save more than half of them, while the national average is only 12 percent. The small weights of between 500 and 750 grams have a distance of 97%, and the birth weights of between 750 and 1000 grams are up to 99 percent. The professor also learns what makes a difference.
- Our attitude, professional knowledge and technical equipment ensure safety. Our principle is that the fetus should be "in utero", so we always try to deliver the baby, not the premature baby, thus increasing the life of the little baby. The Debrecen Clinic also operates the only neonatal Department of Neonatology in the country, and also has premature baby rooming, which is why the mother is breastfeeding more.
It seems that small children also consider safety to be more important, as the number of births stagnates in the country, we can redefine the principles of family-centered birth. The father loves to see his parents, but there is no obstacle for his mother or girlfriend to leave the baby.

In the living room, the beds of a pregnant woman are separated by a glass wall and a curtain. Move over the end of the butter or, if you can, the young woman goes to the place where the baby is. This is where your baby can be separated by your partner, and even the glassy one is only separated by glass. Newborn babies are immediately breastfed, and everyone in the baby ward knows how to breast-feed their baby at any time.
In the middle of the shift, there are three women who help me. At any time of the day, it is possible to provide analgesia, and it is recommended that epidural anesthesia is recommended, in particular, so that the mother is not bound to the end. A little care is taken to keep the examination equipment warm in the bedroom.Facts, figures
