Every year Kangaroo Care delivers hundreds of premature babies, and we see these babies fight from such a young age. The struggle of these babies is the motivation for Kangaroo Care's Premature Babies Foundation. Through this foundation, Kangaroo Care aims to breathe life into the premature babies who pass our door. On 21st November 2018, Kangaroo Care celebrated World Prematurity Day along with the parents of the Kangaroo Care premature babies and inaugurated the Kangaroo Care Premature Babies Foundation. This foundation aims at collating funds to get world class facilities for our premature babies, who need utmost care.

A team effort by Kangaroo Care brought a beautiful baby to this world. The parents came from Hosadurga with many complications. The mother, who was 27 weeks far, had autoimmune disease and had previously gone through nine abortions. After a successful delivery, there were post-surgical complications owing to tissue inflammation, and the mother remained in the hospital for another month.
It was the proficiency and the care of the team that saw both the mother and the baby through safety. Moreover, funds up to 3 lakhs were raised by the collective efforts of doctors to help the parents out in this dire situation.
Kudos to Dr Ramapriya and his team for their expert care, and to Dr Adinarayan and Dr Lakshmi for their immense contributions.
On July 3, 2018, Kangaroo Care proved themselves to be a truly futuristic establishment when it comes to patient care. We performed a demonstration of the use of real-time CTG (Cardiotocography) monitoring on a doctor’s smartphone. With this technology, the fetal heartbeat and uterine contractions of a patient will be instantaneously available on the doctor’s fingertips. This allows them to monitor the conditions of the mother and the baby-to-be at all times, giving them a greater hold on their care. This pilot project is being pioneered for the first time in Karnataka at Kangaroo Care, and is a shining moment for all of us.
An elderly mother, having undergone 9 previous abortions with autoimmune disorders, came by Kangaroo Care. The baby was delivered just after 27 weeks. The mother had a turbulent post-operative recovery and our doctors – Dr Adi and Dr Lakshmi – worked really hard to bring her back to normal.An elderly mother, having undergone 9 previous abortions with autoimmune disorders, came by Kangaroo Care.

Understanding the plight of this mother who has been through so much, our doctors waived off the consultation fee altogether and a significant discount has been given to her hospital charges.
One of our doctors has generously contributed to the baby’s medical fee.
A preterm baby (34 weeks) weighing only 1.7 kg was referred to Kangaroo Care by another hospital. Our in-house doctor – Dr Narendra Babu – performed the first major paediatric surgery (tracheoesophageal fistula repair) here. The operation has been successful and the baby has been discharged.
On 18-oct-2017, kangaroo care retrieved the first baby in our state of the art, critical care ambulance service KATS. It was an unexpected home delivery in Vijayanagar. The OBG and the nursing team’s presence of mind and dexterity made sure that both mother and the baby are safe and normal.
A morbidly obese patient suffering from gross incontinence visited Kangaroo Care. Dr Madhusudhan Naidu and Dr Kshama performed the complex surgery of vaginal hysterectomy with bladder repair. The patient is doing well and was discharged on 18-Oct-2017.
Collaborating with Fanhem, Kangaroo Care is installing central monitoring systems in NICU. This pilot project will allow the doctors to monitor baby vitals regularly on their smart phones. This 24x7 baby care facility takes us a step closer to our vision of providing premier quality and high standard healthcare to every mother and child.
