It is about affordable specialized care that every family should have access to when they experience what is the most important aspect of life.

The boutique birthing outfit us specially designed to understand the needs, challenges, and requirements of motherhood. "We, at the centre, believe that motherhood is not just about delivering a child but an experience and a journey, which can be enriched and augmented at each step by providing specialised care.

"The task of making this journey special begins the moment a woman comes to the hospital for pre-pregnancy counseling and is heightened when she discovers her pregnancy and finally has her baby. Therefore, it is important to have a dedicated hospital that is designed to cater to the holistic needs of a woman and her child, both before and after birth," said Dr Seema Vig, Centre Head, Paras Bliss Hospital, New Delhi.
