It is a daring and novel program initiated by Paalana Hospital Palakkad, as per which Paalana will adopt poor pregnant ladies for meeting their medical needs from the early stages of their pregnancy.
Their prenatal and post -natal care including the cost of Caesarean section is met in this program . Presently they have adopted 100 pregnant women under this program .The cost assessed for a normal delivery is Rs. 31,900, and for a Caesarean delivery is Rs. 50,000.
