ADVICE

Highly qualified specialist

Choosing and planning to deliver your child in Cyprus ensures the continuity of follow-up and observation during the last stages of pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal periods. This is achieved, at all stages of pregnancy and childbirth, by having the same attending doctor, ensuring that optimal maternal and child care are reached. This approach is fundamentally different from the Russian standards, where all three stages associated with child birth, are performed not only by different doctors, but also by different organizations.

Duration of Stay

The minimum period of arrival in Cyprus is at least two weeks before the expected delivery date provided that there are no problems with the flight.

You can decide about the duration of stay in Cyprus, although the first 90 days are considered critical. In case you wish to extend this period, you will require to apply for a residence permit which implies additional costs to ensure your stay on the island.

Check with your airline of choice about their requirements and procedures regarding flying during pregnancy. Standard requirements would involve a gestational age less than 36 weeks. The gestational age is defined to the airline by a Gynecologist providing you with a certificate confirming the pregnancy and its details

General Services

When a child is born in Cyprus, the birth certificate is issued by the Republic of Cyprus. Given this fact, it is at present possible for the child to obtain the Cypriot citizenship upon reaching the age of 18. A one-year Cyprus Army Service exempts boys from having to serve in the Russian army.

Provided that the child’s father is physically present at the time of applying for the Russian citizenship at the Russian Embassy, it only takes fifteen minutes for the child to get his Russian citizenship. This procedure compares favourably with standard Russian.

Provided that the child’s father is physically present at the time of applying for the Russian citizenship at the Russian Embassy, it only takes fifteen minutes for the child to get his Russian citizenship. This procedure compares favourably with standard Russian.

Insurance

When a pregnancy is pre-planned, it is possible to make arrangements for a health insurance to cover the cost of pregnancy management and childbirth. Having said that, the mother has to obtain medical coverage that includes future childbirth at least 12 months prior to pregnancy

It is highly advisable to purchase a medical insurance during your stay in Cyprus.

You can scan and send by email your test results and analysis. This will enable the medical team both to assess the risks of childbirth and save on possible future investigation needed for the expectant mother.

Questions

Frequently asked questions

How is the cost of services determined?

The cost of the services is pre-determined at the time of agreement and depends on the type of delivery. Usually, specific action is taken long before the delivery with a prediction of the course of delivery, and by the stipulated time of arrival in Cyprus, the set amount is final.

What is the procedure for payment of services?

Cost of services paid for by the fact of providing the service by billing the hospital. It is a business practice, that hospital fees for the cost of services don’t have the tendency to increase, so it is unlikely to have unpleasant surprises in this regard.

Do you think it is economically feasible to perform deliveries in Cyprus and at your hospital, in particular?

What is the policy regarding pain management during labour?

In normal labor, it is the mother who decides about the type of anesthesia. We have top- notch anesthesiologists who would be present throughout the entire period of confinement. It is important to remember that the decision to use a variety of methods of anesthesia should be made beforehand.

Is baby resuscitation feasible? What is the cost?

The hospital has the necessary equipment and personnel for the resuscitation of a child. It is Hospital policy is that until the entry of women in the family room made all arrangements to assess the status of the fetus (unborn child). There is continuous cardiac monitoring of the fetus. In the case of complications or situations that do not favor a natural childbirth, the decision to proceed with a Caesarean Section is taken. There is no practice for obtaining explicit evidence of fetal hypoxia and other violations of the placenta and fetus. In the event of an emergency during the hospital stay, a team of neonatologists from the prenatal center is available. As an unfortunate situation does not . develop instantaneously, there is sufficient time to organize the transfer delivery of a child to a special neonatal center from the moment of birth, accompanied by a specialized team of doctors. The costs of prenatal centre services perinatal are not included in the package of hospital services for childbirth. All the basic activities for newborn resuscitation can be performed with the existing hospital equipment and is within the capabilities of the staff.

Is there cardiac monitoring during the birth of the child?

Cardiac monitoring is carried out continuously during childbirth, as it is a reliable way to determine the status of the unborn child.

Are you a supporter of natural childbirth?

If the question relates to our own philosophy, we support an integrated approach both to preserve the health of mother and her child without any fanaticism. Nevertheless, the final decision on the mode of delivery is taken by the expectant mother. Our objective is to provide unbiased information for making decisions.

How do you feel about the fact that Cyprus has a high rate of Caesarean Section deliveries?

The first thing that should be noted is that births in Cyprus, do not end up as Caesarean Sections, but begin by being elective Caesarean Sections – this is often a conscious choice made by the women. Births by caesarean section do not bear the risk of neurological complications in children. In addition, an advanced technique of anesthesia, in particular, the use of epidural anesthesia, allows women to take part in the birth of their child, and significantly reduce the risk of the postoperative period. In addition, we carry out an effective program for pain management not only during the operation, but also during the post-operative period. Therefore, the recovery time (2-3 days), including the time of childbirth itself, both after a Cesarean Section and a natural childbirth, is absolutely similar. This, in turn often makes the option of cesarean section more favorable. The second factor is the human interference in natural selection. Unfortunately, we as a species and biological populations do not become healthy and strong physically deteriorated since the introduction of such benefits of civilization as a car, television and fast food.

Why is it, do you think, that Russia has not attained the level of western private clinics?

Because western private clinics provide a continuity of pregnancy, childbirth, and su pport to ensure a smooth postpartum period. Russia on the other hand, has adopted a separate system in regards to pregnancy and childbirth management (classic ligament – clinics and home maternity). Even if you use the services of private clinics for the management of your pregnancy, and you’ll be able to avoid the negative emotions associated with the public health system, labor will still take place in a public office or through a government agency. With all the ensuing consequences, such as a stream of women in childbirth. Even in the most prosperous state clinics in Moscow, such as CFPR and the Perinatal Center, taking an average of over 30 deliveries per day, results in a great strain both on staff and on the capabilities of the clinic. If you’re not a media person, it is difficult to expect quality service in such circumstances, since the theory of queues is still in practice. Probability of falling into a situation where “dense” is not zero. It would be enough to read some customer reviews about these centers on the Internet. The existence of private clinics http://www.baby.ru/company/search in Russia that are similar to ours, is also impossible as shown by the statistics. Deliveries are lotteries with a very high successful rate; nevertheless the remaining percentage will not go anywhere. But what is allowed to Jupiter is not allowed a bull. Investment attractiveness of the opening of private hospital tends to zero in connection with a hundred percent chance of license revocation for any incident. We’re not talking about the features of urban development code, health standards and regulations in Russia, preserved since typhus barracks.
