International Women's day is marked to celebrate the spirit of Womanhood world-wide. This day recognizes women as an embodiment of strength and power and an individual who gives birth to new life. A baby's birth is one of the most special and unique times in a family's life; an occasion met with a combination of unbridled joy, and jittery nerves, which surrounds the woman and her baby.
On this occasion, Apollo Cradle, Chennai highlighted an unusual yet successful surgery performed by a team of experts. The patient, a 32-year-old woman, who was carrying 34 weeks foetus had complaints of excruciating pain in the back and decreased movement of left leg.
