Labour Ward

A newborn baby sleeping on mother's lapOver 4000 children are born in our ward. Our goal is to take the family and the individual needs of mothers into account. The mother and child are treated by a midwife and, if required, an obstetrician, anaesthesiologist and a paediatrician.

The labour ward is on duty 24 hours a day.

A daily inpatient fee or a clinic fee is collected, depending on the visit. See client fees.

The partner or a support person is welcome to participate in the childbirth. Other visitations need to be arranged separately with the staff.


Every delivery room is a single room, where the infant is also cared for. Some of the delivery rooms have a shower and a toilet. One of the rooms has a bath tub.

Caesarean sections are performed in an operation room located at the labour ward. A partner or a support person can participate in a caesarean section.

The partner or support person can have some food or wait in a break room located in the ward.
