Our maternity wards have mainly two person rooms and single rooms. We also have family rooms and a dayroom.
The family rooms are available according on the ward's overall capacity. Single rooms are reserved for patients who require a single room for medical reasons. You can ask if there are family rooms available when you are transferred to the maternity ward after the delivery. You can have a family room if your spouse can stay at the ward with you around the clock. Older siblings cannot stay in a family room.
The rooms have lockers for your personal belongings, but the space in the lockers is limited. We recommend that you bring your own toiletries. You can wear your own clothes and shoes if you wish.
Special outpatient clinics
Breastfeeding outpatient clinic
Families are supported at the breastfeeding outpatient clinic by the trained midwives of the department of obstetrics and gynaecology with a degree on lactation training or an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant certificate. We help in the challenges presented by breastfeeding, such as the sufficiency of milk, correct lactation position and the infant's refusal to suckle. Breastfeeding visits can be already planned during pregnancy if the previous breastfeeding has not succeeded or special complications are to be expected (e.g. the infant has a cleft lip).
Families come to the breastfeeding ward from the child health clinic by a nurse's or a physician's referral or after childbirth while admitted in the hospital. When you get a referral, schedule an appointment with the ward secretary (Mon to Fri 1 pm to 2 pm). A clinic fee is collected from your visit.
Early postnatal discharge outpatient clinic
The ward functions as a support to the family who have been discharged early, when the infant is less than 48 hours old. Families are seen by a work pair of a paediatrician and a midwife. Visits to the ward are free.
The nurse's practice functions as a support to the family's discharge. The family can be scheduled an appointment to the nurse's clinic when discharged. The midwives of the clinic will monitor the infant's weight development and jaundice. Visits to the clinic are free.
