Welcome to visit our labour and maternity ward

If you are having your first child, you and your partner are welcome to take a tour and have a look at our labour and maternity ward.  The best time for this would be on pregnancy week 32 or later.

When you come for the visit, a midwife from the ward will show you around the delivery ward.  A midwife from the maternity ward will talk about the period after childbirth (the puerperium), breastfeeding and infant care.

The tours take place in the U-Hospital (building #3) on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays at 14–15 hours (2–3 PM).  We can accommodate a maximum of 10 couples at each tour.

Book a tour

Book a time to visit us!  Just use the link below and enter the name of the mother.   One booking covers the couple of you. You don't need to register – just wait by the meeting place sign.  Reserve one hour for the tour.  The father or partner/support person is welcome to join. The tour is not for children.

NOTE! Due to the covid-19 epidemic, we must cancel all agreed tours and birth preparation until 31 May 2020.  We recommend the web page to help you prepare for birth.  You can have a virtual (electronic) tour of the delivery ward and have a look at our facilities.
