Welcome to visit our labour and maternity ward

NOTE! Due to the covid-19 epidemic, we must cancel all agreed tours and birth preparation until further notice.  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.

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.
