The unit has 10 birthing rooms where you can cohabit with your newborn child. Your baby will remain with you 24/7.

Every birthing room has an adjustable delivery bed and an armchair or a bench so that your partner can remain with you throughout your stay, both night and day. If you had a C-section, it is strongly recommended that someone stay with you for the first 24 hours after the intervention. The birthing pavilion also has ergonomic stations to facilitate mobility during labour and hence a physiological birth.

In order to help you in your new role, the attending team will provide parental education for your baby's nutrition, care and hygiene.

Prenatal classes (during COVID-19)

In response to the mandatory confinement due to the pandemic, we are making the contents of our prenatal classes available online. Please consult them!

Accompaniment and visitors

During childbirth, one or two people whom you choose may accompany you. Visitors are welcome; however, hand washing is mandatory for all who choose to carry or handle your baby. Those who have an infection or a cold should abstain from visiting you to prevent spreading infections to the newborns in the birthing pavilion. We thank you for your understanding.
