Postnatal wards

​You have placed your trust in us, and we are delighted to be able to look after you both – mother and child – on our ward.

A team of gynaecologists and paediatricians, nurses and breastfeeding advisors is there for you round the clock, and will treat you holistically and as an individual.

You will stay with your child in a room with its own integrated infant care unit. This 24 hour 'rooming in' system will help you develop a relationship with your baby from the outset, the medical term for which is 'bonding'. You can use this time to get to know one another, and to decide for yourself when you want to breastfeed.

Our rooms are bright, friendly, and equipped with a TV, phone, shower and bidet. Our family rooms make it possible for the mother, father and child to spend the night together. We provide a varied breakfast buffet in the foyer between 7.45 and 9.45 am. If you are still confined to bed, we will of course bring your breakfast to you. You can choose from a variety of lunch menus, and compose your own evening meal. In addition, a vending machine is always available should you be thirsty.

On the postnatal ward, you can start exercising for a return to full health. Experienced physiotherapists will provide the assistance you need. Even after a Caesarean section, there are gymnastic exercises you can practise in bed.
