Approximately 18,000 babies are born in Helsinki and Uusimaa Hospital District hospitals every year. Nearly every third Finn is born in a HUS hospital.
HUS has five maternity hospitals: Hyvinkää, Jorvi, Kätilöopisto and Lohja Hospitals and the Women’s Hospital. In addition, Länsi-Uusimaa Hospital and Porvoo Hospital performs Maternity Outpatient Clinic operations, including ultrasound screenings.
Treatment in the maternity hospital is family-oriented and baby-friendly, and is based on the wishes of the mother, while utilising modern monitoring devices.
