​In addition to healthy women in labor, the labor ward in Women’s Hospital is also responsible for difficult risk pregnancies and very premature deliveries in the HUS district. Planned Cesarean sections, late pregnancy appointments and inductions of labor are also performed at the ward. 

Our Family Recovery Rooms enable skin-to-skin contact and keep the family together after a Cesarean section.
