Mothers who have given birth and new-born babies are treated at the ward. Families will be guided in caring for the baby, breast feeding and the mother’s recovery. The length of treatment is planned on individual basis. Most of the rooms at the ward are family rooms.
Additionally, neonatal outpatient clinic visits take place at the ward after discharge.

The ward has only family rooms, and all of its operations are governed by WHO and UNICEF's Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative.

Visiting hours are between 6.00 pm–7.00 pm. Persons suffering from an infectious disease are not allowed to visit.

Visiting the ward during influenza and RSV season
Visiting the inpatient ward will be limited during the flu season to provide safety for our patients and prevent the spread of infections. Only two people are allowed to visit a patient at a time. Please ask the staff first if the baby’s siblings are allowed to visit. You are not allowed to visit the ward if you are suffering from an infectious disease. We recommend that patients mainly remain in their rooms at the ward during the flu season. The staff can give you further information about visiting. You are not allowed to visit the ward if you are suffering from an infectious disease.​
