Hospital care during pregnancy

Wards for pregnant women treat mothers who need monitoring at the hospital because of some pregnancy-related problem, such as high blood pressure, risk of premature labor or bleeding. The baby’s condition may also require hospital care even when the mother is feeling fine. Initiation of labor also takes place in the wards for pregnant mothers.

The treatment is planned individually in co-operation with obstetricians and midwives: the purpose is to ensure the well-being of the mother and fetus. The mother's family and other near ones are welcome to visit the ward, but family members cannot stay overnight.
