Äiti, isä ja kätilö ammesynnytyksessä

In our hospital, the pregnancy week limit for childbirth is 35+0. You are welcome to deliver your baby at our hospital from all regions of Finland. 

Our goal is to ensure safe childbirth and a good delivery experience for the whole family. In our small and cozy delivery unit, we serve you with warmth and a big heart. Over 1,000 babies are born at Lohja Hospital every year.

During childbirth, it is possible to choose from many nonpharmacologic and pharmacologic pain management methods. At Lohja Hospital, we offer the possibility for water birth, as all our delivery rooms are equipped with birthing pools. In the Labor Ward, we perform both elective and emergency Cesarean sections. After surgery, the family has the possibility of skin to skin contact with the newborn and spending time as a family together in the recovery room.

For each family, individual guidance and counseling is provided on the basis of the family’s needs. After giving birth, our cozy inpatient ward provides the opportunity to have a family room where the parents can get to know their new family member in peace and quiet. We offer women who have previously given birth, the opportunity for outpatient delivery or an early discharge from the hospital. In connection with the Maternity Unit, there is a Neonatal Monitoring Unit, where we care for babies requiring observation.

In addition to the nursing staff, our unit also has a gynecologist, an anesthesiologist and a pediatrician around the clock.

Free customer parking is available at Lohja Hospital. The parking lot offers 24-hour parking and 4-hour disc-parking spaces. In addition, there are also four parking spaces reserved for families arriving to give birth.

Midwives’ Q&A evenings

We also organize midwives’ Q&A evenings in cooperation with the maternity health clinics (neuvola) (at Lohja, Vihti, Nummela, Inkoo, Siuntio and Kirkkonummi). In these evenings, we go through the topics of childbirth and the management of labor pains, with a particular focus on natural pain relief methods. During the evening, you can ask the midwife questions about things that concern you regarding childbirth. Information on the schedules of the midwives’ Q&A evenings is available from the maternity health clinics (neuvola) and on the Facebook page of the Lohja Hospital Maternity Unit.
