In the Maternity Outpatient Clinic at Lohja Hospital, we treat pregnant women.
The first contact with the Maternity Outpatient Clinic is often ultrasound examinations of the early pregnancy, which are carried out at 11+6–13+6 and 20–22 weeks of pregnancy. The maternity health clinic (neuvola) will make the referral to the first ultrasound examination.
The most common reasons for visiting the Maternity Outpatient Clinic include:
- premature contractions
- abnormal presentation (e.g. breech)
- glucose metabolism disorders (gestational diabetes)
- assessment of the method of delivery, due to the previous delivery
- fetal size assessment
In connection with the Maternity Outpatient Clinic, there is a Swedish and Finnish-speaking clinic providing treatment for the fear of childbirth as well as appointments available to see a nurse. At the nurse’s appointment, for patients who are coming from home and who have delivered at Lohja Hospital, we provide breastfeeding guidance until the baby is 6 months old. At the appointment, we will also perform the physician’s and nurse’s check-ups for babies under the age of two weeks.
