In addition to the normal deliveries, the labor ward at Women's Hospital treats the most high-risk deliveries and extremely preterm births in the HUS area.

We also perform elective Cesarean sections, inductions of labor, and third-trimester follow-up visits. We have a family recovery room where your baby can have skin-to-skin contact and some family time immediately after the Cesarean section.




Labor starts with contractions or the rupture of fetal membranes, i.e. the waters breaking. Please always call your maternity hospital before arrival.
