Our aim of the care is to achieve a healthy mother and child with the least possible level of intervention that is compatible with safety.
We strive to support you, your partner and your family during labour, at the moment of childbirth and in the period thereafter. This is done by keen observation; monitoring of the fetal condition and of the condition of the infant after birth; assessment of risk factors; early detection of problems. Minor interventions such as amniotomy and episiotomy are performed if necessary. A pediatrician or a neonatologist takes care of the infant after birth.
Throughout labour and delivery your physical and emotional well-being is regularly assessed. This implies measuring of temperature, pulse and blood pressure, checking fluid intake and urine output, assessing pain and need of support. This monitoring is maintained until the conclusion of the birthing process.
Particular attention to your privacy during labour is provided. Your choice of companions will be respected and the presence of unnecessary persons in the labour room will be avoided.
