Treatment during pregnancy aims to ensure the well-being of the mother and foetus. The Women's Outpatient Clinic specialises in antenatal screening and the treatment of risk pregnancies.

Women are admitted for examinations based on a referral, because of the mother's underlying condition or problems during pregnancy. These can include diabetes, fear of childbirth, or a substance addiction problem. The patient's spouse or another support person is welcome to attend the examination. Children, however, should not be brought to the outpatient clinic.

Individual care on the inpatient ward

Patients are admitted to the inpatient ward from the Women's Outpatient Clinic, labour ward emergency department, or another hospital. Women's Acute Ward and Women's Ward treat pregnant women for the following reasons:

  • Inducing labour
  • Pre-eclampsia
  • Threatening premature delivery
  • Bleeding

Women whose babies are rooming-in or are in neonatal intensive care also stay at the inpatient ward. In addition, the ward cares for families who have lost their babies. Treatment provided on the ward is individual and promotes participation. Family and friends are welcome to visit, but overnight stays at the ward are not possible.
