We care for mothers who have given birth and their newborns.

The ward provides care for women who have given birth vaginally or by caesarean section and their newborns. We work according to the WHO's baby friendly hospital initiative (BFHI) program. We monitor the wellbeing of the mother and her child and support recovery from childbirth, breastfeeding and the interactions between the child and its parents as holistically as possible.

Our clients come to us from the labour ward after having given birth. We receive also patients (mothers and their babies) who have been discharged previously but who still need specialized care.
