Physical training with a physiotherapist is Monday to Friday at 12.30-01.00pm.
A conversation with you
An employee will have a conversation with you at admission as well as prior to you being discharged. Together with you, we will find out when you and your baby are ready to go home.
The Maternity Award is situated on the second floor in building A. Use the main entrance to the hospital, and ask at the reception desk if necessary.
The award has two delivery rooms and a family room, where the maternity patient will be taken care of during labor pain and the first hours after delivery.
At the examination room you will be attended to by a doctor or a midwife.
There are both 4bedded and 2 bedded rooms for your stay, as well as a nursing room for babies, where the doctor will examine your child prior to going home.
