Delivery and gynecology

The delivery room functions as an emergency unit and takes care of both women giving birth and pregnant emergency patients from 20 pregnancy weeks onwards. The delivery room is located in B4, on the fourth floor of the main building of Vaasa Central Hospital. When you come to the floor, please ring the doorbell. At nights, 20:00 – 06:30, when the front door is closed, please ring the doorbell outside the main entrance.

Our ward treats pregnant mothers and babies as well as gynecological patients. A pregnant woman usually enters the ward through a maternity outpatientclinic or delivery room. Situations requiring ward care may include diseases of the expectant mother, high blood pressure and premature contractions. Approximately 2-3 hours after giving birth you will come to the ward from the delivery ward or after a caesarean section from the operation ward. As a gynecological patient, you come to us, for example, as agreed for surgery or through the emergency room. The ward treats gynecological surgery and procedure patients, problems of early pregnancy and abortions, as well as gynecological emergency patients.
