Midwives, obstetricians, paediatricians, anaesthetists and hospital attendants are available around the clock. The unit has five delivery rooms, two observation rooms as well as a sauna- and bathing facility. Every year about 1200 babies are born at Vaasa Central Hospital.

A child’s birth is always a major event in a family. We always aim to provide you with high standard individualised treatment and you are always welcome to discuss your wishes related to the birth with the midwife. If there is anything you remain unsure about, you are always welcome to contact the delivery unit even after you have been discharged.

The prenatal class is meant for you who are expecting your first child. The best time to attend the class is from pregnancy week 32 onwards. The class is held by a midwife working on the delivery ward. The class provides information about the different stages of labour and you practise breathing- and relaxation exercises.
