Family births and care at our hospital
In our hospital, babies are born every day in safe conditions and under the care of medical staff. Your and your baby’s safety is a key priority for us, which is why we want to assure you that we are fully prepared to provide care in a professional manner and in compliance with all procedures at this special time.
Every person entering our hospital undergoes triage, i.e. an initial epidemiological assessment. We assess your partner’s health at the entrance and regularly throughout the stay, and provide him with all the necessary personal protective equipment (masks, gloves, etc.). We recommend that the Patient’s partner undergoes a 14-day home quarantine before the delivery date or the date of admission to the hospital.
The family birth process
Despite the difficult situation we are currently in, we want parents to spend as much time with their baby as possible.
Knowing how important it is to experience the birth of a child together, we continue to offer family births. In the case of natural delivery, we allow partners to be present in the delivery room during childbirth.
From 26 October 2020, in the case of delivery by caesarean section, the partner may stay with the child in the patient’s room immediately after delivery for skin-to-skin contact, however, he cannot be present in the operating room during the caesarean section.
Accompanying persons at the hospital
An accompanying person may stay at the hospital for up to four hours after delivery if the patient is staying in a single room, or until the patient and baby’s discharge if staying in the family room, as long as they don’t leave the room unless absolutely necessary and follow staff instructions. If the accompanying person leaves the ward, they will not be able to return.
Dear Parents, we make every effort to ensure you and your child are not only comfortable, but also as safe as possible. Introducing additional procedures helps us continue providing our services, thanks to which we can ensure safe childbirth conditions for everyone every single day.
