Hotel rooms
More than 500 newborns are admitted to the Special Care Baby Unit annually. Maternity provides two guest rooms (with kitchenette) for mothers not themselves hospitalized, to make sure they can stay close.

Mobile telephone
To avoid interference with electronic monitoring appliances, please switch your mobile phone off in the labour room, in intensive care and in the pre-natal rooms. Elsewhere, its use is permitted. Please use it with discretion.

In certain rooms, there are nurseries equipped with secure 24-hour access using access cards. A central nursery welcomes babies whose mothers are not in the unit.

Personal effects
During your stay, take various belongings. For you: pads and nursing bra, disposable knickers, slippers and toiletries and comfortable clothes. For your baby: items of clothing (baby grows, pyjamas, hats, etc.) and car seat for safe transport by car. We would like to remind you that you are responsible for your valuables during your stay. We also recommend that you do not come with too much money, jewellery, etc.

Taking your baby home
After a complication-free childbirth, you can return home quickly (within 48 hours). This will be followed by domiciliary help and support from a previously appointed community midwife. The average duration of a stay for a caesarean is around 4 days.
