The maternity ward includes the maternity emergency room, the labor rooms and two maternity units, in which women after vaginal birth and caesarean section are admitted.
Also, the ward includes the unit for maternal and fetal medicine (high risk pregnancy)
Maternity Emergency room
The maternity emergency room is where 24+ weeks pregnant women are admitted. There are a few reasons for which you should consider going to the maternity emergency room: premature labor, fear of a drop in fetal movement and of course – childbirth.
Also, the maternity emergency room admits women who are 40+ weeks pregnant for follow up, to make a decision about the nature of labor and to schedule a caesarean section.
Kaplan Medical Center has 9 labor rooms. Apart for a monitor in each room, we also have an external screen next to the nurses’ station, in which we can constantly monitor your baby, and make sure that there is someone to watch over the progress of your labor at any time, even if there is no medical staff present in the room and you get some privacy and time for yourself.
Experienced midwives to accompany you in the labor fitting you and contribute from their professional experience to promote you towards a safe delivery are in charge of the rooms. The midwives in the Kaplan Medical Center undergo trainings about natural childbirth and constantly participate in conventions, seminars and updates.
In addition to regular hospitalization post-partum you can choose the rooming-in method, in which the baby stays with the mother post-partum. You can choose between complete and partial rooming-in. Apart for two hours, between 8:00-10:00 in the morning, that the baby has to stay in the neonatal unit for a doctor’s evaluation.
