At Parktown Hospital we have a maternity department and we deliver babies by normal birth and C-sections. We provide health services to women, babies and families throughout the whole pregnancy. During labor, birth and after birth for up to six weeks. We monitor the health and well-being of the mother and baby (health education and assistance during labor and normal birth.)

C-Section - C-section also known as caesarean delivery, the surgical procedure by which one or more babies are delivered through an incision in the mother's abdomen, often performed because vaginal delivery would put the baby, mother or both at risk. Our Maternity Wards Include:

Antenatal Wards

We have antenatal wards. Our midwives and doctors provide antenatal care will check the health of you and your baby give you useful information to help you have a healthy pregnancy, including (Antenatal Classes) advice about healthy pregnancy, healthy eating and exercise, discuss your options and choices for your care during pregnancy labour and birth.

Labour Wards

We have Labour Wards or Delivery Suites located within the hospital with medical facilities and doctors for safe delivery of your baby. Women and babies classified as being at higher obstetric or fetal risk and need more specialist care from our midwives during the course of their labor and birth are catered for at this unit. When you have had your baby you would usually stay in for a couple of hours after birth and we will check that you and your baby are both well and that you are happy with feeding and caring your baby. We will also provide you with information about how how to contact someone if you are concerned once you have gone home. If you need to stay in hospital for any medical reasons you will be transferred to postnatal-ward.

Postnatal Wards

We have Post natal-Wards, located in maternity unit next to the labor ward. Following birth, sometimes you and your babies require closer monitoring and may be advised to remain in the hospital and be transfered to the post-natal ward until you and your baby are well enough for discharge. The length of the post-natal stay will be dependent upon the reason of your admission. A team of midwives, nurses and doctors will look after you until you are well enough to go home. You baby will always stay with you on the ward. The only exception is if they need extra care after the birth which can not be provided on the post-natal ward in which they will be taken to the special care unit.

Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Also known as an intensive care nursery is an intensive care unit specializing in the care of ill or premature newborns infants (Neonatal First 28 Days Of Life).
