Saint James Hospital Group are proud to be one of a few select private hospitals/clinics within Europe to offer a choice of epidural, dry births, water births, and caesarian section births.
The maternity unit has two specially-designed water birthing pools, two birthing rooms equipped with foetal monitors and resucitators as well as dedicated maternity theatres. Besides being therapeutic and relaxing, the specially designed water baths aid the mother-to-be with cervical dilation.
Full ante-natal care and parent craft talks on an individual or group basis are offered together with midwifery care and breast feeding support.
We strive to help our mothers-to-be feel they have not left the comfort and security of their home during childbirth.
Ultrasounds, monitoring and laboratory investigations are available in this specially dedicated wing.
A tastefully decorated nursery with incubator and phototherapy light equipment is found in close proximity of all maternity private rooms.
We usually recommend a two night stay for normal vaginal birth whereas a five night stay is recommended for caesarian section birth, however each delivery is assessed on an individual basis.
Two postnatal home visits by our team of midwives are included in the birth package. Free accomodation to the accompanying partner is also offered.
Should the proud new parents wish so, a birth notification in a local private newspaper is offered.
Celebration champagne is also at hand should the happy couple wish to avail themselves of this service.
