Childbirth is an adventure of a lifetime. Here is your itinerary in the Avicenne maternity ward:

Often taken care of by her gynecologist at the beginning of her pregnancy, the pregnant woman must contact the clinic or the maternity department for the delivery. 5 key stages mark out the journey of a woman who will give birth in the maternity ward:

  • The last hospital prenatal consultation. During this consultation, the doctor will check the progress of your pregnancy. He does not routinely perform an obstetrical examination or ultrasound except in the case of a medical indication.
  • Arrival in the emergency room for delivery. The emergency department is there to welcome and reassure women. A pregnant woman must know that she can come to the emergency service at any time for reasons other than childbirth, for a pregnancy check-up in case of concern, for example.
  • The delivery room. This is the place where the child will be born.
  • The postpartum, that is, the stay in the maternity ward after childbirth. This phase after childbirth is when mother and child will learn to know each other. The help and advice of the midwife is particularly valuable, especially for the daily care of the child, and the preparation for the return home. The team around you is made up of midwives, doctors, nurses, and other hospital staff. The length of stay in the maternity ward during childbirth is decided in agreement with the gynecologist, pediatrician, midwife and mother. It can vary from 1 to 2 days in case of natural and uncomplicated birth. Longer stays are planned in case of a problem or simply if the mother feels very tired or if the baby needs a little longer monitoring due to jaundice, for example.
  • Return back home

This is the typical journey for a childbirth knowing that sometimes certain unpredictable events can modify this journey.

The gynecologist may decide, in agreement with the pregnant woman, to schedule a date for a cesarean delivery in advance. In this case, the length of stay in the maternity hospital usually varies from 2 to 3 days.
