Maternity Ward

Women become pregnant, give birth, breastfeed and care for their children very much in the same way across the world. But societies organize their health care programmes for pregnant women differently.

Admissions Line  +47 55 97 22 00  Please call BEFORE coming to the hospital.

Women who are about to give birth should call the Admissions Line before going to the Women's Clinic. 

The Admissions Line is for acute conditions and should primarily be used to notify us that the birth has begun and that you are on your way to the clinic.

Do not call the Admissions Line concerning matters that are not acute or that can wait and that can be discussed with your general practitioner, midwife or the Public Medical Ward.

What are the signs of birth, and when should you call the Admissions Line?
