Choose an obstetric clinic with available capacity

Choose an obstetric clinic with available capacity

Most often, it’s not possible to say for certain when labour will begin. This means that the number of deliveries varies widely over the day and between days. The vast majority, around 9 out of 10 women, usually give birth at the clinic of their first choice.

Plan so that you and your baby will have as calm and secure a delivery experience as possible: Choose an obstetric clinic that is estimated to have available capacity in the week you are expected to give birth.

Your midwife at the antenatal clinic knows where there will be available capacity and which obstetric clinics you can choose from. You can’t choose a clinic that already has more deliveries registered than they have capacity for.
