Every day is Mother's Day at Northumberland Hills Hospital!
The Maternal Child Care team at NHH understands the unique needs of newborns, their mothers and family members. Supported by obstetricians, family physicians, anesthesiologists, and midwives the birth of a child is a celebration shared by both parents and hospital staff alike.
NHH's Maternal Child Care unit is equipped with six labour and delivery beds, each in their own private and home-like suite, a Caesarean-section operating room, advanced fetal and patient monitoring and a comfortable family lounge. A baby safety system provides 24-hour security, following your baby's birth.
