Our Maternity Ward

Please click here for COVID-19 Updates and FAQs.

The St. Paul’s Hospital maternity ward is on the third floor of the Providence building. It is a large welcoming space with private all-in-one labour, delivery, and postpartum rooms, which allow for a more homey environment for birthing and postpartum care. All rooms have tubs, televisions, and telephones as well as a sleeper chair for your support person or significant other. Our family-centred program strongly encourages the primary support person to stay with the new mother and baby throughout their hospital stay.

The maternity ward is staffed by specialty-trained obstetrical nurses, with an obstetrician in-house and on call for any high risk obstetrical needs. There is also a special care nursery attached to the maternity unit to help babies who may need a little extra support in the postpartum period. Pediatricians are on call 24 hours a day and are available when needed.
