Our maternity unit

Experience and personal care are central to us

When you give birth, you are not only bringing a new life into the world; your life is also going to change. Our experienced team of midwives, doctors, nurses and hotel specialists look after your and your child's health and well-being around the clock. We are there for you and your newborn: from preparing for the birth to returning home and during the initial period afterwards.

Capture your baby's first special moments with a professional photo shoot. With your permission, we will be happy to post a photo of your child on our baby photo gallery.
