Your stay at the clinic

The time in hospital immediately after giving birth is intended for you to get to know the new addition to your family, and belongs to you, your partner and your baby. The team from the Salem-Spital are there for you and your baby around the clock and help you come to terms with your new daily schedule.


We will do everything possible to ensure that you feel at ease in your new role as parents.
