Women’s disease and maternity department

Womens's disease and maternity department consists of five units:

Prenatal and maternity unit has:

  • 4 delivery rooms with toilet and shower room (separate room for every woman giving birth)
  • one delivery room with a bath for relieving pain and/or water birth (preparation is recommended),

All women can come to give birth, irrespective of their residence. Admission to Pärnu Hospital’s maternity department is performed 24/7 through the emergency medicine department (entrance on Ehitajate Street).


Our experienced midwives, doctors of women, and paediatricians assist and support you. A doctor of women and a paediatrician are on the spot 24/7, we have also a surgical ward with an anaesthesiologist for conducting both scheduled and emergency caesarean sections. The anaesthesiologist also conducts epidural analgesia for relieving delivery pains. If you wish, you can use individual fee-charging delivery assistance service – an opportunity to give birth with a midwife you have chosen.


In the same wing, there are 3 prenatal rooms both for in-patient and daytime treatment. These rooms are for situations that require the treatment and surveillance of different illnesses related to pregnancy. We use:

  • 3D/4D ultrasound scanner that enables to make 3-dimensional images and videos of the fetus that can be recorded on a DVD, if required.
  • CTG devices for monitoring the heart of the fetus.
  • Wireless CTG device that enables the patient to move around the department or take a shower during the test.
