The Ward of Obstetrics is certified as a "baby-friendly maternity hospital" and is part of the established Geesthacht Women's Hospital, to which the Ward of Gynaecology belongs as well. We work continuously to promote normal birth with a current caesarean section rate of 20.2% (2019).

In the maternity ward there are enough family rooms and also a 24-hour rooming-in service available.

Our cooperative partner for daily paediatric rounds is the Lüneburg Municipal Hospital. This cooperation enables us to attend to births from the 35+0 week of pregnancy and to carry out necessary therapies without separating mother and child within our clinic.
