The patient ward dedicated to women for both obstetrical and gynecological procedures at the St Maarten Medical Center is called the Maternity or OBGYN WARD.
Staff on the OBGYN ward are privileged to serve the future generations of St Maarten as well as the immediate medical concerns of our female population. We provide you with a friendly and supportive environment.
We offer an array of maternity services, such as ante-partum care (before birth), labor and delivery, and postpartum (after birth) neonatal care. Delivery procedures include facilitating normal births, twin births, breech, vacuum, forceps and caesarean section deliveries.
With 18 beds in private, semi-private, open ward and isolation rooms we best accommodate your health and privacy needs. Our labor and delivery rooms are well equipped to handle any complication which may arise.
Our well-qualified and experienced staff consists of nurses, gynecologists, obstetricians, midwives, a pediatrician, neonatal nurses and ancillary support staff. Other specialists are also available for consultation when needed. Bedside help is never far away with a nurse call system activated at the touch of a button within your reach. Team OBGYN welcomes you to the best maternal and child health care service on St. Maarten.
Prenatal Care and Counseling
Our staff is dedicated to helping families by providing information about pregnancy, labor, birth, the post-partum period and breastfeeding (you can download our brochures in the side panel). We will help you get familiarized with the care of mother and baby while at the hospital and what to expect when you go home. New parents are encouraged to attend clinics starting from 12 weeks of pregnancy. During these clinics you will receive a wide scope of information for mother and baby.
