Having a Baby

The staff at the IWK Health Centre work to provide the best possible care for you and your baby. Please ask questions if there is something you do not understand and ask for assistance if you need help or have a concern about our services.

Within this directory, you will find services that are provided to expectant mothers and those who have pregnancy complications. You will also find helpful information about planning for your stay, admitting and specific services, resources and educational programs for expectant mothers. 

At left here you will find a list of some of our inpatient units – these are units where patients who are having a baby stay during admission to the Health Centre. This list also includes departments and services that support expectant mothers, those who are giving birth, and postpartum families during their stay at the IWK. You can search the list by scrolling at left or selecting the first letter of the unit/service name from the alphabet above. Please note this isn’t a complete list – expect more to be added soon.
