D Day _

Your big day

How will you know that it’s D Day? At what point should you come to the maternity ward? Who will be there to greet you?

Are you beginning to feel contractions? Are you wondering if your labour has started? Do not hesitate to call our midwives who will be there to reassure you and tell you if it is time for you to come to the maternity ward. 

Upon your arrival our team will welcome you and set you up in one of the delivery rooms where you will find a soothing and comfortable atmosphere equipped with state-of-the-art technology :

  • A bathtub with a jacuzzi 
  • Soft, subdued light
  • A choice of music (you are also welcome to bring your own music) 


Likewise for the other milestones of your pregnancy, the father of your child is welcome to stay by your side however you choose to deliver. This way you will be together for the intense and emotional moment when your child comes into the world.

An anaesthetist is on duty round the clock at the Clinique de La Source and will be ready to intervene at any time.
