Obstetrics/Birthing Unit

*New: Obstetrics/Birthing Unit FAQ

As a Level I unit, the birthing suite is able to look after most routine deliveries. We are proud of the patient, family-centred care that we provide to our community.

Our team of health care providers will work in partnership with you to ensure that you have the information needed for your health and wellbeing before your baby's birth, during your delivery and hospital stay and when you return home.

We provide supportive care for women during labour and birth in our family-friendly birthing suite. You will remain in the same large, comfortable room with your new baby until you are ready to go home.

Stevenson was named one of Ontario’s top performers in maternity care by the Ontario Hospital Association and National Research Corporation Canada. Also, our Obstetrics team has a 100% satisfaction rate with maternity patients. You can rest assured that you and your baby will be well taken care of at Stevenson with our attentive, dedicated staff.
