Prenatal Unit
​The Prenatal Unit of Labour and Delivery at Royal University Hospital is a 14 bed inpatient unit where mothers stay when they have complications in their pregnancy such as high blood pressure or diabetes.  We also may begin induction of labour in this unit.

 There are many reasons mothers come to stay with us.  Some are happy, some are sad. We understand that childbirth is a time of great change for families, and we want to support you in any way we can.  We strive to provide you and your family with personalized emotional, educational, physical, psychosocial and cultural support, in order to give you the most positive birth experience possible.      
Located on the 4th floor of the 1955 Building in Royal University Hospital, the Prenatal unit has semi-private rooms which are available at no charge. Some private rooms may be available.

There is available a family lounge and kitchen available. The family lounge is located at the end of the hallway on the Prenatal Unit.  Feel free to relax and socialize in this space.  There is a TV, laundry facilities and a kitchenette stocked with bread, juice, cereals, milk and other small snacks.  You may also bring your own food and keep it in the fridge.  Please be sure to label your food with your name and room number. Visitors are not permitted to sleep in the lounge overnight.
