Finland is one of the safest and most reliable choices in the world to give birth. Finnish hospitals provide professional private delivery packages with a warm and caring touch. A multi-specialist team of doctors and midwives is always responsible for the delivery, their first priority being the wellbeing of the mother and child. 

The mothers individual wishes and needs are taken into consideration in many ways. For example, the mother may choose between several medical and non-medical pain treatment options. The care team makes sure the family gets a good start from the very beginning ensuring, for example, a successful beginning of breast­feeding. The comprehensive childbirth packages cover everything the mother and the baby need
