Birth in front of the sea

Hospital de Mar is a modern centre, bathed in Mediterranean light. Our facilities are designed to favour a respectful, non-medicalised birth, adapted to your rhythm.

We have cosy and comfortable private rooms to experience the birth process, accompanied by whomever you decide and with our full support. Spaces equipped with natural light gradation, birthing balls, hydrotherapy baths and everything necessary to alleviate discomfort and to guarantee your health and that of your baby.

Respectful and personalised childbirth

Our team of midwives will help you design the birth plan that best suits your needs and wishes. This document will allow us to offer you the best support during pregnancy, birth and postpartum, and you will be able to modify it whenever you wish.

We will explain all the options available to you and we will give you individualised advice so that you can enjoy the most personalised birth possible, respecting the decisions you consider most appropriate at each stage of the process.

Accompaniment and pain management

Our priority is your wellbeing and that of your baby. Therefore, if you need it, we will provide you with different methods, both pharmacological and non-pharmacological, for pain control during labour: nitrous oxide, epidural, low-dose epidural (walking-epidural) or therapeutic shower to dilate thanks to the benefits of water.

ou can choose one or several methods and change from one to the other according to the evolution of your labour. You are free to decide at any time and you will always be advised by expert midwives.

Breastfeeding support

The key to successful breastfeeding is support, for which we have a team of specialised midwives with specific breastfeeding clinics.

We accompany families with a home-care programme during the first days to support breastfeeding and we have a hotline to midwives  7 days a week. In addition, we have postpartum groups.

Pregnancy, childbirth and COVID

During the COVID-19 pandemic, we have adapted to ensure the safety of pregnant women and their families.

Both the delivery rooms and the obstetric ward are kept away from areas with patients suffering from respiratory pathologies. In addition, we have a short-stay programme with home accompaniment, where the midwife makes a home visit within the first 24 hours.
