For over 100 years, we have been committed to offer the best maternity services possible, including:
Safety and quality of care for both your baby and you
Quality and safety at the American Hospital of Paris Maternity Unit is recognized both by the American Joint Commission and the French Haute Autorité de Santé.
Our teams follow strict medical and nursing guidelines for safer protocol based care. Their expertise is continuously evaluated. They all meet once a month at the larger Women’s and Health Children’s Department meeting, where clinical cases are reviewed and a global follow-up is made.
Doctors and staff of our Maternity Unit can also connect at anytime with other hospital specialists and teams if their expertise is necessary (for instance, if embolization is necessary to treat excessive bleeding). In case of life-threatening emergencies, they can use our specific protocol to alert and mobilize an emergency team 24/7. The team, which includes a cardiologist, intensivist and nurses, arrives in less than two minutes to provide emergency care to patients in a life-threatening situation.
The design and equipment of the facility was also carefully chosen to provide a safe environment:
Prenatal tests and screening
The American Hospital of Paris Fetal Medicine Unit offers the full range of consultations
and tests, scans and blood sampling to screen for fetal diseases, infections and chromosomal malformations. This includes non invasive prenatal blood tests.
To discuss or book one of our prenatal screening packages, call our Fetal Medicine Unit from Monday through Friday, 9 am to 5 pm: +33146412882
