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:

  • Delivery rooms feature state-of-the-art equipment
  • The nursery includes a special section for special care 
  • In case of emergency procedures, and if there is no time to reach the operating theatre located right upstairs from the maternity unit, each delivery room can securely be transformed into a safe and well-equipped operating room to perform the procedure onsite. 

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

The facilities include:

  • 2 private labor rooms

The Maternity is entirely air-conditioned.

  • A hairdresser, a pedicurist and an esthetician are available by appointment. 

Comprehensive delivery rooms


Our delivery rooms are fully equipped to provide a safe and comportable environment. Each of them is equipped with:

  • a vital signs monitor
  • adult anesthesia and reanimation equipment
  • a central monitoring station for a remote surveillance from the early stages of labor, to offer more privacy for mothers and their partners, while improving security.
  • an area for thebaby where emergency care can be provided if necessary.

During delivery, you will be closely monitored by your obstetrician and an obstetric anesthesiologist. A midwife and a nurse are present at all times.

Neonatal pediatricians can also be called to the delivery room at any time if necessary. 

Pain prevention

Anesthesiologists are available around-the-clock to perform epidural blocks and spinal anesthesia. During the postpartum period, they work with the obstetrician to ensure pain prevention.

Quality infant care

Our nursery is tailored to meet each baby's special needs while delivering the highest possible quality of care.

It includes a special section to provide care for babies who require continuous observation or extra care and it is specifically designed to keep all babies within the sight and reach of staff at all times.

Experienced pediatricians specializing in neonatal medicine are available around the clock should an emergency arise. They will examine your infant at least twice during your stay.

Although it is not a requirement in all maternity units, we have chosen to have a team of pediatric nurses or midwife on hand 24 hours a day. They have specific training in emergency infant care and "painless healthcare" techniques

Breastfeeding
As part of our quality approach, we honor a Breastfeeding Charter to promote and support breastfeeding.
A specific consultation is offered at the Maternity with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). If you wish, there can also be follow-up consultations after your departure.

A Special Parent-Child Relationship

At birth, your baby will be placed directly on your abdomen for skin-to-skin contact. Except in special cases, all newborn care can be provided in the presence of the parents.

Each bedroom has a special area where mothers can provide care to their newborn on their own if they wish. This allows mothers to stay with their babies at all times if they wish so, from birth to the time they leave the maternity.


Father Involvement
Everything is done to enable fathers to be involved in the birth process if they wish to do so: 

  • presence during delivery (both for vaginal births and C-sections)
  • skin-to-skin contact with their infant
  • access to the nursery to help care for their infant 
  • a guest bed can be provided on request
