We are the combination of four hospitals: the General Hospital, the Children’s Hospital, the Women’s Hospital and the Traumatology, Rehabilitation and Burns Hospital. We are part of the Vall d’Hebron Barcelona Hospital Campus: a world-leading health park where healthcare plays a crucial role.
Below we will list the departments and units that form part of Vall d’Hebron Hospital and the main diseases that we treat. We will also make recommendations based on advice backed up by scientific evidence that has been shown to be effective in guaranteeing well-being and quality of life.
We will guide you from your first visit to the centre, allowing you to find all the departments and make the most of our facilities. Whatever the reason for your visit, we will explain how to get about the hospital.
The Obstetrics and Reproductive Medicine Department cares for pregnant women, prioritising the health of the mother and the future baby above all else, while always respecting the wishes of the mother such as her preference for a natural birth or a C-section.
For women who want to have children and require technical assistance, we also have a cutting edge assisted reproduction laboratory. We also store the frozen eggs of women who have been diagnosed with cancer; provide treatment and support to women who have suffered consecutive miscarriages; and offer gynaecological treatment to girls, teenagers and women who are entering the menopause or who have a health problem.
The Obstetrics and Reproductive Medicine Department is a leading centre for prenatal diagnostics and intrauterine surgery.
The Obstetrics and Reproductive Medicine Department offers world-leading treatment, teaching and research.
The Reproductive Medicine Unit has the required technology and infrastructure in order to treat all issues related to human reproduction.
The Obstetrics Unit cares for women before, during and after their pregnancy. Its absolute priority is to meet the needs of each woman at all times. In a moment as important as the birth, the unit listens to the mother and provides her with everything she needs in order to take the decisions that she feels are correct.
Delayed cord clamping, which entails letting the newborn's umbilical cord continue beating after birth, is promoted to reduce the chance of the baby suffering from anaemia during its first year of life. We also promote skin-to-skin contact, also known as the kangaroo method, in which the newborn is placed in direct contact with the mother’s skin.
Services offered by the unit:
The Department prides itself on its ability to provide foetal treatments in serious cases in which the future baby requires surgery during the pregnancy. Vall d’Hebron Hospital is the leading centre for very high risk pregnancies, and it also has vast experience in the ultrasound monitoring of high and low risk pregnancies.
In addition, pregnant mothers with serious illnesses can give birth with the peace of mind of being in a hospital with all the necessary specialities in case any complications arise.
For all these reasons, our Department is considered a tertiary level, highly qualified centre.
We treat a high number of very high risk patients from all over Catalonia, the rest of Spain as well as from other countries.
We are also one of the hospitals accredited by the European Board and College of Obstetrics and Gynaecology (the only one in Spain), for the quality of our care, teaching and research.
