Women & Babies

When the joy and expectancy of pregnancy or birth are interrupted by the unexpected, Sunnybrook is there. Among more than 4,300 deliveries here each year, we provide highly specialized and critically needed care for women with high-risk pregnancies and babies who are born prematurely. Sunnybrook has the world-leading expertise, cutting-edge research and state-of-the-art facilities necessary to change lives, each and every day.

But we are not stopping there. Building on best-practice models, we are focusing our expertise even further, becoming a Canadian leader in the care of micropremies — babies born at the earliest margins of survival, before 26 weeks gestation. With about 70 newborns meeting this criterion every year, Sunnybrook cares for one of the largest populations of micropremies in North America.

Our goal is to create a hub of micropremie care and expertise where babies receive the best possible chance to survive and thrive.
