Città di Roma Hospital


Città di Roma Hospital (CdRH) is a general hospital which includes a medium-size maternity unit. The hospital is affiliated with the University of Rome, La Sapienza. Almost all parturients attend the hospital antenatal childbirth preparation classes which typically include a lecture on labour analgesia given by an anaesthesiologist. 

Foreign visitors are most welcome, however their full clinical involvement with the patients will also depend on Italian language skills. For hands-on clinical practice Italian government and insurance requirements must be met.


In all cases, the visitor will experience the departmental life including antenatal and preoperative consultations, labour epidural analgesia, caesarean section anaesthesia, difficult cases discussion and attendance to the weekly departmental meetings. Caesarean sections are performed under CSE anaesthesia followed by continuous epidural post-operative analgesia.


Incidence of instrumental delivery is 11% and of caesarean delivery is 35%, most of which are elective caesarean sections. Our obstetric anaesthesia department is enlisted in the ESA (European Society of Anaesthesiology) Fellowship Programme.
