A male stalker had to subdued with a Taser after he caused a commotion in a birthing unit in a southwest Sydney hospital, police allege.

The 25-year-old man's aggressive behaviour led to patients and families being temporarily uprooted from the birthing suite at Canterbury Hospital at 9pm on Thursday, as he interfered with hospital staff trying to help a woman.

When police arrived there was a physical confrontation and the man was tasered.

He was remanded in custody and is due to face Burwood Local Court on Friday charged with multiple offences including stalking and assaulting police.

The man was known to the woman through a family connection but they were not in a relationship, police said.
