The Birth - Care around the clock – you can be assured of this

Care around the clock – you can be assured of this.

Announcement

As soon as you experience regular contractions, if your waters have broken or if you feel unsure, please contact our maternity unit (T +41 +41 41 784 03). A midwife will decide with you on the phone how to proceed and whether or not you should come to the hospital. 

The Birth

The period of expectation before the great event is a truly special, indescribable time. The birth is just around the corner. Our well-established team is ready-and-waiting for you. The peaceful atmosphere in our maternity unit will help you to feel at ease. You can relax while the midwife caters to your specific needs. You can safely place yourself in her hands and concentrate fully on the birth.

Your gynaecologist is responsible for the overall management of the birth, working closely together with the midwife. As long as you and your baby are doing well, you may give birth in the position which you find most comfortable. We are happy to use alternative methods before, during and after the birth if you require.

During a caesarean birth, the anaesthesia team will look after your cardiac activity and circulation. We usually perform an spinal anaesthesia. In this way, you will be fully conscious for the birth of your baby.

Your partner/family member or close friend may naturally be present during the birth and also during a caesarean.
