Birth Preparation

Parents-to-be make extensive preparations for the upcoming birth as this brings them a sense of safety and peace of mind. We are here to help you in this regard. We have put a programme together for you which will be of further help to you.

Information evening for parents-to-be
On a regular base our Information evening for parents-to-be are held. These events are held in German. An expert team consisting of midwives, nurses, mother consultation as well as a breastfeeding counselor will provide you with in-depth answers to all your questions and show you round the maternity unit and maternity ward.

Individual visit
In addition to the tour of our maternity ward and maternity at the information evening for expectant parents, we will also be happy to show you around our department at a personal viewing appointment. For an individual appointment please contact us at +41 41 784 03 40.

Midwife consultation
Your concerns and questions will be addressed, along with possible types of birth in a personal midwife consultation. The maternity ward has an excellent infrastructure with high standards. You will get to know the birthing rooms, the maternity ward and our philosophy in an individual tour. On this occasion, you can make initial contact with our multilingual midwives.

Antenatal classes
Our antenatal classes (held in German) are designed to support you through the remaining weeks of your pregnancy, ease your fears and insecurities and optimally prepare you for the coming birth. With a careful, easily intelligible introduction to all important topics, we would like to make this emotional, unique experience a positive one for you.

Acupuncture
We are pleased to offer you acupuncture by our midwives around the birth.

Required documents
You will receive an information form of the Civil office Cham for the certification of your baby's birth along with the admission documentation. Please make sure that you have the required documentation with you when you are admitted. The website of the Cham registry office (Zivilstandesamt Cham) offers you in-depth information about the required documents and regulations so that the birth can be correctly certified.

Our offer before the birth
  • Personal tour through the maternity unit
