Hirslanden Baby-Bag


Modern and practical. The Baby-Bag offers a lot of storage space and contains a water-repellent changing mat and an insulated, removable bottle holder. It can also be easily and quickly fixed to a pram with the two enclosed fastening hooks. Together with our partners, we have filled the baby bag with lots of useful and valuable items – everything that new parents will need.

The Baby-Bag is put together by intellectually challenged people at the WohnWerk in Basel. WohnWerk offers them the option of taking up meaningful and varied work. Find out more about WohnWerk.

FAQs to the Baby-Bag

Receiving the Baby-Bag

Who is the Baby-Bag given to?

The Baby-Bag is given to all mothers who have had a baby at one of the Hirslanden hospitals and are semi-privately or privately insured. 


Why have I not received a Baby-Bag even though I upgraded to semi-private or private?

There are different types of upgrades. Therefore the benefits may be limited to just the room upgrade – without additional benefits. In case you select a complete upgrade package, the Baby-Bag is included. To see the specific benefits available, please contact your chosen hospital.  

Basic insurance

I have basic insurance, do I also get something?

This varies from maternity hospital to maternity hospital. Often those with basic insurance are given a baby cap or a travel bag which can be used for the baby's personal items.


Where can one buy the Baby-Bag?

The Baby-Bag is our gift to mothers in the maternity ward who are semi-privately or privately insured and therefore the Bag is not for sale. From the comfort of your home, you can easily order our "Ernie" patterned cloth or the mascot  "Ernest" in our online shop.


Can you wash the Baby-Bag?

The Baby-Bag is easy-care and can be hand-washed. We do not recommend that you put the Baby-Bag into the washing machine.
