During your stay, the employees of Klinik Hirslanden are there to attend to your needs and those of your baby around the clock. We are guided by your needs and wishes, and we will support you in your new daily routine. You will be gradually introduced to infant care such as nappy changing, bathing, breast-feeding/feeding by the nurse responsible for you. You will learn to recognise and respond to your baby's needs.
The concept of the rooming-in system encourages you and your baby to get to know each other and find a common rhythm. This is an ideal way for you to familiarise yourself with your baby’s needs. If you would like to relax, you can give your baby over into the care of our nursing staff, who will take excellent care of him/her in the nursery.
There is a family room available for patients with private insurance in which the baby's father and a sibling can stay overnight in the mother's room at no extra charge (support person's meals are not included). No prior registration is necessary. Further information is available here.
The visiting hours in two-bed rooms are from 2:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
In single rooms, visitors are also welcome to visit patients over lunchtime or during the evening. They also have the choice of the daily menu as well as other extensive meal and drink offers.
Inpatient breastfeeding counselling
There is always a certified breastfeeding counsellor IBLCL present on the ward from Monday to Sunday, from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm. She will visit you during your stay, support you if you have difficulty when you start to breastfeed, and answer your questions. Our nursing staff are also trained in breastfeeding counselling and are able to advise and support you professionally.
Outpatient breastfeeding counsellors
Our breastfeeding counsellors are also at your service after you have left hospital. You can reach us round the clock from Monday to Friday between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm on T +41 44 387 33 86 if you have questions or would like to arrange an appointment for a consultation. Our nurses are also available outside these times on T +41 44 387 33 80.
