After birth

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.
