COVID-19 rapid test on entry to the delivery room
To protect you, your baby and the staff, we carry out a COVID-19 rapid test when you enter the delivery room. Regardless of the result, you will be cared for in the labour ward and on the postpartum ward.
If your COVID-19 test result is positive, your partner will also be tested. If your partner's test result is negative, he or she can attend the birth. If the test result is positive, unfortunately the partner cannot be present at the birth and must go into quarantine at home.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone on +41 44 387 35 61.
If you have a positive test result, you will not be able to receive a visit in the postpartum ward.
If you have a negative test result, a maximum of 2 visitors per day are allowed in the maternity ward (partners and siblings count as visitors). The visiting hours for the husband/partner are not limited and depend on the insurance class. The second visit can be received for a maximum of one hour.
Your health and that of your baby is very important to us. We thank you for your understanding.
Fathers/partners are welcome at the postpartum and can stay overnight in the same room again. At the moment, overnight accommodation for the sibling is not possible.
For an individual visit to our maternity ward, please contact our midwives about one hour before your desired visit on T 044 387 35 61 (also in the evenings and at weekends). The occupancy of our birthing rooms cannot be planned, which is why we are unable to arrange fixed viewing appointments. We look forward to seeing you.
