Rapid test / Stay

COVID-19 symptoms when entering the delivery room

If you show symptoms of a cold when you enter the delivery room, we will carry out a COVID-19 rapid test to protect you, your baby and the staff. Regardless of the result, you will be cared for in the maternity ward and the postpartum ward.

Birthing room

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 be present at the birth. If the test result is positive and there are no symptoms or complaints, the partner can be present at the birth, provided that hygiene measures are observed.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone on +41 44 387 35 61.

Postpartum department

If you have a positive test result and your partner has tested negative, he or she can visit you on the postpartum. In this case, you will not be able to receive any further visits.

Otherwise, our regular visiting hours apply. You will find these under the heading "After the birth".

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone +41 44 387 33 83 or +41 44 387 35 61.

Overnight stay for fathers/partners on the postpartum bed

Partners or siblings are welcome at the postpartum and can stay in the same room again. Learn more about upgrade options.

Individual tour

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.
