You are welcome at Klinik Hirslanden no matter your insurance class. You can also book various upgrades to make your stay as pleasant as possible. Supplementary insurance policies of your health insurance company cover additional services related to pregnancy, birth and the postpartum period.
Supplementary insurance – taking out a policy can make sense even before pregnancy
For women who wish to have children, it makes sense to check whether they would like to take out supplementary insurance for pregnancy and hospitalisation. Depending on the health insurance company, additional prenatal tests, additional ultrasound examinations and prenatal or postnatal classes are covered by supplementary insurance.
Please note that many insurance policies have a grace period, i.e. a waiting period of nine months or more. The supplementary insurance must therefore be taken out some time before pregnancy. The best thing to do is to contact your health insurance company to check the different options.

Privately insured women enjoy the privacy of a spacious single room after they give birth. Overnight accommodation for an accompanying person and a sibling is free of charge. In addition, you have a free choice of doctor and can give birth here with your gynaecologist, provided this doctor is accredited with us.
Semi-privately insured persons also spend the postpartum period in a single room. Your accompanying person and a sibling can stay overnight with you for an additional CHF 150 per night, incl. breakfast. Please note that all other services correspond to those of the semi-private insurance class.
Maternity patients with basic insurance spend their postpartum period in a double room. The on-duty doctor will be assigned to you in the 34th week of pregnancy.
The fees listed are valid for both natural and Caesarean births.
Here at Klinik Hirslanden, you can choose between a single or double room for your postpartum stay, depending on the insurance category. All rooms have a baby changing table and are comfortably furnished.
Depending on your supplementary insurance, the costs for room upgrades in the postpartum period are covered. Below you will find an overview of the different offers and costs:
- Basic to private: CHF 11'500 per stay
- Semi-private to private: CHF 3'500 per stay
Please consult your doctor if you wish to upgrade your insurance class. The doctor's surgery will then submit the necessary application to the hospital. The fees listed are valid for both natural and Caesarean births. Where there is a change in insurance class for mothers with basic insurance who experience a multiple birth, a flat rate of CHF 1'200 will be added for each additional child.
These prices also apply if a longer recuperation period is necessary for medical reasons after the birth. If you require inpatient care prior to giving birth, the insurance upgrade will be calculated individually.
Your baby also needs to be insured. There is the option of registering with the health insurance fund before the birth. At the latest, however, you must take out basic insurance for your child up to three months after the birth.
Our midwives, doctors and patient scheduling team at Klinik Hirslanden are on hand to advise. We will be happy to answer your questions by telephone on +41 44 387 24 21 from Monday to Friday, between 8:00 and 17:00.
