After Birth - Postnatal Ward

After the birth of your child on our labour ward, we will accompany you to your room on our postnatal ward. Our qualified nursing staff, midwives and doctors will expertly and attentively take care of both you and your baby. You will spend the first few days on the postnatal ward together with your baby, where you will be able to get to know each other.

The postnatal ward has been renovated to meet the needs of new mothers and their partners. In addition to 20 rooms with furnishings that can accommodate a range of individual needs, mothers and those accompanying them have a lounge, breastfeeding room and nursery at their disposal. The rooms have oak parquet floors, and an aubergine tone was selected for the furniture to provide a sense of warmth and comfort.

The soft green tones and spring colours symbolise new beginnings and embarking on the journey of life. Privately insured patients will enjoy the range of furnishings in the room, including a baby changing table that lets you can handle your infant in the privacy of your own room. Persons accompanying the new mother are also welcome to stay in the family rooms, which have an additional sofa bed. Klinik Im Park also has a family suite with space for the new mother, another accompanying person and one sibling child.


Care during and after your stay

We are guided by your needs and support you in your new daily routine. We are also there for you after your stay and offer you various outpatient care options.


Your obstetrician will visit you daily, will be available to answer your questions and will discuss further care with the nursing staff.


Your baby will be examined by the paediatrician after the birth and at the end of your stay. Your paediatrician will also visit you regularly during your stay in the hospital to ensure your physical well-being and that of your child. He will be happy to answer your questions and, together with the nursing staff, will decide on the further care of your child. If a baby requires special medical care or monitoring, he or she is in good hands with our paediatrician and specialist nursing staff around the clock (24 hours a day). Our medical technology infrastructure guarantees the greatest possible safety for newborns. The maternity unit maintains close cooperation with the Children's Hospital and the University Hospital Zurich. This means that in the event of complications we can guarantee rapid intensive medical care for your newborn child.
