Rooming-in

To help you "find your feet" again and to start bonding after the birth, it is most important that you and your baby are together as much as possible after the birth. The process of adjusting to one another and mother and baby getting to know each other is easier and more natural if mother and baby can spend their days and nights together. The 24-hour rooming in also helps integrate the father more strongly within the young family.

 

Breast-feeding

Breast-feeding is a process that has to be learned. It makes sense to find out about this during the pregnancy. Breast milk gives your baby the ideal nutrition for its needs. We would like to support and advise you with our specialist knowledge during this learning period. We base this on the UNICEF recommendations for successful breast-feeding. It is important to know your needs and those of your baby. If you would like peace and quiet for yourself and your baby during the first attempts at nursing, a comfortable breast-feeding room is at your disposal. If you cannot or do not want to breast-feed you can rest assured that we will provide skilled support and appropriate advice for feeding your baby.

 

You will find further information on the subject of breast-feeding here.

 

Ambulatory breast-feeding counselling

Our certified breast-feeding counsellors, IBCLCs (International Board Certified Lactation Consultant) will be pleased to give you advice after you have left the clinic. Possible topics for advice are:

  • Preparing for breast-feeding during pregnancy (preparing the nipples, breast massage, discussing the breast-feeding experience)
  • Breast-feeding during the first few weeks after the birth (breast and nipple problems, regulating the amount of breast milk, babies with suckling problems, daily rhythm, failure to thrive)
  • Breast-feeding and work (planning the return to work, breast milk pumps and other aids, diet)
  • Breast-feeding for older infants (establishing a diet, breast-feeding period, weaning)
