The long wait is over: it’s nearly time to welcome your child into the world. Those nine months of hoping and worrying will soon be rewarded with a beautiful little baby.
Giving birth in Switzerland
If you are planning to fly, you should aim to be in Switzerland by the time you reach the 36th week of pregnancy. For health reasons, some airlines do not allow pregnant women to fly after this time. The airline may also require you to provide a medical certificate. Your gynaecologist will gladly help you organise the necessary paperwork.
Please let us know your due date well in advance, so that the necessary check-ups can be arranged with your chosen gynaecologist. The check-ups are usually scheduled every two weeks from the time you arrive in Switzerland until you give birth. Overnight stays at the hospital are not necessary. For your first check-up, we kindly ask you to bring all the medical reports you have received so far during your pregnancy, as well as any other relevant medical documentation.
If you would like to visit your chosen hospital in advance, we will happily organise an introductory meeting including a tour of the hospital. Please contact the Hirslanden International team to arrange an appointment.
