Frequently Asked Questions

A birth centre is an out-of-hospital facility run by experienced midwives to care for women during pregnancy, birth, the postpartum and breastfeeding.

In a preliminary discussion with the midwife, we will evaluate whether a birth in a birth centre is an option for you.

During the birth, you will be accompanied by your midwife team and receive intensive personal care. With little medical or technical effort, we enable you to experience a self-determined, natural birth. In addition to relaxation and breathing exercises, we use various complementary medical methods and take care of your well-being. The rooms in the Geburtshaus Zollikerberg are bright and friendly, so that you feel comfortable and secure. They are equipped with various aids such as birthing stools, exercise balls, towels and a wooden birthing bathtub. The family rooms are large and comfortably furnished so that you can move around freely.

The midwives’ competence includes guiding the physiological birth and recognising deviations. However, should you or your child need further support, it is possible to get medical help quickly and safely from the Zollikerberg hospital next door or to transfer you there.

Childbirth at the birth centre is covered by your health insurance. The flat rate of CHF 800 must be paid by the mother herself.
