Natural birth with comfort

The Geburtshaus Zollikerberg is the right place for women who have a healthy pregnancy and who wish to have a natural and low-intervention delivery. We place great importance on the well-being and safety of you and your child.

Start of counselling
and pregnancy

As midwives, we accompany you with empathy and holistic care from the beginning of your pregnancy or at the latest from the 32nd week of your pregnancy. The consultations take place in our birth centre in Zollikerberg, at our midwifery practice or at your home.

It is very important to us to already care for you during your pregnancy in order to build mutual trust and to know your needs and wishes as well as those of your family.

Labour
and delivery

Image

The health of you and your child is our top priority at all times. With our broad expertise in midwifery and our many years of experience, we accompany you during the labour in a protected environment, at your own pace and with plenty of room for self-determination.

We are there for you throughout the birth process and can thus devote ourselves entirely to you and your companion. Towards the end of the birth a second midwife always joins to help with the delivery.

Should a transfer to a hospital be necessary, we are close to the Zollikerberg Hospital and can be at the gynaecological clinic within a short time to provide you with the support you need.

Postpartum
and lactation

In order to give you the opportunity to recover in the first days after the delivery and to enjoy your time together as a family, you and your accompanying person will stay in our comfortable and large family room for three days.

During your first days in the birth centre, we will visit you to answer any questions you may have. We will support you with breastfeeding and postnatal care and examine your child.

During your stay you can also reach us by phone. During the day, a hostess is in the house and will look after your well-being. During the night, a specialist will be at your side.

Before you leave, we recommend an examination by the paediatrician of the paediatric department of the Zollikerberg Hospital.
