Introducing the maternity ward at Bethanien

<p class=

500 babies are born in our private hospital every year. Nevertheless, we are committed to providing unique and individual support for each birth, so that it is tailored to the needs of the mother, father and child.

Our qualified team of midwives looks after you before, during and after your birth, always in cooperation with experienced nurses. Our maternity ward meets the needs of mothers and babies in all areas.

Information evenings for expectant parents

An information evening is held on the first Monday of every month. You will receive a lot of information about childbirth, our range of courses, childbirth options and family care in the postnatal period.

You will also have the opportunity to ask your gynaecologist, paediatricians, anaesthetists and midwives your personal questions. A tour of the maternity ward will give you an insight into the delivery room and the postnatal rooms.

After your registration we will welcome you at the reception of the Privatklinik Bethanien.

Time: 19:00-20:30 o'clock
Place: Privatklinik Bethanien

Health screening for your child - a unique opportunity

Childbirth offers a unique opportunity to take preventive health care for your child and the whole family.

Following the birth, we offer parents-to-be the opportunity to store stem cells from their child's umbilical cord.

In the only private biobank in Switzerland that has the important FACT-NetCord accreditation, these are stored safely and for the long term.
