Das Anstrengendste war, nicht mehr durchschlafen zu können. Ich war sehr froh um die Unterstützung der Grosseltern, so dass ich mich zwischendurch erholen konnte.
Finding a midwife
We recommend you to find a midwife before the birth - preferably two or three months before the due date. You can search for a qualified midwife near you on www.baslerhebamme.ch.
If you would like help finding a midwife, please contact our helpline. We will refer you to a midwife who will advise you during pregnancy and care for you postnatally at home.
Helpline 0848 622 622
You can take advantage of our helpline while you are still pregnant. The helpline is available daily from 8:00-20:00. An experienced midwife will be on call to help you.
For clients of the Women's Health Clinic University Hospital Basel and Bethesda Hospital, finding a midwife and receiving consultations via the helpline is free (excluding local phone charges).
For all other families in the Basel area, referral to a midwife costs CHF 50. A helpline consultation costs CHF 30 for up to 15 minutes (CHF 20 for each additional 10 minutes).
The home visits made by the midwife are fully covered by the basic health insurance.
