Das Anstrengendste war, nicht mehr durchschlafen zu können. Ich war sehr froh um die Unterstützung der Grosseltern, so dass ich mich zwischendurch erholen konnte.
Bethesda Hospital is a private hospital in Basel and belongs to "The Swiss Leading Hospitals". Since 2013, the modern maternity clinic has provided extensive expertise, safety, the highest level of comfort and comprehensive services in a welcoming atmosphere. Deliveries take place either with the in-house team of doctors or with an affiliated doctor and a hospital midwife. You can also choose to give birth with the support of an affiliated midwife. Our delivery unit is open to all insurance classes regardless of the canton of residence.
Since May 2019, we have also been offering a fully mifwife-led delivery in our "Haus der Geburt Bethesda".
Support for the prospective family begins long before the birth with prenatal classes or courses on acupunture during pregnancy; it continues when the baby is here with services such as breastfeeding consultations or postnatal exercises. The team of the maternity ward makes sure the future parents are well informed and offers services specifically designed to help them prepare for the birth. When the baby is here, nurses, midwives and a lactation consultant offer the mother personalized support and advise her on the care of her baby.
For the first few weeks at home, clients of Bethesda Hospital can use the Familystart services free of charge. "Familystart reassures women that they will be well cared for at home and that they can talk to someone directly in an emergency," says Ute Richter, head of the family ward at Bethesda Hospital.
