Das Anstrengendste war, nicht mehr durchschlafen zu können. Ich war sehr froh um die Unterstützung der Grosseltern, so dass ich mich zwischendurch erholen konnte.
The University Hospital Basel is a leading medical center in Switzerland that operates at a high, internationally recognized standard.
The delivery and maternity wards of the Women's Clinic have access around the clock to a competent team of midwives, obstetricians, anesthesiologists, neonatologists from the University Children's Hospital as well as other specialists if needed. Trained at the cutting edge of research and technology, the team attends to the well-being and safety of the prospective family - from pregnancy to birth and the postnatal period.
For the challenging time following the birth, the team works closely with Familystart. Clients of the University Hospital Basel can use our services for free..
The University Hospital was closely involved in establishing Familystart. Esther Sackmann Rageth, former Head of Nursing at the University Hospital's specialized clinics, explains the reasons for this commitment: "It enables us to ensure continuity of care for families with newborn babies in and around Basel. The home visits have a preventive effect. They offer reassurance and prevent emergency consultations and readmissions to the hospital."
