Department of Obstetrics

We provide individual, integrated care for women during pregnancy, childbirth and in the postpartum period. Self-determination, a family-oriented setting and reliable decisions are of paramount importance to us. Our extensive experience also enables us to foster the relationship between mother and child. We offer comfortable two and three-bed rooms with lovely views of the whole of Zurich for the postpartum period.
