“I knew from the first contact onwards that I could feel safe here. The midwives encouraged me to trust in my body. It was both my heart and my instinct that opted for the birthing centre.”

Nadja Steiner

“Initially, I was very sceptical about the idea of giving birth at a birthing centre. The midwives already addressed my fatherly concerns in a very effective way during the preliminary consultation and were able to allay my fears straight away. Looking back, having our children at Geburtshaus Zürcher Oberland was the best decision.”

Cyril Eigenheer

“My first two children were born in hospital. By my third pregnancy, it was clear to me that I didn’t want an epidural this time round. The first consultation at the birthing centre reaffirmed our decision to give birth here. And we were richly rewarded. Bringing our third child into the world in the peaceful atmosphere of the birthing centre and with the empathetic support of our midwife was a wonderful experience.”

Kerstin Hüttermann

“Welcoming our daughter into the world in peace and love was such a beautiful moment. We were able to settle in without any stress or hustle and bustle around us. The moments when the midwives allowed our daughter the time she needed to find the nipple herself and when they showed us how to do baby-led potty training were very impressive. We regularly recall this wonderful birth experience.”

Martina and Thomas Deim

“My second birth at the Bäretswil birthing centre was just how you want childbirth to be: it took place in an environment in which everyone helped to make it a natural, safe and loving experience. I had complete faith in the midwives, which gave me the freedom I needed to relax at such an incredible time and focus on what I had to do.”

Natural birth in safe hands

Pregnancy, childbirth and the postnatal and nursing periods are natural processes, they also involve big changes and raise many questions. We provide families with empathetic, expert support during this intense and exciting time.
