Birth experience at Universitätsspital Zürich, USZ

Hi,
I'm a second time mum currently 21weeks pregnant and have a 16 month old. My first birth experience was not in Switzerland, just anxious to know how the birth experience would be in Universitätsspital Zürich ? I had a C csection for my first child and expecting the same again !! Anyone out there had a c section for first delivery and had a normal birth for second kid ? Any suggestion on how to manage a toddler during my hospital stay for giving birth as I am expecting no further help from my mom who was about to help me out during delivery !! Thanks all :-)

I will find out soon. About to give birth at the University Hospital within the next 2 or 3 weeks. I can't comment on birthing at the hospital yet, however, I did have to stay at the hospital overnight for several nights due to some complications and have spent a fair amount of time in the labor and delivery unit. Thus far, my experience has been overwhelmingly positive and I feel that I am getting excellent care, likely better than I would expect back home. The drs and midwives have taken ample time to explain what I can expect in delivery and make sure my intentions for what kind of birth I want are clear. I've had no issue communicating in English. Hopefully giving birth will also be positive. Wish me luck!

Hi!


I delivered twins in the UniSpital through C section about a year and a half ago. The experience was very positive. It was a planned C section, lasted less then one hour from prep to me drinking coffee and eating a croissant ))). The pain meds worked well and the personnel was very competent.


They did offer our babies nookies and sweet water and even formula, so if you don't want any of that be very clear from the beginning. They support breastfeeding but will accept if you have another choice.


Be ready though that there is a certain 'overkill' with attention. You will hardly be alone for more than an hour, but then its a University Hospital and they need to learn...


Finally, we were provided everything that was needed for babies, so no need to take anything from home. Just some comfy clothes for yourself.


PM if you want for more info and all the best!!!


P.S. Re toddler care I believe you can find the temporary nanny. But this of cause comes with the price...
