Water birth in Switzerland

Hi everyone,

Does any of you had a water birth in Switzerland? Would you recommend it? Any advice?

Many thanks!

Re: Water birth in Switzerland

You can have a water birth in every birth clinic here (except if you have an epidural). If you can relax well and feel comfortable in warm water, then it will be a good option for you. If not, you'll still have the option to take a warm/hot shower or so. Some women feel comfortable in the bath tub during contractions but don't like to give birth there. Just listen to your body and your feelings. If you take a prenatal course, ask the midwife there, she'll be able to tell you more about it.

My wife had our daughter in a water birth at Triemli hospital in Zurich. It was fine but still painful.

While it is available everywhere we have been told that the delivery team do not like this type of birth as if there are complications it is difficult to get the mother out of the 'bath'
