Welcome Paul

A couple of things to consider. I assume your girlfriend is also a UK/EU national. If so, then you'll be assessed as two single people and not a couple and she'll need to prove she can support herself while she's here. Or the alternative is that you apply for a concubine permit for her in which case you'll have to agree to financially support her for 5 years. If she's not a UK/EU national, then you'll definitely have to apply for either the concubine permit or for one under family reunification. If her nationality requires her to need a visa to enter Switzerland long term then she'll need to apply for this at the Swiss embassy/consulate in the UK.

Residency is easy for UK/EU nationals, you both go to the town hall of the place you're living in and register as residents. No idea on proof of single status though.

These links may help:

You will both need to get Swiss health insurance as soon as possible with a birth due.

You shouldn't need any of that.

When you arrive, go and register. You will need a work contract OR proof that you have enough money to live off OR maybe your girlfriend can sign to say she will support you.

You will also need your passport, passport photos, maybe a birth certificate (less than 6 months old), I was asked for proof that I wasn't paying tax in the UK anymore, which was a pain, but I don't think this is normal.

Proof of Single Status; #1 son had to produce that a few years ago before he could get married in Switzerland, he simply went along to the Consulate in Geneva and asked for it (cost about 30 francs I think). So any British Consulate or Embassy here should be able to do the same, not sure where you'd get one in the UK though, here; https://www.gov.uk/general-register-office maybe?
