Re: Insurance Coverage for Pregnancy and Birth

Don't forget that different insurers might offer different packages.

@ any and all women going through birth in CH for the first time, good luck, but remember to pre-register your child with their insurance company well ahead of the day. Ideally before it reaches "viable" age.

This means that on or soon after the birth you need to complete a little form with date or birth and birth details and send to the insurer. But insurance will have been set up before hand (this does not cost you anything extra).

This way if there are any complications with the birth - and sorry, this does happen - your child will be fully covered with no exclusions.

Also, while I think about it, if you are having a planned c-section, try to get early in the month - health insurance, and thus fees, covers the whole month, irrespective of if born on the 1st or the 31st. What a cheapskate I am.
