Re: Birth experience in Swiss hospitals/clinics -advice/tips/stories?

Hi, I am in exactly the same situation, so did not want to start a new thread. I am hoping that someone will provide more information on this subject.

My husband and I are aslo expecting our first baby in March. We are moving to Geneva in late February/early March provided we find a clinic in Geneva. Otherwise, we stay here till May. It's a dicision we have to make. We are moving from Japan (we are not Japanese), and I urgently need to know, if there is a midwifery clinic in Geneva that will let me have a natural nonmedicated birth, in WATER.

I called Geneva Family Planning Centre (Tel: +41 (0)22 372 55 00) and they said it is not very popular in Switzerland. I guess natural birth in a hospital is ok, but not a water birth. Does anyone have any information on the subject or a name of a specific clinic? It will be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Oliya.
