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

Hi Oliya,

I can't help with Geneva specifics since I live near Zurich but I can tell you that water births in Switzerland are possible. I know of at least 2 hospitals in Zurich that have the facilities for this so I would presume that the same would be the case in Geneva. Your best bet would probably be to check with the hospitals directly.

Also I don't want to burst your bubble being a first time mother but it is not always possible to have the kind of birth you want. Things like water baths for the birth are usually on a first come first served basis and not bookable in advance for obvious reasons.

Good luck with the birth and don't be afraid to ask for painkillers during labour if you feel you need them even if it is the last thing you think you are going to want now
