Quoting from the same link

‘But if the birth happens unexpectedly, the EHIC will cover the cost of all medical treatment linked to the birth for mother and baby.’

Very difficult to prove it was not unexpected, especially as OP has family in Switzerland.

Anyway it seems EHIC cards are no longer valid in EFTA countries (including Switzerland) from 01.01.2021 (unless you were already in a respective country before then)
Sure but if you have a plane ticket at 36 weeks and a return when the baby is 4 months pretty obvious what you set out to do. It's always the average common sense that prevails and if you travel highly pregnant then birth is not "unexpected".
