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

I found the gynie through the local hospital's website so hopefully it should be quite seemless. I don't get to choose hospital with my insurance so fingers crossed this was the right way forward. Is there anything else I need to think of do you know (other than eating/drinking right and reading as much stuff as I can) or should I just sit tight for that first gynie meeting?
I arrived here in Switzerland when I was four months pregnant. I found a ob/gyn from a recommendation of one of my husband's work colleagues. I checked out the hospitals he was affiliated with and I also checked CHUV and Morges. All were happy to show me around their facilities. You really can't go wrong wherever you choose to go.

I noticed that the private clinic, La Source, were advertising that they were only charging the basic insurance rate (as opposed to having to pay for the upgrade).

In the end, I really like my obstetrician and wanted him at the birth so went with one of the hospital's he works at.

Good luck. Exciting times for you!
