Which maternity to choose in Zurich canton?

Hi everyone,

I just moved to Zurich canton and I am 6 months pregnant; I have to choose the maternity and I would definitely need some advice; should I go for the University Hospital or choose a private clinik? In case I choose a public hospital, should I contract services of a doula?

Thanks a lot,

What insurance coverage do you have? Since you only moved here & are already pregnant you will only have basic coverage & have to pay private yourself.

Welcome to the forum and congrats!

If you decide on a doula, you might be keen to visit this local site.

thanks :-)

the insurance is a bit complicated because I am transferring my social security rights from my country to Switzerland (in progress), so I do not know if it will cover in the end the private part; i have to check that, definitely; but irrespective of the insurance matter, what would you suggest?

Hello and congrats!

Without the insurane question, I would reccommend Klinik I'm Park I gave birth there and they were really great, plus very much into natural stufff despite being a hospital.

BUT

Realistically, wihtout private insurance, that will cost in the 10 of thousands and if it were me I would not pay that as what you get mostly in the kliniks is personal pamepring versus real better medical care (better food, toiletries, restaurant etc)

I have had quite a few friends very happy with Triemli!

Cheers,

K
