Zurich (kreis 6) Recommendations for and good experience with a midwife in Zurich?

Just wondering whether anyone has a recommendation for a midwife in Zurich (preferably around kreis 6 or close to the city)? Would prefer to use someone a member has recently had a positive experience with rather than choosing blindly off the hebammen list.

I now there are a few threads on this, but am looking for more recent and more personal recommendations.

Would also be helpful to know whether the midwife was happy to adjust the dates of visits (from consecutive to spaced out a litte). This is our first baby, so any advice wold be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks in advance

We've had Franziska from http://www.hebammenpraxis-zuerich.ch/ (Nordstrasse in Kreis 6). Highly recommendable, down to earth and non-esoteric (rare among midwifes in Switzerland). She's also happy to space out the dates of visit.

I expect folk who have used midwife recently are too occupied with their new offspring to come on here often. You've only given us 12 hours. A 'bump' might make a lot more sense after a day or two.

Point taken am expecting our little one any day now, hence the perhaps overly enthusiastic bump. Am a little behind the times on midwife organization

In which case, I apologise for my remark and wish you all the best.

Fingers crossed and all that.

No problem at all Should have put a feeler out for recommendations a while ago. Will keep my fingers crossed that someone's baby is sleeping soon so they can tell eke about their wonderful midwife!

I had a fabulous midwife but she is not speeking English!
She lives in the centar of Zurich, so Kreis six is close to her.
I do not know what is your mother tongue, but Jelica (maybe u can find her in this web site) is so, so nice.

All the best and go sleep!

Re: Zurich (kreis 6) Recommendations for and good experience with a midwife in Zurich

Hi Lisa,

I had Lucie Hrdina visiting me and the baby. She lives in kreis 10 very close to kreis 6.
Nice, kind, competent, helpful and speaks very good English. She was absolutely fine with spacing the visits.

I have also heard good things about Franziska, but haven't experienced personally.

All the best!
