Looking for an English-speaking midwife in Vevey!

Hi,
I am 12 weeks pregnant with my first child and living near Vevey. I have a great doctor but am looking for recommendations for English-speaking pre-natal classes and midwives. Any tips on the best time to start pre-natal classes?

Thanks for any/all advice!

I think you have to go see her, I dont have a contact detail but the head midwife in Vevey hospital i Irish and I have heard she is great. - I think I am late sending this but if not, good luck.

If you have found some one fantastic yourself and you forward the contact details on to me?. I am also newly pregnant and am in the search! As i said, I dont have the contact details of the lady in Vevey.

From my experience there are two English-speaking mid-wives at the Samaritan hospital in Vevey, but they are hospital based so I assume they don't come to your home post-birth.
The lady I used has now retired, she is called Rita and pretty much all the English speakers in the area that I know also used her.
Behind the station in Vevey is the mid-wife (sage femme) centre where I had some ante-natal lessons. You could contact them to find another English speaker.
Hope that helps abit.

Yeah they do come for home visits, we had them. Give the samaritain a call and ask they will put you through.
