Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

I am 31 weeks pregnant and trying to decide where to give birth. Nyon is closer but I haven't heard much about it - and what I have heard/read is not very positive. I've heard a lot more about Morges, mostly positive, but wondering if its really worth going that bit further.

Re: Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

I delivered in Morges 9 month ago and it was perfect. Nyon would be also closer for us but I booked a tour in Morges and I liked it so much. Very, very friendly and professionell staff.
A friend delivered in Nyon twice and also liked it.
Book a tour and see what you like more.

Re: Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

First, make sure your Ob/Gyn is giving you the option of both, often they just work out of one hospital and you may not have the choice.

Saying that, I was not too impressed with Nyon, although I have no experience with Morges to compare, only private cliniques in GVA, which I would recommend above Nyon. They have however recently expanded the hospital at Nyon, so the facilities etc. may have improved.

Re: Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

Hesitated about Morges at first as thought it was too small and quiet....but went there in the end. Absolutely no complaints. It was like being in a hotel (even on basic insurance)!! Midwives were all so nice and supportive. Most of them spoke English as well, which was a nice surprise.

Re: Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

Morges. Nyon maternity was bad. All my friends who gave birth in Morges were super satisfied, most people, including me, who gave birth were not too thrilled with Nyon maternity ward, for various reasons. They do have a high turnover of staff, though, so things might have improved, especially now, when they outsourse a lot of specialists and interns from Geneva.

Re: Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

ATTENTION - DO NOT GO TO NYON HOSPITAL
Do not go to Nyon hospital unless you want a c-section or episiotomy and possibly a traumatic birth. This reply is not based only on my terrible experience. I do not know a single person who had a good experience at Nyon and I know at least two who are severely traumatized. One of them chose not to have kids again.

For me, I took the tour and they seemed to indicate they support the idea of a natural birth. This could not be further from the truth. I must have been the first women to say no to an epidural (they asked 5 times in 8 hours and after were still upset I did not want an epidural). When the big moment came, they completely disregarded my desire to stay upright. Four people physically restrained me into my back, forced my legs onto the stir-ups and the doctor gave me an episiotomy. There was no need, my baby was not large and they gave me a total of 5 pushes and 20 mins to get the baby out after fully dilated. The midwife pushed on my stomach and was very rough and the doctor was out of the 1960's and thought episiotomies avoided tears and completely disregarded modern advances in women's health. They claimed the baby was in distress but there was no real evidence. The after care is also terrible. They do not support breastfeeding and could try to convince you to use formula and/or you do not have enough breast milk or something else that is not true. The beginning of breastfeeding can be difficult, go somewhere else if you want to be supported.

I repeat - think again before going to Nyon Hospital for any reason. Go somewhere else.

Re: Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

First child born in Nyon, Emergency C-section. Second, in Morges. Experiences at both hospitals were worlds apart - Morges is better, by a landslide. Different approach/philosophy that really distinguishes Morges and I would hazard a guess that the C-section rates in Nyon are among the highest in the region - whether it's down to lack of experience, fear or insurance reimbursement they have an unusually high number of c-sections performed in Nyon.

Too posh to push? What do you mean? Nobody wants an emergency c-section. For me, they were threatening me with a c-section several times, claiming the labour was failing to progress and yet I had a natural birth in the end after fighting off the c-section. I would bet a lot of women had unnecessary c-sections at Nyon based on my experience.

I was actually replying to FCBarca's post (which is why i quoted it...) as to why C-section's were so high in Nyon.

Too posh to push is not about emergency c-sections. It's about planned c-sections. I don't like the phrase, but I think women should be able to choose the type of birth they want, c-section or not. Old article explaining the up-and-coming trend of the time here:

I highlighted the bits i was referring too to make it clear.

An emergency c-section is just that, an emergency which could happen at any establishment, world wide. I guess some hospitals go this avenue quicker than others, it depends on a lot of independent but linked factors.

That was my point, emergent c-sections have their place when appropriate but due to the high number at Nyon hospital my bet is that these are not truly emergency situations. The great majority of people I have known over the past 4 years who have given birth in Nyon, the rate of c-sections is unusually high - cannot possibly be all emergencies

Re: Nyon Hospital or Morges Hospital for birth

It's important to know that Morges has expanded its paediatrics ward in the last year. I've given birth twice in Morges, and had a great experience the first time. However, my third daughter (second delivery in Morges) had a health issue that was undetected in the womb. This was in early 2016, when there was only a maternity ward and a very small paediatrics ward (in a different part of the hospital). My daughter was I were separated soon after her birth, as I had to stay in the maternity ward to recover from delivering a 4.5k baby (I could barely stand). The staff was inexperienced and ill equipped to deal with anything out of the ordinary. They hummed and hawed and waffled about what to do with her, until she was transferred to the CHUV in an emergency at two days old.

In the context of the larger renovations at the Morges hospital, maternity and paediatrics are now right next to each other, and the've added a NICU. There's also a separate emergency department for kids on the main floor. All of this opened last November. We've stayed in paediatrics twice since then and I can say that the service is much improved.
