Giving birth in Zollikerberg

Hi all,

I am due in September with first my first pregnancy and would like to know if any of you have experienced giving birth in Zollikerberg hospital,Zurich

And is it a private hospital,as my insurance company told us that ,we are eligible only for government hospitals for the insurance claim.

I am also planning to have a visit to the hospitals before i could finalize on it,and would like to know what are the things that need to be taken care or check list for the birth or labour.

Re: Giving birth in Zollikerberg

Zollikerberg is a public hospital, and its maternity ward has a really good reputation. My impression is that it is viewed as the preferred pubic hospital on that side of Lake Zurich for births. My wife gave birth there twice, and due to complicated pregnancies, ended up spending 2 months cumulatively in the maternity ward there. Based on this wealth of experience, she would highly recommend it (as would I, for what it's worth). Very nice and compasionate staff who are accustomed to dealing with foreigners and English-speakers (though not all nurses are fluent, they are happy to do whatever it takes to communicate clearly), manageable size, relatively modern facilities and nice grounds.
