But it's not like a .. just a regular gift. She just gifted a life to our baby and I want to make something special for her. Dinner is too simple I think and we can make it without any special date
Neither is your wife's time "a regular gift". It's way more precious than the tacky shit on that dreadful website. It's probably all made in China anyway.

Seriously. Give her every evening off. That's a special gift.

Turns out your website is no good to you anyway: they don't deliver to Switzerland.

Do you ship internationally?

From this website you can make purchases for delivery to US postal addresses.
So that's settled that, then.

I want to make a surprise to my wife and thinking about giving a ring with the name of our baby or something like a bracelet with small letters, what would you prefer?
I am not sure if you are talking about a "push gift", which I saw quite often in my babycenter American forum. Culture shock and all, I found the idea absolutely tacky, so I would rather skip it.

In any case, any shop which sells jewellery - precious or otherwise - usually offers engraving options (be it Manor or the random jeweller down the road).

I gifted myself a locket to store the first lock of hair of my son. I ordered it in Etsy, and got it engraved by the artist. Worked wonderfully, and took 5 days to arrive all over from Australia.

Oh, so it is an actual thing, then?

In that case, following the spirit of the gift, I'd suggest a thumb ring sized to fit her little finger. Maybe a packet of butter to go with it...

Yes... Push Present

To each its own, but for me it feels like the epitome of commercialism. I can't shake off the idea of the biscuit being given to a dog for a good job. Or something else.

But again, this is a very personal view.

Does anyone know if I attend more than one antenatal courses, if the basic insurance will pay only 150CHF (for one course only) regardless?
"Für die Geburtsvorbereitungskurse vergütet die Krankenkasse 150 Fr., wenn der Kurs von Hebammen geleitet wird. Kurse bei Geburtsvorbereiterinnen oder Physiotherapeutinnen werden nicht von allen Kassen übernommen. Fragen Sie vor der Anmeldung unbedingt danach. Wenn Ihr Mann Sie bei dem Kurs begleitet, muss er seinen Anteil selbst bezahlen."

Basically: they will pay 150 in total, and only if the courses are provided by professional midwives, otherwise they might not be covered.

Check with your insurance.

As a side note, my husband attended the course with me (total 3 days), and we got a discounted price, instead of paying the double. Check with the hospital/midwife providing the course, if they offer partner discounts.

Aren't most people on the forum just talking to themselves?

Re: I am pregnant – What to expect when expecting in Switzerland

It's your own fault for replying to them in the first place. Anyway you've quoted much of what they said so people can get the gist of it if they want to bother to read what you wrote.

Billing and payments during pregnancy

Hi everyone,
There seems to be some confusion regarding what is covered during pregnancy.
The "general knowledge" is that the coverage starts from week 13th on, and anything before is to be paid by the parents.
I've recently found this not to be the case according to Swiss law:
https://www.admin.ch/opc/de/classified-compilation/19940073/index.html


In Art. 64 two cases are well differenciated: Before and After 13th week.
What's included before is defined in Art. 29; and after in Art 25. (Obviosly is all in German, I checked it with a swiss lawyer friend of mine)


It is correct that after week 13 all mother's illness regardless if it is related with the pregnancy is covered.
However, if it is related to pregnancy, tests and revisions should be also covered before week 13.
We called Assura "anonymously" to have this checked, and they confirmed this on the phone.


But it is mandatory that the bill is marked as motherhood instead of illness. Otherwise they claim this after the 13th week thing.


I'm not really sure the reasons behind it, but clinics/hospitals tend to mark all bills as illnes, even though they came all from a pregnancy check up. The problem with this is that we can be (are being) charged for things that by law are to be included. I had to go to the hospital myself to have these bills changed into motherhood (first I called but nothing was done). They didn't even know (apparently) this part of the law.


I still need to get the new copies of the bills so I can send them to the insurer and have them to pay me back. But I'm sure that's going to be another great story.

Hi everyone,

Just so you know how the story continues, I'm starting getting the money back.

So there you go, bills as "Pregnancy" and it is included.

Regards.
