Thanks for the replies Aurora and Crumbs.

Crumbs, Would you know the procedure for having a hospital visit (just to see the place) at Zollikerberg?

Spital Zollikerberg has open parents' evenings 6-8 times a year. The dates are here., you can just go along to these. The presentations are given in German, so it may be better to call them and get a separate appointment. Also considering the next date is 29.6., which may be a little too close to your due date (?).

Their phone number is 044-397 21 11. By calling, you can also check their level of English....

Re: Expecting first child : Hospital Recos needed

Hi There

I had my fourth child !!! in the Paracelcus hospital in Richterswil. It was wonderful with really great helpful doctors and nurses. I had the other three kids in the U.S. and it was so different here, much better in my opinion. I would for sure recommend this hospital. I did visit the birthing rooms etc to see it all before hand, some very interesting stuff !!. All the doctors speak English but the nurses don't.

Best of luck to you.

Re: Expecting first child : Hospital Recommedations needed

Hi,

we recently had our second child and we went to Unispital-Zurich.
That was good and took great care.

You seem to be Indian and not sure if you know about the procedures of getting a birth certificate for the child. That is the most complex procedure next to child birth. If you do not know it already, please ask me and I can share our experience.

Our second son was born on Nov 13, 2006 and we are still working to get the birth certificate.

regards
-ilango

Re: Zurich Maternity - Hirlsanden or Im Park

Hi!!

A quick query on Hirslanden - we have a basic insurance cover with Sanitas. Would that cover delivery at Hirslanden - would any of you have any idea?

No AFIK you would not be covered. The Hirslanden is classed as private therefore you would need private insurance to cover the costs. They do sometimes take patients with MINIMA insurance if you pay the extra costs.

For basic insurance, Zollikerberg hospital is quite good and it is not far from where you live.

Re: Expecting first child : Hospital Recos needed

Hi Irishlass - this is my first post, so apologies if I'm posting in the wrong place, or in the wrong way - but you mention that you had your 4th child in Richterswil. I'm currently looking for a gynaecologist/obstretician in the area...I don't suppose you could recommend one, could you?
Many thanks

There is already a thread on this in Family Matters.

Re: Expecting first child : Hospital Recommedations needed

Hi Odie

I used the gyno's in the paracelcus hospital. I can't remember their names ............that's what having 4 kids does to you !!! There was an older man and then one in his late 40's, both were great doctors and I was very much at ease with them. Not sure if you can speak German but the younger doctor spoke English really well while the older one could only speak some English.

Hope this helps

Slan

Maternity Insurance

Hello
I'm hoping someone might be able to help with a fix I've found myself in.
Someone else filled in my health insurance application 2 years ago on my behalf due to my difficulties in German. I am now 3 months pregnant and didn't realise that we had only applied for the basic maternity insurance package. I'm very keen to go semi-private, but can't seem to pay for an upgrade of package. Does anyone know how I can upgrade? Long shot I know!

Congratulations! AFAIK once that egg is fertilised there is no changing the policy . To be honest though I don't think semi-private is worth the money as you would have to share a room anyway & most maternity units have rooms that only take 2 or 3 people. You can always enquire at the hospital you are planning on giving birth at about paying the extra for a private room.

Re: Zurich Maternity - Hirlsanden or Im Park

Me...only basic insurance. And delivered at Zurich University Hospital. Beautiful labour room and was even offered the option of waterbirth. Superb midwives, doctors and nurses. Admitted to a 2 beds room but was alone the whole 5 days...so that was almost private . Superb lake view from the room. Baby's changing/bath/diaper room just next door. Babysitting round-the-clock. Various meal options. Breastfeeding consultations etc etc. So, to sum up things...I have no problems with basic insurance. Perhaps I was lucky at that time .

A Swiss colleague of mine also has only basic insurance and delivered by Cesarian at the Zürich University Hospital. She had only good things to say, is now pregnant with her second child, and still with only basic insurance. Also, she's from the French part of CH, and knows only a little Swiss German, but language was not a problem for her. So, I'd also not worry so much about your insurance coverage.
