giving birth in Bern

I wonder which hospital, Lindenspital or Inselspital in Bern is more prestigious/favourite for pregnant women especially for birth giving?
Can anyone share experience when giving birth in Swiss hospitals, eg. what do one have to bring to the hospital when giving birth? Would the basic insurance pay for 3 or 10 visits of midwifes?

thanks in advance

You need to bring a take home outfit for the day baby leaves, Everything you need will be supplied in the hospital. Your insurance will cover all medical costs, treatments, doctor, nurse and midwife visits. Just bring comfortable clothes for yourself, and good luck! when is the big day?

Re: giving birth in Bern

Your insurance pays for everything. But you must get health insurance for the new baby long before the expected day!
If there are birth problems they won't pay you! Contact your health insurance tomorrow! You don't have to have the same company, but most mothers do, for the convenience.

If you have the "Family Buchlein" then take it with you. If not, get one at your "Gemeinde" house, where you registered.
