Postpartum

Going home after birth is an important step for both parents and child to recover and grow in their own environment. The first few weeks after childbirth, also known as the postpartum period, are a critical time for the health and well-being of both mother and child.

Postpartum care at home offers a valuable opportunity for mothers and newborns to have a safe and supportive environment in which they can all recover and get to know each other.

During this time, I will accompany you with regular visits to your home and support you in all matters.

The content of such visits varies greatly, as it is very important to me to respond to your individual needs. Possible components can be:

  • Checking the physical and mental health and condition of mother and child (blood test if necessary)

  • Introduction to baby care (baby bath, diaper changing, body care, massage)

  • Advice and support for breastfeeding/nutrition and milk production

  • Advice and support in dealing with pain or discomfort

  • Assisting in overcoming difficulties related to the baby, such as crying, sleeping problems and growth process

  • Advice on avoiding complications during childbirth (regression)

  • Advice on family planning and contraception during breastfeeding.

During this time, 10-16 visits take place during 56 days (8 weeks) after the birth, which is fully covered by health insurance.

If it is a first birth, premature birth, multiple birth or caesarean section, a maximum of 16 home visits will be madecovered by the insurance. The exact number of visits is agreed individually with the midwife.

costs on call
As your midwife, I am available to you during the confinement period and can be reached practically around the clock. Please note that this extended service is not covered by basic insurance. Some municipalities assume the costs for the on-call service in the amount ofCHF 115.
 

If the community where you live does not cover these costs, you will receive a separate invoice from me as the midwife. Depending on your supplemental insurance, you may be able to submit this bill to your health insurance company for reimbursement.
