Pregnancy

All services are covered by your health insurance.

If you have private insurance, please enquire with your insurer.

We speak fluent German and English.

Getting in touch

The right midwife for this long journey is the most important thing. That's why you'll first get to know us without obligation, receive all the important information from us and feel inside yourself to see if we are the right companion for you. 

The initial consultation is only paid for once by most health insurance companies. So if you have already seen a midwife, it is possible that this will be charged to you privately. You can try to submit the private invoice to your health insurance company.

Pregnancy confirmation

We are happy to officially confirm your pregnancy. To do this, we will take your blood, conduct a detailed medical history interview and create your personalised maternal health passport. 

prenatal care

You are welcome to come to us for your antenatal care. We take plenty of time for this and check your health and that of your child. We carry out all routine examinations, such as

  • Checking your blood pressure and pulse

  • urinanalysis 

  • Abdominal circumference, fundus position, symphysis-fundus distance

  • feel the position and size of the child

  • Checking the baby's heartbeat, if medically necessary with CTG check  

  • taking blood samples if necessary 

  • carry out the 50 g glucose test

  • answer all your questions and prepare you for the next steps

The check-ups take place every 4 weeks from the beginning to the 32nd week of pregnancy, and every 2 weeks thereafter. We can carry out all preventive examinations, except for an ultrasound.

Additon: Explanation of gestational week and how it is calculated 

We assume a 40-week pregnancy. We state the age in weeks of pregnancy (SSW). A week has 7 days, so we simply count the days. 

Small example: Your calculated due date (ET) is 20/05/2024 (Monday, corresponds to 40+0), then you are in the 16+2nd week of pregnancy today (06/12/2023). 

This means that the 17th week has already begun, so roughly speaking you are in the 17th week of pregnancy.

Help with pregnancy symptoms

Do you have symptoms or complaints for which you need support or advice? Then you can make an appointment with us and we will try to provide you with various resources. We draw on a wide range of knowledge from complementary medicine.

Support for miscarriages

Unfortunately, not all children are born alive and healthy. We accompany your small birth at home and are your contact for questions and concerns during this long journey.

Roadmap through your pregnancy

Here you will find an overview of when which (preventive) examination can take place during pregnancy. These are recommendations from the maternity guideline. Furthermore we added some organizational advice and typical appointments to provide information about your planned home birth.
