Family rooms

For us, one meaning of the word “holistic” is that the whole family should be included. Our bright, well-equipped family rooms have space for the father and visits from siblings at any time. Incidentally, you can also spend the postnatal period here after giving birth in a hospital or at home.

 

A comfortable, secure place to recover

Getting used to your new role, recovering and starting family life with renewed vigour – you can do all of this and more in our bright, well-equipped family rooms. Geburtshaus Zürcher Oberland has seven postnatal and guest rooms, which come with a double bed, a changing table and an en-suite bathroom and toilet as standard.

Our family rooms

Each of the generously sized rooms bears the name of a special medicinal plant used in gynaecology and a corresponding colour. The rooms are furnished according to feng shui principles; more information on our interior design and colour concept is provided here.

Space for everyone

Since every postnatal room has a double bed, there is always space for your partner, too.

Older siblings are very welcome to visit during the postnatal period. We already involve older siblings in a playful way during the antenatal check-ups, as the arrival of a new baby is a big change for everyone.

Costs for fathers, siblings and guests staying at the birthing centre

Good to know

Mothers/families whose babies were not born at Geburtshaus Zürcher Oberland, be that for medical or other reasons, are also welcome to spend the postnatal period here. If you are interested in doing so, please contact us at any time to arrange a tour of the birthing centre.

Family bath

Families who wish to can enjoy a family bath with a glass of Champagne in the big birthing pool (subject to availability and a surcharge). This might be to make up for a water birth that didn’t work out, a special way of celebrating the new start in life as a family or to say goodbye to the birthing centre.
