"As much nature as possible, as little medicine as necessary".
This is the philosophy of our maternity department. We want to give you a natural birth according to your wishes, with a lot of comfort and the safety of the hospital.
Every birth and every birth process is unique. If the birth is uncomplicated, you will be accompanied first and foremost by the midwife. She will inform you about the progress of the birth and about the possibilities of birthing posture and pain relief, will engage with you in an unbiased way and will care for you in the best possible way. At the latest during the birth, in addition to the midwife, the doctor in charge is also present.
Forms of labor
It is important to us that you feel secure with us. For this reason, our birth rooms are uniquely designed in terms of color and convey a warm and soothing atmosphere. In addition, you will enjoy an unobstructed view of the lake.
In our birthing rooms, you help decide how you would like to give birth to your child: on the birthing bed, on the floor mat or on the birthing stool. Or
do you prefer a water birth in the birthing tub? How and in which position you give birth, you decide situationally with our professional support.

Postpartum phase: The postpartum phase comprises the time from the development of the newborn to the birth of the placenta.
The natural birth
Once the birth has definitely begun, you will be taken to the birthing room. There, blood will be taken from you and a vein will be inserted for the purpose of pain medication, if necessary. A vaginal examination will take place approximately every two hours and heart tones and contractions will be checked.
If a vaginal birth is not recommended in the case of breech presentation, a rotation of the child in the cranial position can be attempted before the otherwise necessary caesarean section. We will be happy to advise you on which methods are suitable for you.
Often, simple methods such as proper breathing, movement, a changed birthing position or a bath already help. If this does not provide enough relief, pain relief ranges from complementary medicine methods such as homeopathy, aromatherapy, acupuncture, massages and wraps to painkillers from classical orthodox medicine.
At See-Spital, we offer patient-controlled pain therapy. Using a pump, the woman can determine at the touch of a button how much painkiller she acutely
she needs acutely. An overdose is not possible.
In peridural anesthesia (PDA), a catheter is inserted in the area of the lumbar spine, near the spinal cord, to numb the nerves in the lower body. This causes relaxation in the abdomen and almost complete freedom from pain. The dosage of the epidural is adjusted so that you are only slightly restricted in your mobility and can assume virtually all birth positions.
A distinction is made between primary and secondary cesarean sections.
child or already known medical reasons. Secondary cesarean section, on the other hand, is necessary due to complications that may arise during birth.
Nowadays, cesarean section is sometimes deliberately preferred to spontaneous delivery. For fear of the unknown labor pain or possible perineal injuries under a natural birth, the cesarean section is considered the “lesser evil,” so to speak, and is perceived as more predictable. On the other hand, to believe that a cesarean section is completely risk-free would be a fallacy. A cesarean section is a surgical procedure performed under regional or general anesthesia, and the pain afterwards should not be underestimated.
We and the Society of Pediatrics believe that a complication-free birth is the gentlest and often perceived best way to deliver a baby for both mother and baby. It is completely normal that fears arise before a birth. Discuss these with us! Our midwives as well as our doctors are always available for a discussion.
