Obstetrics Division Mission

The HUG Obstetrics Division, directed by Professor Begoña Martinez de Tejada Weber is the largest Maternity in Switzerland. Around 4,213 babies were born there in 2018.

Its mission:

  • Provide care for pregnant women, from the pregnancy test to delivery (including Caesarean deliveries), as well as during the post-partum period
  • Monitor normal and high-risk pregnancies
  • Provide care for women undergoing therapeutic abortions at a gestational age greater than 12 weeks  
  • Provide services in fetal medicine (monitoring, diagnostics, intrauterine treatment)
  • Receive women and couples in the safest and most comfortable environment while respecting each person's privacy and values. 

The division engages, on a daily basis, in teamwork between midwives, obstetricians, neonataologists and anesthesiologists, with an ongoing concern for safety and humanitarianism. The priority given to physiology is a clear commitment to efforts to prevent medical risks and support parents undergoing difficult medical, psychological and social situations.

UNICEF has certified the HUG Maternity as a “Baby-Friendly Hospital", and it is committed to promoting breastfeeding.
