The HUG Obstetrics Division, directed by Professor Begoña Martinez de Tejada Weber is the largest Maternity in Switzerland. Around 4,247 babies were born there in 2019.
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.
