Warning: Make sure that you register for the appropriate courses based on the stage of your pregnancy. Refer to the specific instructions for each course.

The Maternity at the HUG offers courses that can be selected individually, aimed at women who are pregnant, as part of the preparation for birth and for couples, both to prepare to become parents and to organize their return home with their child (or children), under the best conditions possible.

Starting at the 4th month of pregnancy, mothers-to-be can register directly online on this website, to participate in the courses that interest them, alone or accompanied by a person of their choice.

It is essential that women register for the appropriate courses based on the stage of their pregnancy.
Instructions are provided for each course.  

All courses are led by a midwife (specialized in lactation, with a diploma in the Brazelton method, etc.); sometimes a physician or anesthesiologist will accompany them. Furthermore, all courses will take place in the Maternity (Boulevard de la Cluse 30, 1205 Genève) except for the pool birth preparation course, which will take place at Bains de Cressy (FR) (Route de Loëx 99, 1232 Confignon).

Any absences not notified at least 24 hours before the course will not be refunded.

For your information, LAMal covers up to CHF 150.- of the expenses for the birth preparation course; information about epidurals does not fall into this category.
