Birth – optimum protection from day one
Are you ready for the birth of your child and those incredibly special first few weeks of motherhood? Find out everything you need to know about insurance cover for expectant mothers and their babies.
The cost of giving birth and the recovery period are covered by mandatory basic insurance. If you take out supplementary insurance one year ahead of the birth, you’ll enjoy further benefits such as a breastfeeding allowance or home help.
Children who are breastfed as babies are less prone to allergies and obesity. In other words, breastfeeding makes an important contribution to the child’s future health.
Breastfeeding is not always easy. Get help and support from a midwife or specially trained adviser. Basic insurance covers three sessions. If you have the CSS Health Account, you’ll get half the cost of any additional breastfeeding advice refunded, but no more than CHF 700.
