Pregnancy and childbirth

Welche medizinische Betreuung steht mir während der Schwangerschaft zur Verfügung?

For medical check-ups, you should visit a gynaecologist. There is a list of doctors with foreign language skills on the City of Braunschweig website.

Many women in Germany also arrange additional care by a midwife. You can visit the midwife at his/her practice or arrange home visits. Mothers-to-be can look for local midwives with foreign language skills on the Midwife Association of Lower Saxony’s website.

How do I find the right place to give birth?

Local hospitals have maternity wards. There are also birthing centres that specialise in providing comprehensive support for parents and baby. Or, of course, you could opt for a home birth.
