Your stay in the maternity unit

Your stay on the maternity ward is a special opportunity for you and your partner to have initial contact with your newborn baby. It is also a period of "recovery" and rest following your pregnancy and delivery. It is furthermore an opportunity, under optimum conditions, to learn how to correctly take care of your baby.

Our maternity ward is located on the 2nd and 3rd storeys of the clinic. You will be staying in one of our 33 rooms (22 one-bed rooms and 11 two-bed rooms) and will be provided with all of our accommodation and catering services.

In early November 2016, the clinic will be expanding with the opening of an extension to its maternity department: the "Adagio" ward.
This extension to the maternity section is located in the annex to the third floor of Clinique Bohler’s main building, in the new building located behind the clinic, facing the Hôpital Kirchberg. Both buildings are linked by walkways which you will find on the ground floor and third floors respectively. In all, the maternity department has 29 beds in the main building and 10 beds in the extension.

Featuring an elegant and modern design, this cosy facility is comprised of:

  • A "Lobby" reception area; (click picture to enlarge)

The decorative scheme for this "Adagio" wing has been specially designed by an interior design company. With its "Belle-époque" decor, it seeks to create a relaxing and timeless atmosphere to enable parents to fully enjoy one of life’s most special moments, that of the birth of their child.

During your stay, we encourage the proximity of the mother and her child : this is the "rooming-in" concept.


We provide daily medical supervision.
Your gynaecologist or his substitute visits you every day in your room to ensure that your post-partum progress is going well. He will help you decide on the date of your discharge and will advise you of any risks or signs about which you should be warned. Your baby will be monitored by a team of paediatricians and will be first seen within 24 hours after birth or sooner if necessary. He will be seen a second time in your presence on the day of your discharge, at which time you can ask any questions you may have. In the meantime, the paediatricians are updated daily by the nursing staff monitoring your child's progress and will notify you if special treatment or supervision is required.

Our nursing teams visit you in your room, advise you about your newborn's needs and what he can do, and supply all the necessary information to give you peace of mind once you are discharged (carrying and holding the baby, prevention of crib death, etc.).

Of course, if you decide to breast feed, rest assured that the Clinique Bohler has an excellent reputation in this area and that all our staff are specially trained to give you guidance. A lactation consultant is available to advise you during your stay. Do not hesitate to ask her any questions you may have.

The length of your stay will vary depending on your baby's weight gain and your own state of health.
Discharges are organised every day (including Sundays and public holidays) with the consent of the gynaecologist and the paediatrician, normally before 11 h.
