Frequently asked questions relating to childbirth and confinement at the Dritter Orden Clinic

Here you will find detailed information on childbirth and confinement.
  • When and how do I register for childbirth?

    Please register as early as possible by using the online form on the German website for registration. Our midwives will come back to you to let you know if your registration is confirmed. We want to make sure that every woman gets the best possible midwife assistance during delivery.

    Telephone number for midwife consultation session (Wednesday 02.00 p.m. - 04.00 p.m.): +49 (0)89 1795-1395


  • Should I present at the Clinic before the birth?

    If your registration to give birth at Dritter Orden hospital has been confirmed, please arrange an appointment for a personal interview about 6-8 weeks before the due date. To do so, please call during our midwife consultation session. During this session, we will take time to go through your medical history. Furthermore, you will have the opportunity to ask questions relating to procedures. Please have your pregnancy record with you.

  • What do I have to bring with me to the Clinic?

    Next to personal items please have the following things with you: your pregnancy record, your European Health Insurance Card or a provisional confirmation from your health insurance (replacement certificate), pyjamas, bathrobe, personal laundry, bathing shoes, toilet bag, an outfit for the child, a few snacks – and patience.

  • Am I allowed to bring a companion along for the birth?

    The father-to-be or another person of confidence is welcome to accompany you.

  • Can I have my baby by water birth?

    In our Maternity Department we have three bathtubs available for a relaxation birth during labour and – depending on the mother-to-be – for the birth as well.

  • Do you also administer homoeopathic medicines?

    Our midwives are familiar with homoeopathy and use the most important remedies that can help during a birth, as and when required.

  • Will the baby be breastfed right after the birth?

    To give the mother and child as good a “breastfeeding start” as possible the newborn baby is breastfed right after birth. In the confinement period the young mother receives expert assistance in taking care of her child. There is an experienced team of paediatric nurses, nurses, midwives and doctors on hand for every question.
