But what does a midwife in Germany do?
A midwife in Germany has different kinds of services. Usually the German health insurance covers the costs.
Midwife services - 4 areas:
- check ups leading up to birth
- pre- and post natal courses (Geburtsvorbereitung / Rückbildung)
- check ups post-partum (comes to your house to check on you and your baby)
- delivery of the baby - in every hospital there is a midwife present during your delivery - you do NOT have to look for this service.
When you look for a midwife it is mostly for the postnatal care. She looks after you and your baby during the first weeks at home. You can ask your questions and she will support you as much as possible.
