Medical care for pregnant women
Pregnant women will receive medical care. The course of the pregnancy and your child’s development will be monitored. This will include regular examinations (e.g. blood tests, urine tests and ultrasound
examinations), preparation for the birth, the delivery itself and aftercare. If you are pregnant, the doctor treating you will give you a maternity record (Mutterpass). The individual appointment dates/ times for examinations will be recorded in this document. Deliveries are assisted by male and female midwives and also by doctors. Midwives are also important contacts before and after the birth.
