During pregnancy, the doctor or midwife will register you with the cantonal or district hospital for the birth. You can choose whether you want to give birth in a hospital or in a birth center. Most women give birth in a hospital. It is also possible to give birth at your home with the assistance of a midwife. However, these home births are only advisable for pregnancies without complications. For more information here.
