Information in english
We are here for your newborn baby – preterm or term in our Clinic for Neonatology.
The majority of our patients are preterm babies, some require treatment in intensive care. Other small patients have developed enough so they don’t need to be in our neonatal intensive care unit anymore, but cannot be discharched from hospital yet.
It is one of our main priorities to include you as parents in the treatment and care of your children before they leave the neonatal ward. This is how we want to prepare you for the daily challenges at home with your newborn. You will have the option to be with your baby – day and night. We support preterm babies to drink on their own and to maintain their body temperature.
In any regard, we are always close and open for your questions.
