Pre-registration for childbirth
Pre-registration takes place in the maternity ward in a consultation with a midwife. The consultation generally lasts 30-45 minutes and consists of the midwife recording your personal data, noting your medical history and the course of your current pregnancy. Your personal preferences for the birth are discussed and, if necessary, a specialist appointment is arranged. An antenatal check-up can also be performed during the pre-registration.
