Prenatal medicine and ultrasound diagnostics (Senior Physician [Oberärztin] Dr. A. Köninger; Senior Physician [Oberarzt] Dr. C. Birdir)


Focus areas


As a perinatal center, we care for the highest risk mothers and babies. Our intensive care unit for premature infants is located immediately adjacent to the delivery room. A gynecology specialist, as well as pediatric and anesthesiology specialists, are present 24 hours a day. Both mothers and babies benefit from a birthing environment that combines a natural delivery setting with the best possible safety.

Our long-term experience puts us in a particularly good position to care for pregnant women at risk for premature birth, for those pregnant with multiples and those afflicted by pregnancy-related diseases. Prenatal diagnostics specialists are available to treat the unborn child.

C-sections mostly follow the gentle Misgav-Ladach approach.
