BIRTH CENTRE FREIBURG
Geburtshaus Freiburg e. V.
The initiative “Geburtshaus Freiburg e. V.” – consisting of a group of midwives, professionals and activists – wants to re-establish the freedom of choice of the place of birth by establishing a birth centre in the city and to enable women, parents, families and children in Freiburg to have a safe and self-determined birth.
The planned birth centre offers families the opportunity to give birth to their child in a facility outside the hospital – self-determined, with little intervention and accompanied by midwives.
What a wonderful mystery is the entrance of a new human being into the world.
Families are cared for 1:1 by a midwife in the completed birth centre during the phases of pregnancy, birth and puerperium, and also have a place afterwards to find out about topics relating to relationship and attachment-oriented family life and to exchange ideas with other parents.

Aim of the funding:
Conversion of an existing property to meet the needs of the Freiburg birth centre.
