BIRTH CENTRE FREIBURG

Project initiator:

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.

Project description:

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.

Leo Tolstoy
