Welcome to the homepage of the Berlin Association of Midwives!
Annually, more than 34,000 babies are born in Berlin. Each of them has been welcomed by the hands of a midwife.
The Midwifery Act stipulates that a midwife must be called for each birth. In addition, midwives accompany women and couples from the beginning of the pregnancy to the end of the puerperal period, or breast-feeding period. Midwifery services are fully paid by your statutory health insurance fund and also by most private insurances.
On our homepage you will find offers by midwives and information regarding frequently requested topics.
