Welcome to the Department of Obstetrics and Fetal Medicine
You are expecting a baby. Your life will change in many new and unexpected ways. Our team of doctors, midwives, nurses and other professionals at the University of Hamburg Perinatal Center aims to provide all the support you need during this life-changing period, and we will be there to answer your questions and provide personal advice.
Anyone expecting a child wants to know that they are in capable hands, but every pregnancy is different: we always place the individual needs and concerns of patients and their families at the focus of what we do, so that parents feel safe and secure, during pregnancy, labor and delivery and after, in case of an uncomplicated as well as a high-risk pregnancy.
To this end we offer all the necessary services from antenatal medicine through to postnatal care and every related medical specialty all under one roof. And: of course we do speak English!
We're looking forward to meeting you and your baby!
Professor Dr. Kurt Hecher and Team
