star children

Currently, there are several thousand annually star children, children who come to the dead, such methods include for us losses before the 12th week of pregnancy.


We would like to give affected parents a little support with our work and give the wards in hospitals a little more color.


With our consolation boxes, we want to create lasting memories that are as individual as the deceased child itself.


About 5 - 10% of all children are premature babies , in Switzerland about 4500 annually. A premature baby is a child who is born at least two weeks early, ie before the 37th week of pregnancy.


With our premature baby clothes, we want to enable parents to dress even the smallest babies, from the 25th week of pregnancy (size 32), and to take these clothes home as a souvenir of this difficult time.


The clothes are adapted to the conditions of the hospital. It consists exclusively of jersey and the cables and hoses are easily accessible through the binding straps. This also makes work much easier for nursing staff.


Not only premature parents can contact us, we are also open to relatives and friends.

We also hand over the clothes to babies born on time, who are, however, much too small for industrially manufactured things.

𝗔𝘂𝘀𝘁𝗮𝘂𝘀𝗰𝗵 𝗳ü𝗿 𝗯𝗲𝘁𝗿𝗼𝗳𝗳𝗲𝗻𝗲 𝗘𝗹𝘁𝗲𝗿𝗻!

We are now managing the NeoCafé Bern in cooperation with Dr. A. Kidszun. On site in the NeoCafé but also in the Facebook group, the exchange between affected parents should be made possible.

§§§ Legal regulation of maternity allowance in the event of premature birth §§§


Many premature mothers ask themselves the question of how maternity allowance is regulated if their premature baby has to stay on neonatology for a long time.


At its meeting on March 2, 2018, the Federal Council sent an amendment to the Act on the Income Compensation Ordinance for consultation. According to a parliamentary mandate, this means that a mother is entitled to longer maternity benefits if her newborn has to stay in hospital more than three weeks after the birth.

Here you will find a detailed description of the decision:

Information from Santesuisse on the assumption of the cost of ready-made milk powder for premature babies


Normal milk powder for premature babies is available on the market. Since these are actual foods, they are not traded as medicines, but rather fall under food legislation. Such products cannot be found on the list of specialties. The list of specialties contains the original medicines and cheaper generic drugs with prices that are reimbursed by health insurers.


Only when there is a nutritional disorder in the infant does it, among other things, have a handful of products on the specialty list that can be prescribed and also paid for (up to an age of 12 months). See link: http: //www.spezialitä SearchType = ItCode & searchValue = 07.01.10 .


In certain cases (e.g. diabetics) it may be necessary to use special products. These products must be prescribed by the doctor. These products are covered by health insurance in certain cases and for a certain period of time.
