Consultation with a midwife

Expectant mothers have the right to a one-hour consultation with a midwife between the 18th and 22nd week of pregnancy. This free consultation is included in the mother-child health passport and can be claimed independently of the medical examinations. (Unlike the required medical examinations of the expectant mother and the child, the consultation with a midwife is not a prerequisite for continuing to receive the child care allowance in full.)


The midwife will give you a wide range of information as part of a one-hour conversation. However, this is also an opportunity to talk about any concerns or problems you may have, and the midwife can give you tips on where to find additional support.

The topics covered in the consultation with a midwife include:

  • Course of the pregnancy, birth and postnatal care
  • Health-promoting behavior, negative effects of alcohol and nicotine, nutrition and exercise, protection against infectious diseases, etc.
  • Prenatal classes and exercises
  • Different forms of birth and their long-term effects
  • Health-promoting aspects of breastfeeding
