Preventive healthcare in maternity

For you as parents, the birth of your child marks the beginning of a new phase in your life in which security and responsibility take on an entirely different significance. As a mother or father, you want the best for your child. SWICA supports you with a wide range of services during pregnancy and after the birth.

Maternity benefits at a glance

SWICA contributes towards the cost of baby massage, homeopathy and Bach flower therapy. SWICA also contributes towards the cost of non-standard vaccinations. In addition, you receive a breastfeeding voucher to the value of 200 francs.

Maternity involves numerous examinations both before and after the birth. To ensure that mother and child receive comprehensive care and are financially secure, there are no co-payments for maternity benefits.

What our customers have to say.

Mijin Cavallini
«As a mum and midwife I find that SWICA offers great maternity-related benefits and services. Already during pregnancy SWICA provided support with acupuncture, which helped me a lot. And after the birth they were always there for us, which meant I could enjoy the time with my baby.»
Daniel Henke
«For our family, only the best is good enough. Thanks to SWICA, we were able to enjoy the first hours and days together in a family room after our daughter was born. It’s wonderful and reassuring to know that, if anything happens, we as a young family are in good hands with SWICA.»
Bettina Spanudakis
«As the mother of a 3-year-old I’ve already contacted sante24 several times about ‘childhood illnesses’. I don’t like running to the doctor about every little thing. The initial telephone assessment and expert advice have generally been so good that I haven’t needed to bother our paediatrician.»
