Which are the best clinics for a high-risk pregnancy in Germany? Here is a list of 10 hospitals that meet the highest quality standards.

Multiple births, premature births or a birth after the expected delivery date are generally considered high-risk births. If the mother is over 35 years old or suffers from a pre-existing condition, the pregnancy and birth is examined and monitored extensively. Thus, malformations or organ damages of the unborn child can be detected and treated at an early stage. Many German Birth Centers offer comprehensive care for mother and child.

The doctors at the clinics listed below specialized in the monitoring of high-risk pregnancies and high-risk births. Only hospitals with the highest level of care have been taken into consideration. The necessary medical expertise and state-of-the-art equipment are available, which is indispensable for the treatment of premature babies or newborns with an illness.

This is how the clinic list was created

  • Focus Award! Every year, the big German weekly magazine Focus honors the best doctors for high-risk pregnancy and the best specialist hospitals for high-risk pregnancy. At all of the hospitals, either one doctor or the whole team has been honored.
  • Many patients! At the nine clinics presented above, the doctors have great experience in monitoring and assisting a birth with an increased risk for mother or child (OPS 9-261) because only hospitals with above-average treatment cases have been taken into consideration. Hospitals are obliged to inform about their medical treatment in quality reports and to provide this information to the Federal Joint Committee.
  • International Reputation! Doctors at the clinics mentioned below are well-known internationally, because they give specialist lectures abroad or because they are recommended by local colleagues. Therefore, all of the clinics in the list have an International Office for patients from abroad.

This is just a small selection of German clinics. Of course, many other hospitals also offer a high quality of treatment.
