At our office

Well-being of the child

The well-being of the child in the womb can be checked very well with the modern possibilities of ultrasound. This involves measuring the growth and movements of the child, the amount of amniotic fluid, placental build-up and blood flow in various arteries and veins of the foetus, as well as in the arteries supplying the uterus. This information is of particular interest in the second half of pregnancy, as it is during this period that some children develop growth problems or require regular monitoring due to a maternal condition, such as high blood pressure. For more information on hypertension in pregnancy, please read the information sheet on pre-eclampsia below.

Quality assurance

My most important goal is to provide my patients and the referring gynaecologists with quick and detailed findings and to be a reliable and always accessible discussion partner in questions of prenatal diagnostics and high-risk pregnancies.

In order to evaluate the quality of my care for pregnant women, every pregnant woman receives a feedback card from me at the time of our first contact, which can be sent back to my office after the birth of the child. On the one hand, this feedback card is there to inform me about the outcome of the pregnancy and the condition of the child, but it is also intended to give suggestions regarding my care.

The introduction of new methods and equipment, as well as regular participation in further training and constant study of new scientific findings are a matter of course for me.

I charge as a elective doctor, yet supplementary insurances may cover part of the fee, depending on the tariff agreements.

In hospitals, too, first trimester screening and organ screening are non-standard checks and thus are charged.
Unfortunately, these examinations are not covered by general health insurance.

All services are charged in cash.

Please note: We kindly request that appointments must be cancelled at least 24 hours in advance. Otherwise the appointment would have to be charged.

Please bring the following with you to the examination:

  • Pregnancy Evaluation Pass (Mutter-Kind-Pass)
  • An unused USB stick so that we can give you the best pictures of the ultrasound examination. (optional)
