Frequently asked questions
If you have questions about your pregnancy, the baby or other concerns, it is always recommended to talk to a midwife to be on the safe side. They can give you competent advice and can assess many situations very well. In medical emergencies, however, always consult a doctor.
Whether you have an on-site midwife or not, you can always use Kinderheldin's services to clarify questions or gain further knowledge through courses.
At Kinderheldin, you can use the midwife consultation every day from 7 am to 10 pm. Just choose the chat icon on the "Sprechstunde"-Tab and our midwives will be there for you within 15 minutes.
All our midwives are qualified and have several years of professional experience. They are all members of the German Midwives Association.
To receive a consultation by a midwife via chat, first register in the members' area. There you will find the selection for booking under "My courses" under the courses offered.
Our midwives take enough time per live chat just for you. Experience shows that the vast majority of requests can be resolved within a few minutes. But don't worry, important and/or urgent enquiries can also take longer. We do not break off the chat in the middle! :)
The individual selection of a specific midwife is not possible at the moment, as this way we cannot ensure to always respond to incoming requests in the shortest possible time. All our midwives provide advice according to the same high standards and quality requirements. However, as we are continuously developing the service, we will check at a later stage whether it is possible and useful to offer this option.
If you book outside our opening hours, which are currently daily between 07:00 and 22:00, you can freely select an appointment within our opening hours. We will then contact you at the desired time. Within our opening hours, you can simply book a consultation when you have time: we will then be there for you in a few minutes.
Our midwives are supposed to be the first point of contact for expectant mothers and parents of babies when it comes to acute and general questions about pregnancy, postpartum and mother-child health. Our aim is to provide (expectant) parents with advice and support. Nevertheless, Kinderheldin is not a substitute for a doctor or an ambulance - in urgent cases, these should of course be consulted directly. Midwives cannot and must not give medical diagnoses and treatments.
