Caring for you as we would for ourselves

Café meet-up for parents-to-be attended by a neonatologist

Hôpital de La Tour offers an open and respectful space for expectant parents to meet and talk in the presence of a neonatologist. The format of these cafés, where you have a chat over a coffee, allows you to freely discuss various aspects relating to the arrival of a newborn in your family. It’s also an opportunity to meet and get to know other couples who are at the same stage as you.

The Cafés for Parents-To-Be are open to couples who are about to have a baby and to expectant single parents (mothers and fathers), regardless of where they have chosen to give birth. We recommend that you attend from around the seventh month of your pregnancy.

What we offer

At these cafés, we give you the opportunity to meet with a professional and benefit from their experience and expertise, as well as the opportunity to talk to other parents-to-be and discuss various issues so that you will feel calm and prepared for the arrival of your newborn.

These topics mainly include the following: 

  • Newborn examination at birth
  • Care for the newborn at birth
  • Looking after your newborn baby
  • Fleeding your baby
  • Washing your baby
  • Your baby’s sleep
  • Going home from hospital.

Other topics can also be discussed according to your interests and requests.
