About Prof. Dr Christian Breymann MD

Prof. Breymann, Obstetrics & Perinatal Medicine, GGS Zurich/Switzerland

Prof. Dr. med. Christian Breymann is a specialist for gynecology & obstetrics in Zurich. He is co-director of the GGS - Gynecology & Obstetrics Seefeld Center and founder of the Institute for Prenatal Diagnostics, Perinatal Counselling, and Obstetrics - Perinatal Zurich.

Besides, the medical care of pregnancies and births, especially in the field of prenatal diagnostics and risk obstetrics, Prof. Breymann also carries out surgeries when necessary, mainly in cases of an unfulfilled wish to have children or after repeated miscarriages.

The designated expert in perinatal medicine and gynecology sets value on a personal and trusting relationship with his patients. His care concept for expectant mothers is primarily oriented towards the needs and expectations of the pregnant woman - because the well-being of the future mother is essential for smooth delivery.

Klinik Perinatal Zürich - the Network of Experts in Perinatal Medicine

The hospital of Obstetrics Zürich offers advantages, especially to women with high-risk pregnancies and complex problems because the expert opinion of many specialists in perinatal medicine incorporates the procedure in the well-respected institute of the founder Prof. Dr. Breymann. The experienced physicians of the clinic are combined of all specialist areas which play a role in perinatal medicine. Experienced perinatal physicians, geneticists, neonatologists, and other specialists come together for an interdisciplinary exchange of opinions. The closely networked team of experts is always up to date with the latest scientific findings and can draw on profound experience. This high-performance network ensures the best possible care for pregnant women - from counseling and prevention to obstetrics and aftercare of the mother and newborn.

Comprehensive consultation and highly qualified specialist medical care in all phases of pregnancy are the cornerstones of patient-oriented care at obstetrics Zurich. Prof. Dr. Breymann and his team of specialists are also particularly concerned about competent aftercare and medical care - whether after childbirth or due to illness.

Prof. Dr. Breymann's Main Treatment Focuses

The experienced specialist in gynecology and obstetrics is specialized in the field of perinatal medicine with the following main focuses of treatment:

  • Taking care of routine and risk pregnancies
  • Obstetrics (normal and cesarean section births, risk births)
  • Pregnancy ultrasound with 3D/4D imaging, ultrasound of organs
  • Amniotic fluid examination (amniocentesis)
  • Chorionic villus sampling
  • Counselling and diagnostics for the desire to have children
  • Consultation hours iron deficiency and anemia

Comprehensive Medical Care for Your Pregnancy and Delivery - Even in Risk Cases!

Perinatal medicine or fetomaternal medicine is Prof. Dr. Breymann's unique field. In this area of gynecology, he engages in patients before, during, and after pregnancy. In his practice, he advises patients who wish to have children on the best possible preparation for an upcoming pregnancy, e.g., with the support of vitamins, nutrients, or minerals.

For many women, a child is an essential part of a happy life. Unfortunately, a long-cherished desire for a child is not always fulfilled, which is where modern reproductive medicine with procedures such as in vitro fertilization (IVF) can significantly increase the chance of pregnancy. Sometimes a surgical intervention on the fallopian tubes or uterus can also correct the woman's infertility.

Prenatal Examinations

In the course of pregnancy, whether uncomplicated or high-risk pregnancy, Prof. Dr. Breymann provides his patients with the most up-to-date scientific care and advice in the spirit of the Zurich Obstetrics Department. On request, Prof. Dr. Breymann will carry out all necessary examinations himself. He can make use of the latest technology in the Zurich Obstetrics Department, for example, a high-end ultrasound machine with 3D and 4D imaging. If the child is favorably positioned, you can see the unborn child from every side in ultrasound.

All necessary examinations (e.g., ultrasound examinations, amniocentesis, chorionic villus sampling, genetic tests) can be carried out by him. If you wish, you can already observe your unborn child during pregnancy with a 3D or 4D ultrasound, a good position of the child provided. If you have specific questions regarding pregnancy and birth, e.g., diabetes (sugar disease), coagulation disorders, or complications in previous pregnancies, we will be happy to advise you comprehensively.

Amniotic Fluid Examination (Amniocentesis)

Amniocentesis provides information about possible alterations in the fetus' genetic material or even hereditary diseases that have been passed on to the embryo. By analyzing the genetic material and the amniotic fluid obtained, trisomy 21 (Down's syndrome) and an open back (spina bifida) can also be detected. Of course, Prof. Dr. Breymann will also advise you in case of possible malformations or developmental disorders of the fetus.

Chorionic Villus Sampling

Another examination method of prenatal diagnostics is the chorionic villus sampling, in which a small sample is taken from the placenta between the 10th and 12th weeks of pregnancy. It provides information about the presence of genetic diseases such as cystic fibrosis or hemophilia in the unborn child.


For more than two decades, Prof. Dr. Breymann has been provided medical care for births and, if medically necessary or desired, also carried out cesarean sections (in the NESA technique, "gentle cesarean section") himself. Prof. Dr. Christian Breymann is the right partner for you, especially for high-risk pregnancies or births, as well as for riskier obstetric surgeries. Personal care, in which the patient is the center of attention, is always of utmost importance to the specialists. In an ordinary course of pregnancy, the birth can also be guided by a midwife.

Specialist for Women With Iron Deficiency

Prof. Dr. Breymann is a designated specialist in the field of iron deficiency in women. He was significantly involved in the development of treatment guidelines (in Switzerland and internationally) for iron deficiency in women.
