Problems having a babyAdvice centres
I’ve wanted a child for a long time, but I’m not having any luck. Who can I contact?
Problems having a baby can be a big burden for you and your partner.
You don’t have to deal with this on your own. You can ask for advice:
you can contact a family physician or gynaecologist about the problems you’re experiencing trying to have a baby.
There are also advice centres in Schleswig-Holstein that you can go to for support on this topic. They can also explain possible measures and treatment options.
Will fertility treatments be paid for by my health insurance company?
Unfortunately not. Health insurance companies will only cover the costs under certain conditions and even then only partially.
However, there are ways to get financial support. Ask an advice centre near you.
You can also contact us at cara*SH. We can take you to an advice centre and support you during the visit.
