CALDA Postpartum Depression Program

Home CALDA Postpartum Depression Program

This program corresponds to the CALDA Full Program with the addition of specific mother-child time and a paediatric nurse in the team.

Post-partum depression can occur within the first two years after giving birth. The onset is gradual and manifests itself through a lack of energy, ambivalent feelings towards the baby, sadness and feelings of guilt. Our program allows mothers to bring their babies with them so they can learn to develop a loving mother-child relationship.

Costs per person for four weeks: CHF 568,000.


Immediately after your arrival, you undergo an internal check-up with ECG and abdominal sonography at our private partner clinic Bethanien lasting one to three days. Further examinations such as bicycle ergometry or lung radiography are carried out as required. In cases of addiction, the detoxification process is initiated straight away.

Psychiatric Diagnostics
In Psychiatric Diagnostics, we ascertain your mental state, your personal as well as social anamnesis (medical history) and your addiction and family anamnesis.

Orthomolecular Diagnostics
As part of Orthomolecular Diagnostics, we perform an extensive clinical-chemical analysis, which involves the following examinations:
Allergies and intolerances, amino acid status, inflammation, fatty acid profile, heart rate variability (HRV), hormonal balance, bone metabolism, metabolites, microbiome, micronutrient status, food intolerance, neurotransmitter status, oxidative stress, nitrosative stress, stress profile, stool and digestion analysis.

Through the epigenetic analysis, we find out more about the following values:
