The twins, at 1 October had come to the world, were maintained on the Department of Newborn Children’s Hospital of Lucerne. On Tuesday afternoon, they could be transferred to their home canton of Vaud. In the hospital near their home, they are still cared for some time on. “I’m so happy! The babies and I feel already very good, we have quickly recovered from the birth, “said the mother on the day of the transfer flight.

Rega-based crew took this medical team in Lausanne University Hospital CHUV Lausanne on board – including the Isolette, which is used in the helicopter for transport.
