Today Nutricia Milupa published the 2021 birth list and noted a total of 765,686 births in the German clinics. Compared to the previous year (745,839 births), this means an increase of 2.66 percent in births in Germany. In addition, the centralization of obstetrics is increasingly coming into focus.
With 6,637 births, the Munich clinic is again the leader of the Nutricia Milupa birth list 2021. Compared to 2020, the birth rate here has risen sharply by 8.34 percent. The university hospital Charité in Berlin follows in second place, reporting a total of 5,459 births. Here the number of births increased by 3.02 percent. Third place was taken by the Sankt Joseph Hospital in Berlin with 4,410 births, an increase of 4.88 percent over the previous year.
The centralization of obstetrics is being pushed further
Compared to the previous year, many clinic closures can be observed again in 2021. Even if these were only temporary in part – due to the outbreak of the coronavirus – it can be seen that there are more births in larger clinics than in smaller clinics. Thus, obstetrics is becoming more and more centralized in large clinics. The number of births was recorded in a total of 631 delivery rooms and 13 closures were observed.
Collection of birth lists for more than 20 years
Nutricia Milupa’s scientific field service carries out a survey at the individual clinics to collect the number of births. All information is non-binding and without guarantee.
The Nutricia Milupa birth list has been collected annually since 1999. In terms of the absolute numbers, the birth list differs slightly from the birth statistics of the Federal Statistical Office. This is due to the different survey methods: Nutricia Milupa records the number of births in the clinics, while the Federal Statistical Office records the number of all newborns. The latter also includes, for example, births in birth centers and home births. However, when considering the annual percentage increase in births, the results of Nutricia Milupa are very close to those of the Federal Statistical Office.
