The event will currently only take place online. From July onwards, the courses will again take place on site in compliance with hygiene measures. Please register here.


In the two-day antenatal course you and your partner will be prepared for labour, birth and the postnatal period. It will provide you with valuable information and practical advice. The class is led by an experienced midwife. She will teach you everything about:

  • how to prepare for childbirth
  • signs of labour, when to call the hospital
  • stages of labour, different kind of contractions
  • how to support your wife (massage etc.)
  • relaxing and breathing techniques
  • pain relief methods
  • birthing positions
  • breastfeeding basics

After having attended the classes the majority felt more confident as childbirth approaches. Furthermore, attending an antenatal class increases the possibility of a natural, trouble free birth. It supports a positive mindset and trust in our bodies. You will meet a group of people who are going through the same or similar experience as you are. Sharing thoughts, fears and experiences can be extremely helpful. The course will preferably take place in the delivery suite (if capacity allows), so you can already start to feel comfortable in this environment.


Saturdays and Sundays from 10:30 am to 2:00 pm.
