Birth preparation

During a birth preparation course midwives provide comprehensive information about pregnancy, birth, the postpartum period and the early stages afterwards. As future parents, you should take enough time to prepare yourself for the birth of your child. You also have the opportunity to compare notes with other couples.

Course content:

  • Information and discussions about pregnancy and birth
  • Promotion of body awareness and practical exercises for support during the birth (relaxation, breathing, massage) with the involvement of the partner
  • Addressing the issue of pain during labour and birth
  • Preparation for the time after the birth: postpartum period, breastfeeding, parenthood

There is a wide offering of birth preparation courses in the Basel region.
