Preparing for childbirth

Full course:

The aim of these sessions is to prepare you and your partner for labour and the delivery of your baby by relaxation exercises and techniques to help with pushing at the time of delivery. As a result of being fully informed, having various strategies to cope with the stresses during this time and by having the opportunity to talk through various concerns that you may have, you will feel far more confident and positive regarding the birth of your child.

Application for this course should be made prior to the 23rd week of your pregnancy via the secretaries at the outpatient clinic. They will issue a form which should be completed and returned to them.
Frequency: 8 sessions, 1x per week
Cost: 15 Euros (not reimbursed from your health insurance)

Condensed course:

For those who have given birth already and prefer a "refresher course" rather than the full course.

Again, application for this course should be made prior to the 23rd week of your pregnancy via the secretaries at the outpatient clinic.
Frequency: 5 sessions, 1x per week
Cost: 15 Euros (not reimbursed from your health insurance)
