Prenatal classes

In our birth preparation classes, specially trained midwives will provide you with comprehensive information about pregnancy, birth and the time after birth. The classes are taught in a small, intimate group setting in English.

Information on the current situation due to Covid-19

Due to Federal Council relaxation of measures on May 31th 2021, we currently are able to hold our prenatal courses in person at our spacious classroom. 

We have a strict safety protocol in place and we always follow the current guidelines of University Hospital Basel, the Canton of Basel-Stadt and Federal Office of Public Health (FOPH).

We would like to give you the opportunity to register for our prenatal courses early in advance. Still we are unable to predict pandemic situation during the next month. It’s not clear yet whether our courses can be in person by then or have to be hold online, that’s why we plan in both ways.

The content of the prenatal course is the same for both the online and classroom format: working in groups of up to seven couples, a midwife discusses everything you need to know about pregnancy and giving birth in a live Zoom meeting. Practical exercises help you learn different forms of movement, relaxation, breathing and massage. You will get to grips with the post-delivery period, breast feeding and your first time as parents, and have the chance to ask the midwife any questions or concerns and share them with other parents-to-be.
