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

Our classes are held on site.

The location is spacious and we apply a strict concept of protective measurements. The national, cantonal and hospital guidelines are followed at all times.

It is important to us to be able to provide the classes at the hospital rather than online. However, if the pandemic situation intensifies we will decide to switch to online classes at short notice.

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.
