Contraction and childbirth class

Contraction and childbirth class

Every childbirth is unique. Whether you are a first time mom or have other children, being in labour can be a challenging experience. Having the right knowledge before giving birth can prepare you for a lot of worrying. You will experience less pain, if you know how to work with your body.

Antenatal classes at FOF Aarhus teach you to handle your contractions and your birth, so you have the control. You will be given different tools you can choose from during birth. You learn about the progress of a birth, how breathing can help you, and which body positions you can use during delivery.

This class will give you the safety you need, and our highly trained educators will instruct you and prepare you for the forthcoming birth. Our educators are skilled and very experienced, so you can easily feel secure and ask about your worries.

During the class, we will come across:

  • Breathing exercises
  • Contractions
  • Delivery positions
  • Visualizations and relaxation
  • Pain relief and massage techniques.

You are welcome to join the class alone or with a partner. If you arrive with a partner, you both need to sign up for the class beforehand. The price is DKK 100, - for one person.

Please be aware that you cannot join the class, if you have not signed up and payed for the class. We care about you during the Covid-19 pandemic, and are aware of the maximum participants in the classroom will not exceed the Danish Health Care's recommendation.

We recommend that you join the class in pregnancy week 20-36.
