Birth Preparation Classes


Would you like to share a birth preparation course with other couples?
The Midwives Centre proposes group courses dealing with pregnancy, childbirth, infant feeding and newborn care.
This will be an opportunity to meet the midwife who will follow you when you return home.

If you would like a personalized birth and parenting preparation course with your midwife, private or group coaching are proposed.
Usually, if the midwife who gave you prenatal classes is available when you are back at home, she will provide your postpartum follow-up.



These dynamically articulated courses, consisting of theory and practice time (bodywork and role-playing), will allow you to:
- familiarize yourself with the world of parenting,
- have benchmarks to make informed choices,
- revisit certain information received,
- strengthen your confidence and parenting skills,
- experience the benefits of certain postures, relaxation methods and breathing that will accompany you throughout the birth, 
- provide tools for the partner,
- anticipate certain administrative steps.



The fees for group classes are CHF 300.- (3 courses of 2 hours).

Private courses are also available, fees are CHF 120.- per 1 hour course.
The number of required courses will be defined according to your expectations and your needs. A minimum of 3 sessions is advised.

The basic insurance (LAMal) will pay a contribution of CHF 150.- for an individual or group birth preparation course (maternity package). 
Additional contribution may be partially granted by complementary health insurances.
