Birth preparation
during COVID-19/Corona

Copenhagen Doulas come to you!
We follow the national guidelines and all our teaching and sessions are converted to online or open air. 

In the current COVID-19 situation it is especially important for you to feel well informed, calm and confident in the build up to your baby’s birth.  

To accomodate your needs we continue to offer birth preparation during the lock-down period – though we have now converted all classes and sessions to meet the guidelines of the Danish Health Authorities:

Our Ready for Birth – Private courses are now available online and as Walk ‘n Talk out in the open
– so that you can take extra good care of yourself.

This means, that we continue to offer evidence-based and solid child birth education without the risk of infection.
