Ready for Birth

5 weeks class course

360° birth preparation in five foreseeable modules.

At Copenhagen Doulas we do not teach by a particular method.

Through inspiring presentations, hands-on exercises and activities, evidence based information and talk we strive for individuality; that you and your partner feel safe, primed and ready for birth – no matter how it will unfold.

During Ready for Birth class course you and your partner will build a mutual foundation for how you want to welcome your baby – there’s no ‘one-size-fits-all’ model, you will have to find your individual recipe.
We show you the possibilities and options, guide you and pave the way for you to make the choices that make sense to you.

Ready for Birth is in five foreseeable modules.

We call it essential birth preparation that turns up your and your partners confidence, strenghten your team work and make you ready for birth and life with your newborn.

My boyfriend and I attended ‘Ready for Birth’ course with Louise and Karina Isolde – and we loved it.

It was great to be together in this travel of getting ready for birth and we both enjoyed the hands-on exercises and the theoretical part.

Louise and Karina Isolde are well educated and experienced, they are well spoken and has great empathy.

And then it was great to meet other pregnant couples from around the world.

I definitely recommend others to do the same.

Kristine, first time mom

Copenhagen Doulas was an amazing learning experience for me and my wife.

Karina Isolde and Louise do an amazing job teaching and supporting parents through the amazing journey that is pregnancy and birth.

I would specially like to highlight that the courses are personalized for every couple, making it an unique experience.

Karina Isolde and Louise thank you for all the love and support during our journey.

Morgan, first time dad

The ‘Ready for Birth’ class put our minds at ease by giving us extensive information about birth and teaching us how to relieve stress and anxiety about the process.

Karina Isolde and Louise are forces of nature who taught us a less scary way to think about birth, how to cope, as well as how to manage relationships with medical professionals involved in pregnancy and birth.

As an added bonus, we build a great network of moms who continue to meet and support each other!”

Tanja, first time mom

Doing the ‘Ready for Birth’ preparation class with Copenhagen Doulas was one of the best experiences I had during my pregnancy. I could share my feelings and be at ease.

I was extremely scared about the idea of birth and delivery, as a first time mom, but learning how to keep calm through talking, various exercises and yoga, really helped me through.

And of course, extremely thankful for the mommy group with whom I can relate every experience.

Nusrat, Isayah's mom

I found Copenhagen Doulas and signed up to their ‘Ready for Birth’ class and I couldn’t be happier that I did.

The course helped me build mental and spiritual strength for the road ahead, not just internally but with my partner too, bonding us closer together.

The course also acted as a social springboard too and our group still keeps in regular contact, upholding and supporting each other which I am so grateful for.

I highly recommend this course for anyone who is pregnant and wants to add joy and confidence into the process!

Honey, Leo's mom

Studies show that the presence of a doula during birth results in shorter births, fewer interventions, and less need for medical pain-relief amongst other things.
