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.

The first two modules are ‘women-only’ the last three modules are with partners and prospective birth helpers.

My boyfriend and I attended ‘Ready for Birth and Beyond’ 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.

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.
