Dad’s Day

Workshop for dads to-be

Would you like to be as involved as possible with your baby from the very beginning? And do you want to learn how to best support your partner at the birth and in the first weeks postpartum?

This three hours workshop is for you!

You will learn how to navigate the transition to fatherhood and find your ground in this life changing experience.

“A fantastic workshop with Louise and the other dads! 
Has calmed me down immensely.”

~ Niclas, first time dad to-be

Learn how you can support your wife during pregnancy, labour and birth and why you make a world of difference in the postpartum days as well.

We will show how to comfort your baby in the early and late hours and how to support your wife best possible.  We will create the opportunity for you to share your hopes and worries about your new role as a father and for the new family dynamics with the other dads to-be.

When you sign up for this workshop you also get:

  • Our eBook “Guide to prenatal check-ups in the Danish public healthcare system”
  • Video guides on how to support your partner during pregnancy, labour and birth

We recommend that you chose a workshop that gives you at least one month before your baby is expected to arrive.
