IN this guide we focus on the prenatal check-ups offered by the public healthcare system here in Denmark—what to expect from them and how to navigate them—and we provide a basic introduction to your rights and options.
As women, mothers and birth keepers we feel very passionately that you should be able to know your options and rights—what you can ask for. In our experience these options and rights can sometimes be hard to understand.
We have worked as childbirth educators and doulas for more than 20 years, and we have often seen expecting expats and parents-to-be who are new in Denmark find it difficult to navigate our public healthcare system.
We know that even in a country where almost everyone is comfortable having conversations in English, you can still find that information gets lost in translation.
So, we hope that this guide will help you to get the best out of the public healthcare system in Denmark during your pregnancy.
