Antenatal Classes

Geneva

Expat midwie Geneva

Antenatal classes are a great way to prepare you and your partner for the birth and life with your baby.

 

Calm Birth&Baby interactive classes are designed to prepare you for the journey ahead, including pregnancy, birth, and life with baby. Classes will help you to make informed choices and answer your questions. ​

 

I have been teaching antenatal classes to parents-to-be  for 7 years and led many lectures targeted to student midwives and midwives on how to teach antenatal classes. My years of practical experience working on delivery suit, birth center, and community will bring the whole experience to life.

Calm Birth & Baby offers 4 classes lasting 90 minutes for one-to-one sessions and  120 minutes for group classes.

All classes are taught in English. You can chose to have your classes one-to-one at the comfort of your home, through skype or in a group.
