We are both birth partners who deeply love woman giving birth. Elisabeth is midwife at Hospital Sant Joan de Déu and Vicky is doula since 2010. The aim of our antenatal classes is to improve your skills and confidence, as well as preparing you for a positive birth experience. We would like to help both partners get involved in the preparation for labour, birth and early parenthood.
In October we start a new group in Barcelona.
- On Wednesdays in Enric Granados 135, 3-1 (between Paris and Corsega) (7th , 14th , 21th and 28th of October and 4th of November).
The course is five sessions and there are two options:
OPTION A: Only theoretical. The coursetakes from 19h to 20h and it costs 100€.
The topics covered are:

In addition to the theoretical part, there is an adequate corporal preparation to enjoy your pregnancy and birth next to your partner. You will experiment how breathing and movement can be allies in your birth.
[…]We took anti natal classes. Their calm, positive and loving attitude calmed me down big time, gave me trust and prepared us for our little miracle. I can’t recommend her enough! I truly believe all couples; especially expat couples need someone like them by their side.

[…]We felt they gave good advice and information with no bias as to which options were the best for us. Her knowledge and experience of different birth scenarios helped us to prepare the birth plan that we wanted and her vibrant and friendly personality kept us calm and made us feel supported and cared for throughout the process.
