This course is based on principles of contact parenting, developmental and relationship psychology, and evidence-based medicine.

We know from our own experience that childbirth can also be an opportunity for self-discovery and self-development and have been organising independent modern antenatal courses in Aperio since 2001.

In small groups, there is plenty of space for your questions. The course is packed with information, hands-on tips, demonstrations of relieving exercises and relaxation techniques. We strongly support that both of the partners take part in the course.

We recommend attending the course between the 16th and 34th week of pregnancy, ideally in the sixth or seventh month.

What will you learn?

How will I know that the labour has started?

  • We will help you understand your body's signals. You will learn to recognise when it is better to wait at home and when you should go to the maternity hospital.
  • What the key stages of childbirth are, and how they proceed.
  • We will discuss the examinations you may undergo and preparation for admission to the delivery room.
  • We will also provide you with a list of recommendations on what to pack with you and what can be included in the birth plan.

Will I manage?

  • We will help boost your confidence in your own body and its ability to give birth. We will also advise you on specific techniques to help your body prepare for smooth delivery.
  • We do not claim that childbirth does not hurt, but we know what positions and tricks help relieve the pain.
  • We will also discuss possible medical interventions in the first and second stages of labour. We will advise you on how to be assertive if needed.
  • Yours and your child’s safety is our number one priority. Modern scientific knowledge, years of experience and respect for your decision are essential.

The role of the partner

  • We believe that a woman should have a close person of her choice by her side during this special moment in their lives. During the course, your partner will gain confidence and information on how they can effectively support the smooth flow of childbirth.
  • In our courses, the partner is not just makeweight. Do you know how the birth experience can also strengthen you as a partner? We will focus on that as well.

Postpartum and breastfeeding with ease

  • Six weeks after giving birth is the time when the body and mind return to "normal". We will talk about preparing for the postpartum period and what to prepare at home.
  • What do you need to know for a smooth start in breastfeeding? We will advise you on how to avoid the most common issues.
  • If you want to prepare even more thoroughly for your first weeks with your baby, we recommend booking our Individual Course.

Švecová

educator, midwife, lactation consultant

Is a midwife with a bachelor's degree, a graduate of the Aperio Academy of Childbirth Educators and a lactation consultant. She is the mother of 3 small children and therefore has her own experiences in relatively recent memory. „This period of life has always fascinated me, but it was only after having my own children that I realised how profound the changes are and at the same time how little things can make the journey more difficult or easier. I want to pass on this personal and professional experience to other women who are interested and who might need it.“

This course made us as future parents calmer and more relaxed for sure. We have received good explanations on all the steps from birth and postpartum. The most beneficial for us was information on how Czech hospitals work and what to expect there. Thank you!
