Welcome to Our Birth preparation course at Ullevål patient hotel! Many questions come to mind towards the end of a pregnancy. The labor itself is the last part that most people have many thoughts, feelings, and questions about.

Oslo Midwife and Ultrasound Clinic is establishing Birth preparation courses held at Ullevål hospital to make you and your partner better prepared for the days prior to going into labor and birth.

As nurse/midwifes at an Obstetrics ward, our experience is that preparations for  birth, with information and increased knowledge about the process itself, will enhance the feelings of safety and a better experience of control for the woman laboring.

This also goes for the partner.
