Birth preparation course

Due to infection control measures against the coronavirus and a ban on indoor events, it is not currently possible to hold our courses in Ullevål’s premises with physical attendance as normal. The courses are held digitally via the webinar service Zoom.us, where the course leader is on the premises and participants participate from home via PC / Mac / Ipad / Tab / smartphone. Due to the uncertainty about when it will be possible to open up for physical attendance at our courses again, all courses up to and including July 2021 are planned to be arranged via Zoom.us.

The courses from and including August 2021 are planned for physical attendance at Ullevål’s premises. We hope this can work out as planned, but we reserve the right to do so via Zoom.us if the ban still applies starting August 2021. Please note that registration for 1 person applies to one person and not a couple. If both the pregnant woman and her partner wish to participate in a course with physical attendance (if this is possible on the relevant date for the course), 2 people must be registered (total price NOK 1,198). If courses are opened up for physical attendance in August 2021, it is very important that no more than those people registered show up to the course, due to the fact that most likely, there will still be space restrictions associated with infection control measures.


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.

NyfødtThe midwifes, that present the course, are experienced and work at an obstetrical unit.

The topics we will present are

  • Anatomy of the female
  • Pain experience
  • The mechanism of labor
  • The phases of birth, with maturity-phase, effacement of the cervix, delivery and expulsion of the placenta
  • Analgesics
  • Birth positions
  • Caesarean section
  • Criteria for staying at the hotel
  • When to contact us
  • The role of the spouse
  • 6 week control/prevention and breastfeeding

We will give you and your partner realistic information and knowledge about the birth of your child. This course will preliminary go into the normal process of birth, but we are also going to track off into other topics now and then.

It will be open to ask questions and talk to other people in the same situation in addition to us midwifes. Both first time mothers and mothers that have given child birth before are welcome to participate.

The course is in the afternoon from 16:30-20:00.

The location of the course is in zoom.us. Normally the location is at OUS, Ullevål patient hotel, Kirkeveien 166, 0450 Oslo.
