Practical prophylaxis course
Taking a prophylaxis course is one of many ways to
prepare for childbirth. By taking a practical prophylaxis course, you increase feelings of safety and positive control before birth.

What was so rewarding about taking a practical prophylaxis course was that we got to see how we could use our own home when labor starts. It felt exciting and reassuring to imagine with these new "glasses" how we take the pains in the shower, the sofa and the kitchen. I looked forward to birth in a whole new way after this course!

We never thought a latency phase plan would make such a big difference. My wife was in labor for two nights before it was time to go in - and it was very nice to have a plan for this time!
Thanks for a great course!

We liked that the course was so hands-on; that my partner had to practice giving massages and other things you can do to make me relax and relieve pain. I had read many books about childbirth before the course, and felt that this was exactly what was needed to feel confident before our big day.

My husband and I have attended both Birth without fear and practical prophylaxis with Your Pregnancy Coach. The courses were great and complemented each other. We felt after Feed without fear how important it was with practical exercises and we really got more of this product during practical prophylaxis. A big plus that it was in our home environment!

What is the difference between Birth without fear and Practical prophylaxis course?
What is the difference between our two childbirth preparation courses? Birth without fear (BWF) is a well-established method that offers knowledge about the physiology of birth and provides strategies for how you can together face and manage the labor contractions during childbirth using the four tools of breathing, relaxation, voice and thought. Within BWF, the practical part is decisive for the value of the course - it is when you train together that the best of preparations is created!
Practical prophylaxis (PP) is a private course that can be seen as both an in-depth study and a supplement to BWF, where you gain expanded knowledge about how, based on your individual thoughts, needs and conditions, you can optimally prepare for birth. The focus is on finding out what works for you, exploring how you can use your own home during the latency phase, guidance in formulating a birth letter, discussing birth positions, testing tools such as TENS machine and Rebozo shawl, practicing massage and other pain relief techniques etc.
You can choose to take the courses separately or to take a combo course where you get to take part in the core of both courses with emphasis on your personal preferences. The combo course is four hours and costs SEK 3,200 in your home or SEK 2,800 in our premises in Röstånga. You can use your fitness-allowance for all of our prophylaxis courses.
