WHY GRAVIDAMIGA?  

Gravida = latin for a pregnant woman; Gravity = being grounded / rooted;  Amiga = friend in Spanish

Why are your courses not paid for by the health insurance companies?

 Our courses or basic qualifications do not always correspond 100% to the specifications that the health insurance companies have set up for themselves. Unfortunately, the system is very rigid and therefore we do not get a promise for a settlement over the insurance companies.
However, you can try to submit the invoice to your insurance company.

What is different between your birthpreparation classes compared to classes paid by the German insurance?

 The classes with Gravidamiga are more compact, but all important topics are covered. Normally in a German class are up to 15 couples. We have a maximum of 6 couples or one-on-one classes. Therefore, our course is more individual and private. 
The Gravidamiga course is held by a doctor specialized on pregnancy and birth, which is unique in Germany. 

The course is a mixture of practical and theoretical topics and half of the course is with your partner. We think this is very important, because especially in a foreign country it is so important to be a good team (you, your partner and your baby).
In Germany the courses are mostly for women only with one short partner session (for the partner session you must pay privately up to 120 €-150 €).Additionally, we talk about practical preparation for birth such as hospital procedures with a focus on giving birth in a foreign country.

main differences:
language (English), size of the course (max. 6 couples) or one-on-one , qualification of the course leader (doctor), individual, focus on the partner
plus the topic: giving birth in a foreign country

 

What is the difference between a Birth Preparation Course and Birth PReparation supported by Hypnobirthing?

These two courses complement each other.
In the classical birth preparation, besides breathing and body exercises, the informative aspects are a major topic.
In hypnobirthing you get to know yourself and your needs and how you can use hypnosis techniques & breathing techniques to make your birth anxiety-free and relaxed.

Can my partner attend the birht preparation course?

Compact Course: The first part is for women only (more intimate questions/topics), the second part is with the partner.
Information Course: The partner can attend this online session.
Private Class: The partner can attend the whole time.
 

What is the difference between your birth Preparation Course and your Birth information course?

The information course does not include breathing or physical exercises. It's more about the practical/informative aspects - when to go to the hospital, what happens in the hospital, what do I need, etc. This content is identical to the compact course.
