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.
