Weekend Group Course – Childbirth Education

APERIO has offered childbirth education since 2002 and has always been cooperating with well-experienced childbirth educators, midwives and doulas. Moreover, since 2002 we publish and update a guide of maternity hospitals. All our classes for expectant parents are therefore a rich source of dependable information on having a baby in the Czech Republic.

Our one-day childbirth education class in English is designed for expectant parents who wish to take part in an intensive small-group course in Prague. The course offers a specific time to focus on pregnancy and childbirth, with the aim to make the whole process more real – especially for expectant fathers. It is also an opportunity to meet other parents-to-be and socialize. You will also learn about specifics of Czech maternity care.

Due to epidemiology situation are lessons streamed online via Zoom. 
I am glad we can provide interesting CBE full of inspiration and information online as well as in person.
Lookung forward to connect to you in your favorite armchair. 🙂

Rebeka Švecová – Is a midwife with a bachlores degree, a graduate of the Aperio Academy of Antenatal Lecturers and a lactation consultant. She is the mother of 3 small children and therefore has her own experiences in relatively recent memory. „This period of life has always fascinated me, but it was only through my own children that I realized how profound the changes are and at the same time what little things can make the journey more difficult or easier. I would like to pass on this personal and professional experience to other women who are interested and in need.“
