Welcome to Mamamundo

Standorte Bern Biel/Bienne Solothurn Lucerne Basel

Childbirth classes in your language

At our birth preparation courses, migrants get information and counseling on pregnancy, birth and the important period that follows childbirth. The course gives you the opportunity to share your experiences with other women and ask your own questions in an atmosphere of trust. 
Our relaxation and bodily exercises support you and your child's well-being during pregnancy. 
Future fathers/companions are also welcome to join certain of the seven course meetings. The courses are open to all women living in the canton of Bern.

“Ich habe viel gelernt. Der Kurs hat mir viel gegeben es ist ein grosser Unterschied zu vorher. Alles wäre neu gewesen.”
