We felt 100% Prepared
Asking and getting all our questions answered:
Can’t say enough good things about the birthing workshop with Camilla. Before going, my husband and I didn’t really know what to expect, about the class itself and birth and labor in general. It was really great to have such a small group of people, meet other expectant mothers and have to the opportunity to listen to Camilla’s great advice as well as ask her as many questions or wonderings we had. Upon finishing the day, we felt much more knowledgeable about what to expect and felt prepared if any complications were to arise.
I definitely recommend this workshop to help you feel prepared and ready, as well as to meet others going through the same thing as yourself. It’s nice to know you’re not alone! K.
We are now a team ! I can’t even imagine how many couple you have helped on an almost indescribable level.
Camilla’s class not only exceeded our any expectations we have but left us both feeling incredibly buoyant and even maybe a little excited about the prospect of taking this journey together. Camilla is all at once, funny, relaxed, amazingly informative and knowledgeable about techniques and latest research but also about the emotional side of what goes into giving birth and becoming a parent. I walked out feeling like I could easily tackle what was ahead and feeling much, much less worried about it. This from someone who had readily decided that I wanted an epidural and to try to block out as much of the birthing experience at first convenience before doing the class.
It also made my partner feel much more like he was an integral part of the process and brought us so much closer as we felt like we were going into this with our eyes open and as a team.
I had Camilla’s birth class recommended to me by another Copenhagen expat, as a great one to take for an English speaker. I went in with a lot of anxiety, not only around an already difficult pregnancy but also birthing, navigating the medical system in a foreign country and what comes after that. To be honest, I wasn’t at all expecting any of that anxiety to be quelled by a birthing class – I just wanted to dispel some of the mystery surrounding birth as a first-timer.
Thank you Camilla! You were made to do this and I can’t even imagine how many couple you have helped on an almost indescribable level.
I knew Camilla’s classes would be perfect for us after watching her YouTube interviews and the free material on Camilla’s website.
Camilla looked to me as a curious person who are never afraid to questions the things she’s learned to ensure it’s the best option, technique or procedure and also Camilla seems to me as a person ready to learn, broaden perspectives though always grounded and routed in research.
The birth class was beyond our expectations.
First of all I was amazed that Camilla taught a 6-7 hour class with energy, passion and ability to keep our attention all the way through! Awesome! The set up was beautiful and it was such a great idea to share lunch together. It was a wonderful opportunity to connect with other sweet and likeminded parents.
I can best describe Camilla’s class by comparing to when looking at an abstract painting, where you can’t quite make clear what is going on. But then imagine the painter comes to you and begin to explain what is on the picture. As he/she is pointing to random shapes suddenly an image appears to you and now you are able to experience its beauty. Camilla is the artist and she will help you to see the beauty in birth. We are only able to experience and see what we have been taught to see.
Camilla will broaden your perspective so that you are able to create a perfect birth, no matter how it turns out, whether at home, at the hospital or in the car, whether a c section or natural birth, whether with medicine or no, you can have, and you deserve a perfect birth. Camilla will dress you so that you are able to make the best decisions for you and your baby !
5 stars! I attended Camilla’s birth-class together with my partner June 2019
We both feel ready
” I wanted to thank you for the workshop, for your patience with all questions, for your openness and your extensive knowledge. I am so happy that we found you as your workshop totally fulfilled my expectations, but also my husband. I now feel ready and peaceful when thinking about the upcoming birth of our baby, and this is the best feeling I could ever have!
Also, and not to underestimate :), my husband also really liked it and I can feel that these hours gave us both great tools and trust in ourselves! We already started the « half an hour a day about the baby » :)”
Thank you a million and see you soon, maybe
Knowledge about the danish healtcare options
Both are now prepared:
The workshop takes place in a cozy environment, where you are able to feel relaxed while you learn about the birth phases, what is expected and even what can go wrong. Moreover, as a woman you gain confidence on what your own body can achieve during labor and birth, while your partner learns how he can be there for you.
Camilla guided us through birth process in the Danish healthcare system – which might be very different to your own country’s – and she answered all questions we had during the workshop. Even after some weeks, she continues to guide us and answer any doubts we might have.
Dear all upcoming fathers (and mothers) I would like to share a story with you.
Father: Camilla is one of the Greatest teachers I have ever met.
The way she delivered her knowledge and experience made me feel I could have assisted my wife effectively even without the help of a midwife. Actually the midwife said we handled the labor extremly well
Dear all upcoming fathers (and mothers) I would like to share a little story with you. When my wife Lene started to attended yoga classes at Camillas yoga studio she often told me – with great enthusiasm – about the little talks they had about their pregnancy before the workout started. I thought to myself “wow she is going to be extremely well prepared for her upcoming birth”. One day Lene told me that Camilla were having a private seminar for both moms and dads (to be) I immediately said “I would love to attend” l’m a pilot by profession and I always give my crew a thorough briefing before a flight. I always feel very comfortable when things have been discussed and looked upon from all angles before we set out on our journey, – as if my comfort zone has been expanded beyond what is needed.
After a whole day of Camillas teachings about birth and every aspect covered in every way – I felt ready for a “flight” were anything could happen – and I would still come out on top. When my wife went into labor everything happened very quickly. The water broke in a big splash and time between contractions was immediately less than 30 seconds. At the hospital Lene opened up in about 2 hours – the master plan was scratched and we had to improvise. Things happened so fast that the midwife didn’t have time to sedate my wife. She bravely kept going through the pain assisted by her breathing techniques only. I cried a little every time she had to fight through a contraction. But somehow – at the same time – I felt calm and composed. I owe that to Camillas teachings. We kept breathing together and I assisted on the oxygen mask when needed. I was prepared for everything – when they had to extract blood from my sons head to read his vital levels to see if we could proceed safely or had to revert to other measures I knew exactly what was going on.
mely well. Today we’re the proud parents of little Sebastian. We wish you the very best with your labor and hope it will be as positive an experience as our was. Anders
Empowering and beliveing in my abilities
From fear to confidence:
“I was terrified of giving birth in a foreign country, not speaking the language or understanding the system. I had gone to all the normal midwife and doctors appointments but still felt I was lacking information.
Then I was fortunate enough to attend one of Camilla’s preparation for birth classes. She was calm, competent, knowledgeable and so nice. I felt completely relaxed and it was easy to open up to her and ask her my questions.
I am now relaxed and feeling confident in my abilities as a woman to give birth, and also in the abilities of the hospital staff and the danish system. It was the best 4 hours I have ever spent and I cannot recommend this course highly enough. I am truly grateful to Camilla for empowering me and helping me to prepare for my birth. Merry Haarder.”
It really helps to have taken the class
“I have always believed that childbirth education is worth checking out even if the only thing you are sure about your birth is that you are getting an epidural. The classes provided by Camilla were very enlightening and provided detailed information about what to expect when in labor. The fact that Camilla is a midwife and is fully aware of how it happens on the “backstage” is great and very reassuring. My husband also enjoyed the sessions and took a lot out of it. The breathing and natural pain relievers taught by Camilla were very helpful during labor and I am very grateful for taken part on these sessions”. Andrea
