The purpose of the labor and childbirth coaching is to guide the mother through childbirth that is as comfortable as possible. The need and content of the coaching is formed based on the individual needs of the mother.
The coaching can be done either individually or in group.
The mother’s support person has an opportunity to participate and it is hoped that they do participate in the coaching.
The client herself determines the number of coaching sessions. A typical coaching period is 3 – 4 hours in sessions with various duration.
Childbirth coaching may also be done by house calls.
Starting the childbirth coaching is appropriate usually only after the week 30 of the pregnancy.
