Birthpreparation in Copenhagen and Nordsjælland <3

Being pregnant in Denmark
It can be challenging to be pregnant, and at the same time maybe also new in Denmark. Away from family and friends, not knowing anything about Danish birthculture and how the birth will be, what to expect from danish healthcare and midwifes here in DK.

That is why Yogamidwife offers a full day with all info on the birth, a 100% preparation for birth with practical, theoretical, body, breath and movement workshop for couples – no other class is needed after you have participated here – and it will also give you the opportunity to form new network in Denmark with other parents to be
We have met so many wonderful couples, the last 12 years, and are happy that they are driving all the way here from Copenhagen, Roskilde, Nordsjælland Lyngby Hillerød Helsingør to prepare for birth, and we will be happy to also wellcome you and your family

Next meeting

English workshop for couples 100%
Time: 12.00 – 18.30
Date: 06.10 2018
Price: 1500 kr (tilskud fra danmark)

At the workshop you will meet other couples that are from all over the world, they are in the same situation. A long way from family and support during pregnancy and less help in the following months with a small baby. It can be a real life saver to form a new family-baby network so you can support each other

In Denmark usually the Nurse- Sundhedsplejerske form a mothergroup – but usually they speak danish  – We have made an initiative and will help you form Mothergroups in your own area – they are forming right now and you can create your own even before birth, please join the Yogamidwife international couples group on FB, we are trying to form groups for all new families, help us share the initiative, so all new international families will be abel to form network in Denmark

1. Birthworkshop  – prepare for birth – couples
English birth preparing classes. We will talk about natural birth, and what can happen during birth, if the birth does`nt progress as planed. What can midwifes and doctors do to help you in theese situations. What is possible in Denmark, medical help, birthing positions, massage, train the important birthbreath and learn about the body pain reliefe system. You will learn how to use the body and breath and we have a body-breath movement workshop included so you and your partner know exactly how to give birth and when to use the different Yogamidwife birthing technics, that includes, birth breath, movements, massage, the most important, and  crucial support, both physical and mental support,  and how to do a “body-reading” and how to communicate during birth so you know what is needed as support and how you get the support you need. communication is important between all helpers and the woman.

How is it to be the father or helper during birth, what is expected and how is life in the new family. The day will be just as relevant for the mother and the father, and will fully prepare you for birth. I belive that knowledge will make you feel calm, ready and prepared.
You will learn to give massage and will recieve a number of questions before the actual class so the day will be tailormade, for the participating couples. You will not need other preparation classes, its in one day and all is included.

Many couples becomes friends after the class and can help, support and follow eachother after birth. The class is right now, only available, in Nordsjælland Kokkedal/Karlebo in my yogacenter because I am still affected after an accident.
When you write for a new class, that is`nt listet, then we arrange the date and time together, and you can influence the date and time. usually 11.oo-17.oo on weekends
Price 1500 kr for couples, see the menu Tilmeld hold  for dates, or how to join the infolist if there isn’t a date yet. You can follow the class online if you cant be here.

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 extre

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

 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.”

Detailed Information: “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  

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.

Amazing: I wanted to say thank you again

for the class on Sunday. It was really nice to have a face-to-face
talk with someone and get good, practical advice from a friendly
person! I also saw a message from my husband to his mum saying that the class was
‘amazing and really helpful’ so I think you helped to take his head
out of the sand 😉 we really did find the class incredibly helpful in a down-to-earth and
interesting way, and feel much better prepared from it. Thank you!

 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.


Yoga eneboer-tilværelsen er nødvendig

Jeg er et rimelig privat menneske, godt nok skriver jeg lidt indimellem, primært fordi jeg er syg og en del vil høre hvordan det står til, og hvad jeg går og hygger med af projekter, men ellers så foregår det meste af mig og mit arbejde sådan hjemme og altid alene uden samarbejdspartnere.Jeg tror jeg har haft brug for at være fordybet alene med mit fag de sidste 16 år, med gravide og yogaelever og terapi-behandlinger, alene for at finde min vej, fordybe mig helt og mærke min vinkel.

Igennem Yogavejen har jeg oplevet at det meste viden faktisk er inden i og det er her jeg er mest, hvis jeg skal noget, skal det være rigtig vigtigt for en anden eller mig. Jeg kommer kun ud af yogahulen hvis nogen eller noget kalder. Jeg har aldrig haft lyst til at skulle dele mit liv med andre eller udvikle undervisning i et samarbejde, da jeg har haft nok at gøre med at udvikle min lille familie og Yogajordemoder. Man kan bruge energi på en masse og søge rigtig meget udenfor en selv, men hvis ikke det er det rigtige, så er energien spildt, og de sidste 5 år har jeg primært brugt energien helt rigtigt, med at komme til at kunne bevæge mig rundt, få de bedste omkring mig og starte med arbejde igen. Få og vigtige projekter har jeg sagt ja til men alle offentlige  interview og lign er altid til grundig gennemlæsning før jeg sådan står frem med holdninger eller lign, ( det er det kontakt med formiddagspressen gør ved en) De fleste har jeg sagt nej til, men der er nye tider her hos Yogajordemoder, Åbenbart, og det føles meget meget rart.

Nyeste udvikling er at jeg underviser på online streaming,   det er ret sjovt i øvrigt, og jeg har lige sammensat et mavetræningsforløb til folk med diastase og dem der lige har født. Jeg deler erfaringer til bøger som konsulent, giver viden videre om bækkenbunden til ALT for damerne og sidste hyggelige møde, delte jeg lidt hos kanal 1 i programmet Doula, uden redigering og ren impro. Dejligt at lande i at have lyst til samarbejde og lyst til at dele med flere end de elever der kommer her hos mig. Alt det jeg har holdt mig fra, føles nu egentlig meget rart og giver en masse nye spændende muligheder og inspiration og glæde.

Jeg tror det at være så isoleret i en lang sygdomsperiode hvor man knapt kan sidde op og snakke, og har haft så ondt at selv lyd smerter, har gjort at jeg har mærket hvad der er og hvem der er vigtige for mig at dele med, jeg har kun haft lidt energi og den er blevet brugt via andre kanaler og igennem en hel ny transformation af værdier.

De sidste 14 dage har faktisk også virkelig stået i fællesskabet og i læringens tegn, samarbejde og udvikling og det ser ud til at fortsætte. Her er 3 jordemødre Hannah fra mexico og Line der havde inviteret hende til at undervise i forbindelse med women deliver konferencen i KBH og så undertegnede der kunne nyde at ligge i yogacentret og slappe helt af imens ny inspiration og søde mennesker fyldte hele huset.


Yogacentret har været fyldt med Jordemødre, Doulaer, fødselspraktikere og andre med interesse for fødsler, energi og kvinders kroppe.

En mexicansk jordemoder var på besøg og lærte os at bruge rebozo, alignment af bækken, mavemassage og ritualer efter fødslen. Det var en stor oplevelse både at møde Hannah og en masse med samme interesse og at dele vores virke med andre, vores firmaer som alle er vores hjertebørn. Man kan ikke undgå at mærke at alle hver især brænder fuldstændigt for kvinder og fødsler og vores arbejde er det samme som os, der blev knyttet bånd og nye samarbejdes muligheder er der åbnet op for.

Vi er vist vores arbejde, alt drejer sig om, mod, til og med kvinder og fødsler. Jeg mødte mine gamle jordemoder kollegaer fra Hillerød , folk jeg har interviewet og lært fra og nye kollegaer og yogalærer-kollegaer og en ny bølge af fødselshjælpere bla Christina Hedegaard Jørgensen, der også har et tv program der går i dybden med fødsler og alt hva dertil hører FANTASTISK at have et helt program der ugentligt inspirerer og bringer viden frem til os der arbejder med fødsler og alle de familier der skal føde. Se det nyeste program her, hvor jeg er interviewet sammen med Fanny og Storm om de fødeteknikker jeg underviser i. Se programmet her



Spinning babies
Nogle andre søde kvinder der var i huset i weekenden er Karina og Louise og de har arrangeret besøg af spinning babies. Jeg viderebringer muligheden til alle jer, der måske ikke har set at spinning babies kommer til Danmark i Juni md og der er mulighed for at få en plads på den ene workshop, se info fra dem lige her nederst på bloggen


Kærlig opfordring
Så med alt dette nye her hos mig, ønsker jeg dig en masse ny inspiration til at åbne op og dele og undersøge hvem der lige er omkring dig og om det er det rigtige fællesskab du er i, om du måske også kunne komme lidt ud over stepperne og inspirere og blive inspireret. Ønsker dig en dejlig weekend. Jeg skal samarbejde med Line om mor-barn workshop og NLP coaches af skønne Jasmin og dele mine ønsker og indre verden, håber du får lyst til at starte samarbjede med nogen eller komme ud og lærer nogle nye skønne mennesker at kende og vær sand vær modig og mærk efter om de vibrerer i hjertet. Og hvis du er en af dem der heeeeele tiden søger uden for dig selv, så undersøg det at være alene og blive glad for hvor levende du er inden i, lad det blomstre i stilhed, helt alene og se hvad der sker.


En særlig kærlig hilsen til dem omkring mig, der har kaldt min sjæl ud, fra den lidt meditative eneboertilværelse, fedt i kaldte, og jeg er her nu,  ihvertfald med 1 øje



Kærlige mange samarbejdsagtige hilsner Camilla


Spinning Babies workshop i København 13. juni 2016

Du har nu mulighed for at lære principperne bag Spinning Babies på en heldagsworkshop i København d. 13. juni.

På Spinning Babies workshoppen får du hands-on redskaber til at identificere og hjælpe gravide og fødende med en ny tilgang til smertehåndtering, komfort, babys position og til at fremme ve-arbejdet.

På workshoppen udforsker og lærer du bl.a.

  • de bløde vævs rolle for graviditeten, fødslen og babys præsentation (muskler, ligamenter og bindevæv)
  • hvordan du skaber fremgang i en fødsel der er gået i stå gennem de tre niveauer i bækkenet, bækkenets mobilitet og frigørelse af de bløde væv
  • aktiviteter der øger komforten i graviditeten, spontant forløbne fødsler og undvigelse af kejsersnit
  • at identificere en fødsel uden fremgang via ve-mønsteret og være i stand til at matche teknikker der kan sætte skub i fødslen.

– et helt nyt præmis i arbejdet med både gravide og fødende for den erfarne behandler eller formidler.

Workshoppen henvender sig til jordemødre, doulaer, behandlere, yogalærere og andre der arbejder med gravide og fødende.

Jennifer Walker underviser på workshoppen, hun er uddannet af Gail Tully som er kvinden bag Spinning Babies. Jennifer er canadier og uddannet doula. Hun har undervist i fødselsforberedelse og været med til fødsler siden 2006, uddanner selv doulaer og underviser i Spinning Babies principperne i hele Europa.

Undervisningen foregår på let forståeligt engelsk.

Arrangører af workshoppen er Louise Timm fra MammaYoga og Karina Isolde fra Tryg Fødsel. Der er fem pladser tilbage på workshoppen mandag d. 13. juni 2016 kl. 8:30-16:30, Kbh N. Du kan tilmelde dig workshoppen via linket her:
Hvis fakturaen skal udstedes til din arbejdsplads, så skriv venligst navn, adresse og afdeling i tilmeldingsmailen, tak.
