Research show that if you and your partner feel calm and confident, know what to do, the result and experience will be better. Not rocket science, we know, but what that means is that it as important for you as her partner to be prepared.

"Your birth is important. It will effect your whole life. Well prepared, it can become an empowering experience, instead of something you just survive." Anna Wilsby Frisk

In this course Anna will guide you through five modules that cover:

  • The Birth Process (what happens and basic breathing techniques)
  • The Role of The Partner (how to give her the best possible support, massage, positions and pain relief alternatives)
  • Mental Strategies and Tools (how to diminish fears, find and keep your focus both mentally and physically)
  • The Birth, Baby and Body (how to take care of your body and get a good start with your baby)
  • Meditations and Audios (easy access audios and meditations for the different breathing gears and mental focus)

Most of the exercises are practical, but there are some written assignments and exercises which also can be downloaded. You will get access to summaries and a positive birth affirmation video for your daily inspiration. Whenever you need you can pause the different parts or do it again.

Coping Techniques with Better Results

Anna Wilsby Frisk is the woman who started this unique way of preparing for birth in Febuary 2001. Several studies have been conducted based on her concept. The content in AnnasProfylax is also based on scientific evidence as well as her own experience as a doula and birth practitioner.

"I do not only want you to like the course and have a good birth - I want you to have a good result. Happy baby, body and birth!" Anna Wilsby Frisk

Apart from educating pregnant couples and mothers, she also has seminars and certifies midwives, nurses and doctors. Two books, this webcourses and training videos has been produced over the years. ”I truly believe every woman and every man is worth having a birth where they can feel in control and that they have their own tools. If you have the possibilty to join a course it´s perfect, but it is also possible to learn by reading or watching this online course.” says Anna.

This is how one woman, mother of two, described Anna and her new book:

”I only want to say that Anna Wilsby Frisks touches you on a whole new level. I feel it in my heart, and I am so grateful that people like her exists. Someone who dares to grab life and really see it, and helps others do the same. Beautiful is what it is.” (Anna Sandström)

Conscious Adaptive Breathing

Contractions are different, some stronger and longer than others. Anna teaches what she calls conscious adaptive breathing, i.e. how you adapt your breathing to every contraction. The Birth Project has different themes and parts:

  1. Deep breathing and relaxation – The first part of the birth process
  2. Medium, second gear breathing – The second, active part of the birth process.
  3. Shallow, third gear, breathing – The third and most intensive part of the birth process.
  4. Mental preparation – What we focus on expand. How can you prepare mentally and how does your thoughts affect you and your birth?
  5. Massage – Calming massage and grips in different positions. Effective massage gives good painrelief and produces the important hormone oxytocin.
  6. Coaching – What you as her partner can do, say and think when she gives birth. How can you give her the best support?
  7. Pushing – How can you learn to push as gently and effective as possible? Learn which muscels are at work and how you can practise beforehand.




Bonus: Coming home with your baby and how to get the best possible start.

Our recommendation is that you do one module at a time – thereafter you can go back and forth to those parts you feel you need to repeat. The total length, included exercises, is about 7 hours (depending on how much time you put on the exercises). In every part Anna presents the subject, demonstrates the exercise herself together with the couples. After each segment you will be recommended to pause the film and do the same exercise. Apart from the different exercises we recomend you to watch the inspirational film many times.

Practise, practise, practise…

Instead of hoping that you will get an easy birth, pretend you are preparing for a Marathon! If you feel you can handle long and strong contractions, if you know how to think to stay on track, if you know how to keep you energy high and team up with your partner – then you will have the margins in your side.

It is better to practise a little bit every day, rather than for a long time seldom. Also, DO the diffrent exercises, don´t just watch. You want the relization IN your body so that it knows what to do when it is time.

When to do the Course?

You can do the course at any time during your pregnancy, but from the 29th week the pregnancy becomes very ”real”, which is good for inspiration, and at the same time you have time to practise should the baby arrive early. Again, it is good to have time to practise, it is well invested time.

Recommendation from a midwife

BREATHE, RELAX, REST… Glad to hear how well AnnasProfylax prebirth web course works. Profylax means preventive – how to minimize the risk of problems occuring during birth. It is something I´m as your birth coach is passionate about. The midwife Mersa tells us about a night at the clinic in the south of Sweden:

”Last week I took care of a couple that were expecting their 1st child. During pregnancy they had practised with AnnasProfylax Web Course. The couple used the different techniques from the course during the whole birth and they had such a nice team work. The partner supported the mother with her breathing and relaxation, encouraging her when it was tough, helping her with various massage techniques. When the woman lost control of her breathing, her partner was immediately there, reminding her to breathe, breathing together with her.

They had brought with them a baby body, which the newly born baby was going to wear after birth. They also had a small teddy bear to remind them of where they were heading. Each time the contractions were threatening to knock her over, she was asked to look at the body and the teddy bear to stay on track – it worked very well. The man stayed close the whole time and kept repeating, all through birth these three words: Breathe, relax, rest. The birth took 10 hours and was completed with a beautiful birth.

As a midwife, I was very impressed by their birth and their nice collaboration. Had I known it was going to be such a beautiful birth, I would have recorded it to show in class to other parents.”




 

Voices About the Web Course



”Thank you so much for the online course - it has been incredibly useful!.”
Susanne and Edward


”When it was time for us to go to a Lamaze class, we couldn´t find one where we live in Kalmar (in the south of Sweden), so we decided to try out the webcourse. The positive thing is that you can do the course when you have time and at the pace you feel like. We both feel we got good tools for our birth!”

Lise-Lotte Wallin, Kalmar

”My friends talked well about AnnasProfylax, but neither my partner nor I felt like going to a course with other people. The thought of sitting and brbeathing in a group didn´t feel comfortable. Therefore the webcourse felt like a good alternative fort us. We could relax more sitting at home in our sofa doing the exercises. I think a webbased course like this one, can help more people to take the step and try it out.”

Anna Lind och Micael Flender


”My doctor said I had to lie in bed during the pregnancy, so we couldn´t attend an ordinary course. We thought the webcourse was perfectly clear, concret and a good lenght. One advantage is that you can do the course when you want to.”

Görel och Meta Welff
