Courses and groups

Amathea offers childbirth classes for women expecting to have sole care for the child. Most offices have social gatherings for those who are have sole custody of their child.

Our goal is to increase the woman’s confidence and knowledge regarding her pregnancy, the birth and the relationship with her child. The course usually runs over four to six sessions. At our courses we will be visited by:

  • Midwife
  • The Labour and Welfare Administration (NAV)
  • The Norwegian Directorate for Children, Youth and Family Affairs (Familievernkontoret)
  • Public health nurse
  • Breastfeeding polyclinic
  • Physiotherapist/dietician
  • Guided tour of the maternity ward

There are some variations depending on your local office. Please contact us and we will send you a program.


At Amatheas social gatherings for those who are have sole custody of their child. Here you will meet others who are are alone with their child to share experiences, joys and challenges. These gatherings are completely informal, but if the group wishes to discuss certain subjects we are more than happy to do so.
