Offer to women from minority backgrounds

Norway is a multicultural society, with many minorities. Pregnancy and cohabitation are areas where the differences are evident, across cultures and generations.

Our counselors work with people with all sorts of backgrounds and are used to relate to ethnicity issues. Amathea acknowledges that this can be challenging and has the necessary resources to help in many different situations.
