Terms and Conditions


We look forward to having you here with us! The Hebammerie is a cooperative community. All the midwives and course leaders take full responsibility. Mutually liability is hereby expressly excluded.


Die Anmeldung zu den Kursen erfolgt ausschließlich schriftlich und elektronisch über unser Online-Anmeldeformular. Verbindlich wird die Anmeldung mit Erhalt der Bestätigungs-Email, die Sie nach der Anmeldung von uns erhalten.


Registration for the courses is exclusively in writing and electronically via our online registration form. The registration becomes binding upon receipt of the confirmation email that you will receive after your registration has been fully processed.

Cancellation of the course by the course instructor

The midwife or course leader reserves their right to cancel the course up to one week before the start of the course if the number of participants is too low, or for other urgent reasons. Of course, the Hebammerie will try to offer a replacement course from our range of courses provided.


The following applies to booked courses and workshops: cancellation is possible free of charge up to 14 days before the start of the course. This must be sent by email to: welcome@hebammerie.de.

The following applies to individual treatment bookings: your booked appointment must be canceled at least 24 hours before the start of the treatment. Please write an email to the following email address: welcome@hebammerie.de

After this grace period, you (and the person accompanying you, e.g. partner courses) will be charged in full for the course or treatment. This consists of the fee paid by insurance, the partner amount, if applicable, and any extra costs. If the course place can be occupied by a waiting place, you will be informed and may withdraw from the course after the 14 day grace period has expired.

Cost Coverage for Midwife-led childbirth preparation and postnatal care courses

For women with state health insurance, the course fees are settled directly with the health insurance company. However, missed classes cannot be billed to the insurance company and must be paid by the participant. These are charged at 8€ per 60 minutes. This means that for a 2-hour course, you owe 16€ per missed class or session, and for a 75 minute course 10€, and so on.The reason the participation did not take place is unfortunately irrelevant. Since the course curriculum is consecutive, it is not possible to replace one class with another during the course.

Women with private health insurance must pay the fees for the course themselves (2 times the midwife fee schedule HebGO). They will receive an invoice at the end of the course,  and submit the invoice independently to their insurance company for reimbursement.

The partner’s contribution must be paid at the time of booking. However, there are some health insurance companies that reimburse this. Please check with you or your partner’s health insurance company. The midwife in charge of the course will issue a certificate of attendance at the end of the course.


If the course instructor has the appropriate additional training (e.g. yoga, Cantienica) an additional copayment is due for the specific course offered. The health insurance companies pay the hourly basic fee (according to the Hebammengebührenordnung) of the course. You then pay the copayment privately. This cannot be billed to the health insurance company, but may be tax deductible. You have the option, of course, to choose a course that is without an additional co-payment.

Course Format

Our courses are held onsite in the Hebammerie and sometimes hybrid due to state ordered distance rules. For the midwife-led childbirth classes with up to 10 couples in the room, for midwife-led postpartum classes with up to 10 women (and babies). If this is not possible, we reserve the right, even at short notice, to convert these courses into online seminars! You will be informed about the course format at least one week before the course starts!

I have read the AGB’s and accept the contractual conditions.
