  • “Stationäre Behandlung während der Schangerschaft” : if you have been hospitalized during your pregnancy
  • “Cardiotokoghraphische Befunde”: Findings regarding a performed CTG     (monitoring of the baby heart beat )

And if you are still teaching for a birth preparation class I can only recommend this Midwifery Praxis in Berlin, Prenzlauer Berg.
