Abstract [en]

Prospective parents in Sweden are offered antenatal education led by midwives. The composition of some classes is based on the family situation, and in Stockholm an LGBTQ-certified maternity clinic offers separate classes for LGBTQ parents. Women who attend separate antenatal classes for LGBTQ parents are generally highly satisfied with the programme. They emphasize that they feel comfortable with it, and that the discussed topics are relevant to them. On the contrary, women who attend regular antenatal education, in classes with different-sex couples, reflect on hetero-normativity in the education - midwives focus on stereotypic gender roles, and non-birth mothers’ situation is overlooked when the classes are divided into separate sub-groups for (pregnant) mothers and (non-pregnant) fathers.
