PREGcare / Kit for improved childbirth


With this project, I have looked at the improvement of childbirth to prevent inner and outer vaginal tears. My aim has been to help couples during pregnancy by giving them a more active role. I wanted to help pregnant women improve their well-being as well as involve the partners more. The goal was to develop a concept that could be implemented today and to create a topic, that questions how childbirth is today and shows a vision on how it could be if the pregnant couple was the main focus of birth. I wanted to show the importance of quality of life and that childbirth both could and should be questioned and looked into more to improve it.
