Trial design for Phase 2. Step 1: Participants (mothers-to-be/patients and their social support providers) are initially identified and screened for eligibility. Step 2: If eligible, participants are invited to take part in the study, give informed consent and are allocated to either the intervention group (IG, Communication training) or the control group (CG). Step 3: Pre-tests. Step 4: Participants in the intervention group complete the communication training. Step 5: Post-tests. Step 6: pAEs are assessed after the patient gave birth. Note: 1 For inclusion and exclusion criteria, see Table 6. 2 Baseline data includes baseline assessments of pAE prevalence and costs. 3 Pre-test assessment includes demographic data, perceived social support, competences, training-related outcomes, subjective safety culture and treatment satisfaction.4 Post-test assessments include perceived social support, competences and training-related outcomes. 5 At three months post-intervention, perceived social support, competences, behavior change as training-related outcome, subjective safety culture and treatment satisfaction will be assessed
