A seven-hour Sunday session in English for expectant mothers (over 26 weeks pregnant) and their partners, who want to prepare for the birth of their baby in one day in Amsterdam, and now also in Haarlem!
The One Sunday course is an informative if intensive workshop and bridges the gap between the five-evening sessions and the Childbirth Preparation Class 3.0 crash course. I’ll explain how the Dutch system works. We will practise the various breathing exercises in the different stages of your birth and cover a number of back massage and relaxing techniques. I’ll explain the different possibilities about pain relief.
After a hot lunch at a restaurant where you can interact with other couples, we take time for trying out different birthing positions that can be useful during labour. At the end of the day you have the opportunity to share ideas with other couples and we do a rehearsal Time line puzzle to see if everything you learned today is clear. We finish with an empowering birthing film. You go home with hard copy handouts with homework, summaries and a timeline for dads during labour.
