Class on March class face-2-face in February 2021
We will present this course in two online Zoom sessions of three hours in one weekend.
Saturday 13 March ONLINE from 14.00-17.00
Sunday 14 March face -to-face from 14.00-17.15
ONLINE version: Videos are made of all the massage exercises and things we normally demonstrate. You are actually going to practise. This class is not only theory. The content will be the same as in a face-to-face class. You can easily ask all your questions and you will be in breakout rooms to chat to other participating expectant couples. Handouts will be send after each session.
This 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.
Face-to-face classes: To optimise the ventilation in the classroom we invested in a CleanAir Optima ventilation system with UV light to kill the bacteria and viruses. We advise wearing a face mask upon entering the front door and while moving around in the classroom. While seated during the workshop facemasks may be removed if you wish.
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.
2121: after the lockdown we go back to One-day face-to-face course in small groups. During lunch you can interact with other couples. After lunch 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. We finish with an empowering birthing film. You go home with hard copy handouts with homework, summaries and a timeline for dads during labour.
