This Three-weekly course is a compact mix of the Five-weekly course and the One Sunday course. It consists of three sessions of two hours on a Wednesday evening.
Subjects to be handled
In the first session we explain how the Dutch healthcare system works and we practise relaxing breathing and massage exercise in the first stages of your birth. When do you call the midwife or hospital?
In the second session we do more breathing exercises for the advanced stages of your birth and cover a number of back massage and relaxing techniques, in other words: we practise together how your partner can support you. We also talk about various pain-relief possibilities.
In the third and final session we focus on birthing positions and what to expect straight after birth and during the first week.
A baby reunion will be organised after all your babies are born.
The course will be presented by my colleague Marieke Wildeman, an experienced Dutch midwife. More information on my website “About Marieke”.
