According to Dutch government guidelines childbirth classes have to be online as long as there is a lockdown (and curfew).
ONLINE version: videos are shown 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.
Face-to-face: Maximum of six couples in the class to guarantee the 1½ meter distance.
To optimise the ventilation in the classroom, we have invested in a CleanAir Optima ventilation system with UV light that kills bacteria and viruses. We advise you to wear a face mask upon entering the front door and while moving around in the classroom. While seated during the workshop, face masks may be removed if you wish.
Three-weekly Childbirth Preparation Course
This Three-weekly course is a compact version of the Five-weekly course. The major difference with the Five-weekly course is that there will be less time for group discussions and rehearsal simply because it is only three sessions of two hours. There will be a baby reunion after all your babies have been born.
