One weekend birth preparation course, August・Childbirth Class Gale I Amsterdam

August 17 @ 2:30 pm - 6:00 pm


We present the one-weekend course over two sessions, face-2-face.

Saturday afternoon and a Sunday morning. You can digest the first part of the class in the evening, and come back the next day to recap day one, learn more about birthing positions and  interventions, and discuss your birth plan with other couples.
(Maximum class size is seven or eight couples).

This course is in English for expectant mothers (around 30-35 weeks pregnant) and their partners, who want to prepare for the birth of their baby in one weekend.

To optimise the ventilation in the classroom we have invested in a CleanAir Optima ventilation system with UV light.

This weekend course is an informative if intensive workshop and bridges the gap between the five-evening sessions and the Childbirth Preparation Class in four hours.  We describe how the Dutch system works. We practise the various breathing exercises in the different stages of your birth and cover a number of back massage and relaxing techniques. We explain the different possibilities about pain relief.

We take time to try out different birthing positions that can be useful during labour. Towards the end of the course 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.

At the end of the course you will feel much better prepared for your big day!
