Clem & Nico -.

I heard a lot of good feedbacks from friends about this course and it indeed exceeded our expectations.  For the practice, we had to move from face to face classes to online session due to Corona Virus situation.  We feel now more prepared and we know what to “expect” from the labor/ delivery/postpartum period. I feel more comfortable doing this birth in the Netherlands and we now have all the means to handle it. The breathing technique, positions/massages exercise, all the different steps and how the body is reacting. So a big thank you to Chitra for her help and kindness during these sessions.

Ezgi & Mark -.

Chitra knows her subject very detailed, passionate to tell about and explains the background of the things very well. This helps us to remember why and how the things are the way they are. Also her way of sending the summarised notes and other important tips was very useful. We enjoyed the course very much! Thanks.

Emily -.

I would highly recommend enrolling in Chitra’s Hypnobirthing class. The content of the course itself was very detailed and offered all the info necessary to understand the birthing process, as well as the various relaxation and practical techniques (positioning, breathing, etc). Participating in this class with my partner was key – we felt so prepared and confident on the day my son was born thanks to what we learned. Chitra is an incredibly warm teacher who spent plenty of time customising the teachings on exactly what each of us in the class wanted to know. She taught us to be empowered and confident in our birth preferences. Thank you, Chitra! My husband and I appreciated the opportunity to meet other expecting (& English speaking) parents in this process.

[Successful VBAC]
My partner and I did the Hypnobirthing class with Chitra. The course was very informative about my options & rights, understanding the Dutch medical system (given that we’re expats in NL) and breathing & relaxation techniques.
It helped my partner and me be prepared and confident for a VBAC for our second baby. Chitra makes the classes so welcoming with her warm, lovely personality. She also continues to stay in touch post the classes, with a lot of support in decision making. We are very glad that we decided to do the classes with Chitra and highly recommend it to all mums-to-be!
