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.

Our Four-weekly Childbirth Preparation Course will only be given ONLINE. The ‘extra 4th’ lesson enables you to spend more time interacting with other expectant couples in breakout rooms, and more information about medical interventions (like induction or waterbirth), and about what happens after the birth.

In this Four-weekly course you are actually going to practise breathing and massage exercises, and birthing positions yourself. With the help of videos we demonstrate the massage and breathing exercises.
This course also seems to be useful if you miss a lesson in the Five- or Three-weekly course to catch up.
Another difference is: you are free to organise your own baby reunion. (We encourage you to make a WhatsApp group to stay in contact with other couples).

This popular extensive Childbirth Preparation Course is intended for couples more than 26 weeks pregnant (preferable around 30-32 weeks). Five evenings (19.00-21.00) on a Monday or Tuesday and one postnatal reunion in the weekend.

Advantage of the Five weekly course:
There is more time to let all the information sink in and to practise at home (homework every week), more time to ask questions and hold discussions, and last but not least: there is a baby reunion attached five weeks after all the babies are born. There will be a Whatsapp/ Signal group and you can enlarge your network with other young international parents.

This weekend 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 also explain the different possibilities about pain relief.

We also 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.
