Preparing for Childbirth in four hours: face-2-face information session in English for expectant couples (around 30-34 weeks pregnant) including breathing and massage exercises.

The course will be presented by Annet Coumou, experienced Dutch midwife and coach. For more information: see website page: About Annet

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.

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).
