Doulentina - Birth Preparation Course

Amsterdam, Netherlands

Description

Doulentina's face is Valentina Cenedese, neuroscientist turned doula in 2015.
I offer Childbirth Education Classes, Personalised Birth Preparation sessions and a Neuroscience-based parenting set of workshops called BabyBrains® on cognitive development of children aged 0-4.
Birth Doula and Post Partum Doula services are temporarily on hold as I recently gave birth to a child.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
I want to think of my services as a bridge between Science and Parents’ Soul. I use Science to inform, empower and nurture families in their journey into parenthood, providing interactive, creative and experimentally-inspired education around childbirth and child cognitive development.

I root my classes on the latest insight from Physiology, Psychology and Neuroscience, making them available to parents, who will be guided to connect with their own intuition and to use it for making aware decisions. This enables a more conscious, effective and pleasurable experience of both childbirth and parenting, making the adventure of becoming a family one rich in joy and fulfilment.

A well informed and adequately supported parent will experience less frustration, exhaustion and hopelessness as their energy will be channelled towards the most effective tool: nurturing the relationship with their own body-mind and with their child.
It is through this relationship that support for an optimal birth and child development can be offered.

At the end of my courses, parents feel empowered to take on the most wonderful challenge of their lives: giving birth to and parenting their unique child.

In 4 prenatal lessons + 1 postpartum lesson, I will guide you through the general basic physiological knowledge of a typical childbirth education course, but I will also help you to create a state of empowerment and relaxation.

At the end of the course, you will trust your body and make decisions based on your intuition, knowing that we had very well rooted that intuition on evidence based information around pregnancy and childbirth.

The topics we will cover are:
- Understanding the Dutch care system around pregnancy
- Different phases of labour
- What is the pattern fear>tension>pain and how to break it
- How to approach each contraction
- Breathing and relaxation techniques
- Different position in labour and birth
- Basics of massage and acupressure points
- Medical interventions
- Postpartum
- Basics of breastfeeding

The techniques we will use to train your intuition may vary among:
- Fear journaling/funnelling
- Birth art
- Guided visualisations (from Hypnobirthing and Mindfulness)

After every lesson, you will receive some material from me for working from home, to move from your logic mind into your creative, intuitive mind. There, you can begin to access deeper beliefs, insights, imagery, and solutions than you could in the ordinary brainwave state of alert consciousness. In this way you can get a taste of the "laborland" mindset.

The ONLINE course's investment is 200 euros (VAT incl).

The language is English or Italian depending on the participants' needs.

Personalised sessions to prepare you for birth and postpartum.

We will look together at what your needs are and create a plan.

You may want to have just evidence based information related to your specific situation, or you want to be guided to a more introspective journey.

You may need help to figure the best approach to postpartum, like what to buy, how to ask for more help, how to plan meals, how to plan friends's help for your older child around birth.

I am here for you.
