Childbirth following Centering Pregnancy

During the two Centering sessions together with your partner, you received a lot of information about the upcoming birth. Not addressed is the practical side of childbirth such as the positive influence of relaxation, the different types of breathing, pressing techniques during childbirth, different positions, massage. Also extensive information about for example how the Dutch Health Care system is functioning, making a Birth Plan and what happens during induced labor, a vacuum delivery or a C-section.

Ria Wiertz, Childbirth Educator of the English One day Course, developed a special variant following on Centering Pregnancy, aiming on the practical side. The better you know what happens during childbirth the better it prevents you from being overwhelmed by the forces in your own body and provides you with tools to cope! So, of course attention is paid to relaxation and breathing exercises, but also to the reasons why this is so important during childbirth. In addition, we briefly discuss what can and will happen during childbirth, which phases there are in childbirth and how you can adapt to this.
