Childbirth Preparation Weekend Course
New in 2022 is the Childbirth Preparation Weekend course for couples in Rotterdam.
The content of the course is the same as the One Day course but this course is divided over two days, part one on Saturday and part two on Sunday.
It gives participants more time to process the information received. During this course we look at most aspects of pregnancy, labor, birth, the early days of parenthood and making a Birthplan. There is also attention for the role of the expecting partner. Their support can really make a difference during the birth of the baby.
We will learn about the use of and how to practice breathing and relaxation, use of a birthball, massage and of course this will be practiced. Of course it will be necessary to practice more at your home!
We continue after a few weeks with an additional ZOOM appointment so you can ask all the questions that might popped up in the meantime and repeat all the breathing techniques. A lot of information will be given, so you will receive additional hand-outs. It is a practical preparation for birth: to get all tools to cope with labor. All stages of labor with positions, pushing techniques, postnatal period will be explained.
Courses are, of course, presented in English at Midwive practice Bergweg.
