Contents of your birth preparation class
Design your birth preparation as you need it. Midwife Maxine has divided her live classes into different modules so that you can take part in the complete course or refresh your knowledge at any time.
Our birth preparation class with midwife Maxine takes place once a week. If you`re unable to attend one of the sessions, you are welcome to do your exercises on another day by simply using the recordings. You will also be given instructions on how to practice on your own at home.
Dates: Tuesday 12:00 pm - 01:00 pm (CET)
The first module is all about prenatal care and discomfort during pregnancy. Maxine also explains all about nutrition in the last trimester of your pregnancy.
In this module Maxine will explain everything about the anatomy of you and your child. Additionally she shows you pelvic floor exercises to help preventing birth injuries.
We will focus on the last stage of labour: midwife Maxine shows you some positions for your birth and you will practice breathing techniques. You also learn all about a natural way to handle labour pains.
You will repeat the breathing and relaxing exercises with Maxine. In addition she gives you information about caesarean section and pain relief during birth.
What happens during the first hours after giving birth? We'll teach you all about cord clamping, bonding with your baby and more! We also focus on breastfeeding, the postnatal period, and talk about the newborn.
