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.
In this way 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
- What happens after birth
- Basics of breastfeeding
- *NEW* Baby Sleep

*NEW* Included in the course there will be a lecture by **Ola from Tiny Sleepy Heads, about baby sleep.

The techniques we will use to train your intuition may vary among:
- Fears journal
- Birth Art
- Vocalisations
- Guided visualisations

The course's investment is 235 euros (BTW inc).

The language is English or Italian depending on the participants' needs. (Ola's part only in English)
