During childbirth classes we emphasize that pregnancy, birth, nursing, and parenthood are natural processes that can be intelligently supported by technology and medicine. We provide the information you need. The classes are conducted not only by midwives but also often by recent mothers, who are glad to share their experiences.
Most of the classes involve group activities, which make it possible for you to see that you yourself have the knowledge and intuition to deal with various difficulties that may arise.
Both the factual information and the gymnastic and breathing exercises will help you gain confidence in your own body and will strengthen your faith in your latent maternal abilities. It will be easier for you to define your expectations and needs, and to decide where you want to give birth, in what company, and in what manner.
Our classes are open to everyone who is expecting to give birth—either naturally at home or in the Birthing Centre, or with the use of anesthetics and the help of a medical team in the Maternity Ward.
It is my hope that these classes will help you to enter parenthood with less fear and greater self-confidence.
