On your way to a positive birth experience

Four steps for pregnant women with partner

1. Natural birth process

You will receive information about the birth process, so you know what to expect. We will also talk about your pregnant body and what nature has designed it to do and we will discuss the role of your birth partner, so that he or she can fully support you. Starting point in your personal intention for childbirth. Because every woman, every pregnancy and every baby is unique.

2. Hypnobirthing techniques

With explanations from your hypnobirthing teacher, you will work on breathing and visualisation techniques, positive birth affirmations and scripts, touch and massage techniques and last-but-not least the use of positive anchors.

3. Navigating in birth care

You will learn the ins-and-outs of Dutch birth care and tools to navigate in it. This hypnobirthing course is also suitable for mothers in special circumstances, such as breech presentation - advanced age of the mother - birth by caesarean section - stargazers - longer pregnancies - group B strep infection.

4. The birth

We will discuss your wishes for giving birth and go through the options during labour step-by-step. You will learn to breathe gently downwards and how to feel where your cervix is allowed to open gently and smoothly. And what exactly is a lotus birth? And a golden hour?
