Childbirth education courses in Amsterdam

Childbirth is a process that involves most noteworthy your baby, but even more your body. Therefore, Childbirth Education gives you the possibility of knowing in advance what your body is capable of  and will definitively help you interiorise what is better for you to do during the birth of your child, hence having a smoother birth.

Because I am both a Neuroscientist and a Doula, I always say that with my Childbirth Education Courses my goal is, above all, guiding you into a journey from science to soul.

By working with me, you will have the chance to specifically discuss the most updated evidence based information around childbirth with a real scientist, and, equally important, you will learn how to listen and trust to your inner voice and intuitions, and, at last, I will guide you to combine these two aspects reaching your truly own decision, consequently creating a state of empowerment for you, your family and your childbirth.

Here below are listed  in detail all the topics I will discuss during my childbirth education courses:

  • Understanding the Dutch care system around pregnancy
  • Different phases of labour
  • What is the process fear>tension>pain 
  • How to approach each contraction
  • Breathing and relaxation techniques
  • Different positions in labour and birth
  • Medical interventions: pain relief, induction, C-section
  • What happens after birth
  • Basics of breastfeeding

Furthermore, as a result of my belief in the power of intuition, here below are listed the key tools I will definitely use to guide you trusting your truly innermost voice:

  • Fear journaling/funnelling
  • Birth art
  • Guided visualisations (from Hypnobirthing and Mindfulness)

Dear all,

I am about to start my maternity leave (July 2020).

I will be back to work in 2021. Meanwhile, please feel free to contact me for information.

I wish you a wonderful time.
