Birthwise Childbirth© Preparation Classes

Childbirth preparation classes will continue in November 2017 in Bezuidenhout, The Hague. These classes will meet once a week for six weeks on a Wednesday evening. The purpose of these classes is to help expectant couples familiarize themselves with birthing in the Netherlands. Having a baby at home is still an option in the Netherlands, but with the rise of births in hospitals, couples need to be informed what to expect and what is available when they decide to have their baby in a hospital.  This comprehensive course makes learning about pregnancy, labor, birth and the postpartum interesting, interactive and informative. The course will give you the knowledge you need to approach labor with more confidence.  It is also a great way to meet people and to learn about resources available in the area.  

Topics include:

Pregnant female anatomy 

Stages of labor

Hormones

Pain

Non-medical pain management and exercises

Hospital procedures and choices in pain medication

Cesarean section

Partner support and support from caregivers

Writing a birth plan

Postpartum 

Breastfeeding

Cost: €180 per mother-to-be/couple. Classes up to 5 couples.

Date:  Wednesday, November 1-December 6, 2017, 19:00-21:00.

Location: Buurthuis PuntZuid, Van Heutszstraat 12,  2593 PJ The Hague
