VAAre you pregnant and staying in the Netherlands temporarily? Or did you move to the Netherlands recently and are you still learning the language? Then antenatal classes in English might be a good idea for you.

- Information on the stages of labor and birth
- Conscious relaxation
- How to cope with pain
- Breathing exercises and birthing positions
- Childbirth complications: Caesarian section, vacuum extraction, etc.
- Information on the postpartum period and the newborn baby

Relax and cope
The information given will help you minimize your fears, help you make informed decisions and teach you techniques to help you relax and cope. We offer a positive approach to labor and childbirth and a good and practical preparation.
Preparing for a birth and developing confidence takes time. Typically, you start birthing classes when you are about 6 months pregnant.
Antenatal “crash” course or start early?
However, it’s also possible to start later on in pregnancy and even do an antenatal “crash” course. And of course, you may start early if you like!
Costs and location
Costs: € 84,– per session of one hour. It’s possible to take 2-hour sessions. A basic course preparing for birth would normally take 3-4 hours. Of course you may want to extend your course with post-birth topics.
Location: Groeisprong, Eikeboom 35,
4101 VA Culemborg.
