Hi, I'm Truus Gale, a Dutch midwife since 1988. I've been offering prenatal courses in English since 2005.
My childbirth preparation courses enable international couples to feel comfortable about having their baby in the Netherlands. I cover: how the Dutch health system treats childbirth, different ways to cope with labour, pain relief possibilities and how your partner can support you. In five group sessions and a postnatal reunion, I help you to make informed choices as you mingle with other expectant couples.
I also run three-hour and seven-hour childbirth preparation classes, or a private consultation for you and your partner in the comfort of your own home.
Also happy to help you in Preparing for Parenthood: join my one-off, two-hour course while you are still pregnant.
