Birth matters! While the process of birth is not something we can control, having awareness of this process and how you can influence it to unfold optimally is key to approach birth with confidence. In these workshops, you will learn a variety of techniques to work with this process and manage pain and fear during birth. We will address internal resources (e.g. mindfulness) and external resources (e.g. partner, communication with caregivers, etc.)

Each workshop will offer a combination of childbirth education, information & plenty of hands-on & mindfulness practices. As each workshop builds onto the previous one, it is highly recommended to attend the whole series

#1: The physiology of labour and the mind/body connection

#2: Birthing positions & partner support

#3: Birthing preferences & pain practices

These workshops are meant for expecting couples wanting to prepare physically, emotionally and mentally for the big event that giving birth is.

Prior experience with meditation, yoga or mindfulness is preferred but not mandatory. Please wear comfortable clothes.

Single session: 60€ per couple (30€ pp)

Whole series: 165€ per couple (82.5€ pp)

NB: your health insurance may cover the costs for this series either partially or fully
