Welcome to our fun, informative and interactive English birth course. This course is taught by one of our fantastic midwife and doula teams. Our birth course is a full day, practical course supported by online theory modules to help you prepare together and refer back to.
Our unique combination of medical, psychological and practical knowledge provides a complete birth preparation package for you and your partner. Between us we have in-depth local experience of all of the hospitals and birthing centres across The Hague, Leiden, Zoetermeer, Delft and Rotterdam.
We know that pregnant couples giving birth away from their home country have a lot of questions about giving birth in Holland, and are often far from friends and family. Our courses are a wonderful mix of couples from all over the world and will give you a really good opportunity to get to know other parents-to-be in the area. Together you will be able to discuss and learn from each other and our experienced teachers about the joys and difficulties of becoming a new family far from home.
Consider joining a course in a different city if the dates suit you better. Make a day of it and spend a weekend or a relaxing evening out with dinner in historic Delft or amazing Rotterdam.
You will receive the complete digital materials prior to the live course so you can prepare together at home before the course day. The better prepared you are, the more you will get out of the course so we advise you to go through as much of the material as possible before our session. We look forward to meeting you and your birth partner for a full day of fun and interactive learning together, with plenty of opportunity to ask questions.
Our in-person sessions are designed to keep you safe while learning essential hands-on techniques to help you during your birth. We will run small groups of 6 couples with adequate spacing to allow you to safely learn while keeping adequate distance. We will provide a hygienic environment, adhering to the RIVM regulations. Before the practice session we will require all participants to confirm they have no symptoms.
In the case of a full lockdown this winter we will do our session online with a zoom on the same day as planned.
Come join us!
