Childbirth course following on Centering Pregnancy
During the two Centering sessions together with your partner, you received a lot of information about the upcoming birth.
Not adressed is the practical side of childbirth such as the positive influence of relaxation, the different types of breathing, pressing techniques during childbirth, different positions, massage.
Also extensive information about for example how the Dutch Health Care system is functioning, making a Birth Plan and what happens during induced labour, a vacuum delivery or a C-section.
Ria Wiertz, Childbirth Educator of the English One day Course, developed a special variant following on Centering Pregnancy, aiming on the practical side.
The better you know what happens during childbirth the better it prevents you from being overwhelmed by the forces in your own body and provides you with tools to cope!
So, of course attention is paid to relaxation and breathing exercises, but also to the reasons why this is so important during childbirth. In addition, we briefly discuss what can and will happen during childbirth, which phases there are in childbirth and how you can adapt to this.
Knowing that your partner can provide well informed support gives you peace and confidence.
The course further prepares you for a birth to which both, in their own way, make a positive contribution. It is nice to prepare for this unique event together with your partner.
The course is given in one Saturday morning session of approximately three hours at Midwive practice Bergweg every two months and is only suitable for coupes which attended the Centering Pregnancy sessions.
Among other things, the following will be discussed:
The different stages of childbirth
How to deal with contractions
Relaxation and Breathing
The role of the partner
Pressing Postures and Techniques
Simple massage techniques
Complications during childbirth like induced labour, vacuum and C section
