Giving birth tips
In the giving birth tips provides informative courses to prepare for childbirth and the time after, for you and your partner.

Mensendieck
Carita Salome
Exercise therapy is named after its founder Bess Mensendieck (1867-1957). It is an adequate remedy for complaints resulting from an overly stressful posture or way of moving. As a Mensendieck remedial therapist Carita ensures that complaints are prevented or reduced by teaching healthy habits of posture and movement.
Website: www.caritasalome.nl

HaptoMotion
Central to this is the guidance of both parents. Through exercises, stress is reduced, which improves the development of the child and also the birth. For the mother the counseling helps to make contact with her changing body and to listen to it. In this way she will know better what she needs and how to ask for it during pregnancy and childbirth. The partner also plays an important role in this.
Website: www.haptomotion.nl

Course with elements of hypnobirthing
MOM&CO
Do you want to go into labor well prepared? Do you want no fear of birth? Do you want to be able to trust yourself and your partner and look forward to the arrival of your child together? MOM&CO offers you that opportunity!

MOM&CO positive practice gives an all-round pregnancy course with elements of Hypnobirthing. The course was developed by a midwife and is taught by midwives or doulas with a lot of experience and knowledge of everything around pregnancy and birth.
“Not woolly, but practical and at the same time relaxed and fun.”

HypnoBirthing
Kasia Pokrop, HypnoBirthing Practitioner & Yoga Instructor
The seventh series in Ashtanga yoga is the most rewarding, yet also the most challenging. It represents family.
It is the preparation that I would like to share with you as you get ready to begin your seventh series. Whether it be readying yourself for birth and letting go of fear with a HypnoBirthing course, improving how you feel during your pregnancy with prenatal yoga, or simply becoming a calmer, happier person through Ashtanga practice.
