Preparing for the delivery and after

If you want to be better prepared for the delivery and the postnatal period, you could follow these workshops in addition to our free information evenings. They are given at our locations by our partners in collaboration with us. We will also mention a number of workshops here that may be of interest to you but that we are not involved in. These workshops are given at various locations throughout Amsterdam. These workshops are not free of charge.

Breastfeeding

Breastfeeding is the most natural way to feed your baby. Unfortunately, it doesn’t always happen automatically. This workshop will teach you what to do in order to start feeding your child as effectively and as pleasantly as possible. You will also learn to recognise the signs if there isn’t enough milk and what is considered normal baby behaviour. It would be useful to follow this workshop together with your partner so that he/she knows how to help in this respect. This workshop is given by lactation expert Myrte van Lonkhuijsen at our midwifery clinic.
