Childbirth preparation

5.png

How is this course?

This childbirth preparation course is highly flexible and adjusts to your needs.

The entire course comprises four sessions, each lasting around three hours. While the sessions are standalone, they complement each other.

It is advisable to attend all sessions for thorough preparation. However, you can also opt for individual sessions based on your preferences, schedule, and convenience.

Every session is carefully crafted to maximize its benefits. It aims to empower you to handle any situation effectively, providing you with information grounded in current scientific evidence.

Since every couple has unique requirements, I provide personalized sessions individually. I visit each couple at their home, where we work in a relaxed setting, offering tailored guidance and support.
