Birth Preparation Class

Birth Preparation Class in Berlin: Mitte, Kreuzberg, Friedrichshain, Neukölln | Midwife Juliane Schneider

I offer birth preparation classes frequently. My main focus is on giving you the information to empower you having a self-determined positive birthing experience, no matter what birth will exactly turn out to be like for you.

Class content

Because of this the class will cover many different aspects, to get an overview we can divide them in three areas:

  1. we will learn together about pregnancy and the physical and hormonal changes the body goes through. We will also discuss which preparations to take for birth, do exercises that help the baby find a good position in the pelvis and talk about which items are essntial to have before the baby arrives.
  2. The second part will be mainly about birth: I will explain to you all the processes the body goes through and everything important about it. The focus will be on vaginal birth, but we do also have space and time to talk about other ways of giving birth such as C-Sections. Of course we will also cover questions as when to go to the hospital or call your midwife, or which possibilites of pain management exist.
  3. Also very important to me is to prepare you intensively about your early post-partum period. I will give you theoretical and practical advise about breastfeeding, communication with the baby and how to take care of it.

This is only a possible overview about the topics of the cours, the program will always be adapted to the individual needs of the group.

Courses are covered by health insurance, for partners I charge 100€. Price can be reduced upon request.
