The midwife will monitor you during the pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum.  She is a health professional and coach to healthy pregnant women, who you can go to with all your questions. At your appointments with the midwife, she will monitor the development of your baby and perform one or more ultrasounds to determine the duration of your pregnancy. 

We have good contacts with all the midwives in our region.

What is pregnancy yoga for?
It is nice to prepare well for the birth and everything that is to come. If you are (partially) insured for a pregnancy course, your health insurer will also (partially) reimburse the private lessons. Our teacher gives the lessons at your home. The advantage of this is that you will probably be at home for a large part of the labor and it is useful to do exercises that you may also be able to do during that part of your labor. With two private lessons for yourself and/or with your partner, you can already be well prepared.

What will you learn?
We cover, among other things, the phases of childbirth, coping with the contractions, pressing positions, what your partner can do for you, breathing and relaxation exercises and, because they are private lessons, we can tailor it to your needs. After these lessons, you will look forward to the birth with confidence.

It is also useful to prepare for a second or subsequent birth.

We advise you to take these classes before the 34th week, for example between weeks 30 and 35 of your pregnancy. Usually the woman takes one class for herself, without a partner, in which we do many exercises and in which we cover the basics of breathing techniques, among other things. And then after that, 1 week or 2 weeks later, the partner lesson. During the partner lesson, our teacher will tell you everything, how it can go during your birth, so the practical side and how your partner can support you in terms of support, so that you are well prepared together.
