Can I attend the workshop without a partner?
Yes, definitely! During the workshop, we will also explore the role of a partner during labour and birth, but you can also attend the workshop on your own. However, if you know there will be someone with you during labour and birth, I recommend you do this workshop together.
Will I have a more comfortable birth after taking this course?
Life is unpredictable, so no one can tell how your particular experience will be. This workshop is providing you with some of the knowledge you need in order to take your own decisions in your particular situation. Most probably you will benefit from this course as you learn how to trust into your body and to give in to unique experience of birthing a baby.
Will the workshop be held in English?
Yes. I'm planning on also offering a German version in the future. I'll announce it on the website as soon as it's available.
How many participants are in the workshop?
There will be a maximum of 12 participants, including partners.
Do I have to pay extra for my partner to join?
No. When you book a spot, you book per couple, so you don’t have to pay anything extra for your partner to join.
When should I do the workshop?
Ideally from 30 weeks onwards, but you will also benefit if you do it earlier in your pregnancy.
What do I need for the online workshop?
You would need a yoga mat (and one for your partner), plenty of cushions and an exercise ball (65 cm would be ideal).
I already participated in a birth preparation course. Does it make sense to also attend this workshop?
Yes. The Active Birth Workshop can complement a regular birth preparation course. This workshop will teach you valuable tools that a regular birth preparation course doesn’t offer. The Active Birth Workshop is filling a gap that will give you the confidence you need to increase your chances of having a natural birth. There might also be some information that you’ve heard already, but most likely in much more detail and with a different focus.
What if the workshop can’t take place because of new regulations related to SARS-CoV-2?
If the workshop can’t take place in the studio, it will most probably still be possible for us to meet online. The price for the online workshop remains the same.
