The GentleBirth workshop will provide you and your birth partner with the tools, support and confidence to prepare for a positive birthing experience, as defined by Mom, (aka the one doing the work!). During the workshop you will delve into the neuroscience behind your mental preparation, including sport psychology techniques and the same tricks used by Navy Seals to stay calm under pressure, along with learning various comfort measures to use during labor, and support techniques to equip your birth partner to ready for the big day as well.

 

You'll also learn a bit to help you both navigate your options and the German hospital system to get the best care for you and your baby. GentleBirth is based on the latest evidence based research and the skills you learn will not only help you during the birth, but during the long journey ahead-called parenthood. Join the thousands of families that have experienced the benefits of GentleBirth.

All Weekend Workshops are held monthly and conducted in English. Both first time parents and experienced parents are welcome. To accommodate out of towners- weekend workshops are generally held on Sat from 1-6pm and Sun from 9-3pm. Classes are limited to five couples and private workshops are available upon request. 

 

NEW!!! Blended Learning GentleBirth Course for 2x (or more) Parents

This course, for 2nd or more time Mamas, combines brain science with birth science in a one-day blended learning format. For families that already have little ones at home, getting away for a weekend antenatal class can be difficult. The GentleBirth one day workshop is a one day intensive workshop combining brain science, sports psychology and hypnosis, along with refresher course in birth physiology and birth positions, to help mom prepare for a calm, confident birth experience. In addition to the in- person course, participants will have 30 day access to an additional 6 hours of online birth preparation content to do at home. Two weeks after the workshop experience, course participants will be invited to an online ZOOM meeting where the instructor can address any additional questions that might have come up since the workshop. 

The course and all digital content is offered in English. Partners are welcome to join at no additional fee.

Timeline: 9-6pm + 6 hours online content to do at home

 

The GentleBirth Workshop Experience

Online Weekend Class 

Monthly

Sat 9-1pm

Sun 1-5pm

This course is a wonderful option for families that prefer to meet online or live outside of the Rhein-Main region. The course is organized over two half days: Day one is our classroom day- where we cover everything you need to know about how your brain and your hormones work together during pregnancy and birth. Day two is all about birth! We will cover the physiology of labor along with all the "need to know" content for managing the hospital system here in Germany. Day two also wraps up with a little taster session of Hypnosis which is a great way to relax into the weekend. There is lots of time for questions and you will have two months of access to the comprehensive GentleBirth App included with your course fee.This course has been a hit during COVID and I'm excited to be able to offer this distance learning option, even as things go "back to normal".
