classes

I teach an information session regarding pregnancy called “Birthing in Munich,” as well as 12-hour childbirth classes at the Beratungsstelle für natürliche Geburt in Munich.

Birthing in Munich is an hour and a half sessions for mothers and their partners who have just recently learned they are expecting a baby. Specific to the city of Munich, in this session I teach how to find resources and build support networks locally. This is particularly helpful for parents not yet familiar with the German birthing culture. I explain how the system of perinatal care works in regards to finding the right clinic, midwives and doulas.

Sessions take place once a month on a Saturday and cost 15€ per mother/couple. To register, please contact the Beratungsstelle für natürliche Geburt at the phone number and/or email provided here: https://haeberlstrasse-17.de/en/kurse/birthing-munich

Childbirth Preparation classes that I teach take place on two days of one weekend. In this class, I teach varied approaches to giving birth, aspects of physiological birth, early signs of labor, when to seek your chosen birth location, skills for managing contractions, basics of available medical support and how to identify evidence-based practices. My goal with this class is to reassure the mothers’ beliefs in their innate ability to give birth so that they can have as positive an experience as possible.

These classes take place approximately every two months and costs 264€ per mother/couple. To register, please contact the Beratungsstelle für natürliche Geburt at the phone number and/or email provided here: https://haeberlstrasse-17.de/en/kurse/childbirth-preparation-weekend-couples

I am also available to teach private childbirth classes upon request and can tailor-fit the class to your birthing interests. For private class inquiries, please use the contact form on this website.
