Classes

Exciting news!!! After teaching Childbirth Classes in Munich at the Beratungsstelle für natürliche Geburt the past three years, I have decided to offer the classes myself to improve the content and quality of my classes to better fit the needs of families I support. Expecting families can now contact me directly to reserve their spots.

Class Descriptions:

Childbirth Class for Couples take place both online and in-person. 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 support the mother and her partner to believe in their innate ability to give birth so that they can have as positive an experience as possible.
Total number of class hours: 12
Class fee (covers both you and your partner): 250€

Birthing in Munich is a recorded online class 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.

I am currently recording the content for this class! Please send me a message through my contact page to stay updated and learn as soon as it is available.

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.
