Birth Education Class - Geburtsvorbereitung
Thursday, January 17, 2013 from 7:30 PM to 9:30 PM (EST)
New York, NY
Congratulations! You are having a baby!
Dates: January 17, 24 & 31
We are excited to offer 3 sessions intensive birth education class led by Stephanie Heintzeler (www.thenewyorkdoula.com) who has the unique experience of a German educated midwife and US licensed doula.
Stephanie's unique approach combines her experience as a German midwife and a US doula and gives you a no- nonsense childbirth education class tailored to the busy New Yorker:
Session 1 - for moms-to-be only (2 hrs):
Pregnancy, babies position, signs of labor, exercises/tips to release pains and aches during pregnancy
Session 2 - for moms and dads (3 hrs):
Stages of labor, partner's role during labor, possibilities to ease pain, procedures in hospital, relaxation and breathing techniques, medical terminology (both English and German)
Session 3 for moms-to-be only (2 hrs) :
postpartum recovery, (breast) feeding of the baby, newborn care
Stephanie has been a midwife for over 10 years with more than 1000 birth under her belt. She is splitting her time between Munich (where she works in a delivery room) and New York (where she guides expecting parents troughout pregnancy, birth and the postpartum phase).
Please bring a comfortable pillow.
The class will be held in English, however, there is always time to ask questions in German and get an overview of the terminology every expecting parent should be fluent in.
