During two sessions, we’ll explore everything involved in this specific phase of pregnancy: dealing with physical inconveniences, bodily preparations to give birth, use of the rebozzo cloth during pregnancy and labor, and more
Conflict of needs
Another individual is joining your life soon and will have his/her own needs. Together we will have a look at and practice how to deal with the inevitable conflicts that arise from this new situation.
We´ll be introducing Emotionally Focused Therapy as a way to view and improve the quality of your romantic relationship. It will offer you the necessary tools in times of conflict and stress.
The 5 Stages of birth:
Description of the different stages of labor: what happens physically and emotionally. Developing an understanding often helps in dealing with emotions, pain and making the right decisions.
The language of Crying
For your baby, crying will be one of the most important ways of communicating. We´ll explore the meanings of crying. Why does a baby cry, what does it mean and how you can respond.
In our view, anything that you do to suppress your (negative) emotions can develop into a control pattern. What is the influence of those patterns on your own and family life?
Planning your birth
Here we will have a look at which conscious choices you can make to take your birth into your own hands. Where would you like to give birth? How and with whom? What do you like or not like? And how do you make that clear to the person who will be with you? As a follow-up, you can plan a private session with Hagar to deliberate on your own birth plan.
How do you create your our own safe zone? Breastfeeding with and without support, the effects of medical birth on breastfeeding, and how you can work around it when it does happen.
The Amazing Placenta
During this session you will learn about the function of the placenta, and what you can do to get the most benefit from this miraculous organ during and after birth.
During this session, while the men are hiking, the ladies amongst us will have a session of pampering, relaxation and empowerment.
During a hike the men will take a closer look at fatherhood and the very special role a father has in the life of his child(ren).
