English spoken courses

If the regular Dutch Samen Bevallen course is not an option for you because you don’t speak or understand Dutch fluently (or you prefer to follow an English class), it is possible to follow a complete English course of 3 to 4 meetings. With sufficient entries this course is given as a group course, otherwise as a private course.

The maternity course Samen Bevallen (Birthing Together) helps you as parents to be prepared for the birth of your baby in an informative and practical way. During the course you will learn and practice different birthing techniques as well as all the do’s and don’ts about pregnancy and labor. The coaching role of the partner throughout the birth is one of the main focuses.

The course is given by pregnancy teachers that have been fully educated within the Samen Bevallen association. Our teachers follow annual training to stay up to date with the latest insights in the field. Many midwives and obstetricians throughout the country support and recommend the Samen Bevallen course. The main goal of the Samen Bevallen association is to give you and your baby the best start possible.

Some pregnancy teachers teach this course from home, others do this from another location. The course is given to a fixed group or as a private course.

The English spoken course costs between € 140,- and € 170,- for a group course (different per location) and between € 40,- and € 50,- per hour for a private course (different per location and travel costs may be added). More information about the course and the course dates can be found under the location of your choice.

Lizzy: "Wij hebben de cursus heel fijn gevonden. Ik had me nog niet echt ingelezen, en zelfs met de versnelde (4 bijeenkomsten) cursus heb ik het idee dat ik nu goed ben voorbereid op de bevalling. Wat ik vooral fijn vond is dat het in praktische stappen ging, maar dat er ook veel ruimte was voor het oefenen en vragen. Je bereid je echt samen voor en weet waar en hoe je elkaar kan steunen."

Johannes vult nog aan: "Een stuk minder zweverig dan gedacht 😅"
