About my classes:
I aim to keep the classes a very relaxed event with plenty of time for questions, chats and tea-breaks. A "full-day antenatal class" can feel very overwhelming for many. This is why I prefer to work with small groups in a comfortable setting and include breaks when needed.
I use slideshows, videos and practical demonstrations. You will get a download link to my e-book "Antenatal Course, By Midwife Liselotte" an e-mail with links to more information and to the videos we watched during the class.
Tea, Coffee, biscuits are included, lunch isn't but can be purchased in the hotel.
Depending on the group dynamics, we can run slightly ahead or behind schedule.
Occasionally, a guest speaker like a doula, yoga teacher or dietitian may provide a 20min. additional information sessions. You will be informed of this prior to attending your class.
Note: Check with your health insurance, refunds are available depending on your health insurance plan.
All participants get 10% discount on postnatal services by "Little Miracles"
