Prenatal Classes in English

At Touching Life, we built our philosophy of promoting the emotional and physical well- being of mothers to be, their babies, and the whole family. 

We offer childbirth (Prenatal) classes based on Six basic Birth Practices. Antenatal Workshops with a variety of subjects to educate mothers to be, supporting them throughout pregnancy, and make sure they prepared for labor and early parenthood. Our prenatal classes are organized in English. They addressed to every woman who is going to become a mother but also to couples who want to know more about their new parent role. For first time parents, a prenatal class is a perfect way to learn what to expect about labor, birth, and the first few months of looking after their newborn.  

We believe that pregnant couples can benefit tremendously from the preparation of prenatal classes, including knowing what to expect during birth and taking a right evidence-based answer to guide their birth experience in a way that feels rewarded and empowered.

Our prenatal courses provide a fully comprehensive program that starts from 25 weeks of pregnancy and takes you to delivery and beyond. Anastasia Psaropoulou, a midwife who has worked for ten years as a freelancer midwife and childbirth educator, organized those prenatal classes, willing every couple to get information and knowledge about this beautiful parenthood journey. The courses cover a range of topics including preparing for birth (according to the Dutch healthcare system), breathing techniques, postnatal care, breastfeeding, and sleeping routine that suits to every family.
