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.
Pregnancy is a very beautiful, but sometimes demanding, period as the couple is called to their new role of being parents. Through prenatal lessons we aim to make every woman feel that is capable of trusting her body and her baby, while at the same time the couple comes even closer.
The courses are addressed to prospective mothers, and their partners, being at the 25th week of pregnancy and beyond:
Each woman has her own needs and needs besides her people she trusts and can support her. Childbirth is a beautiful journey and TouchingLife’s midwife is next to the couple during childbirth with respect, taking care of the woman and helping her to harness the power of her nature during bringing her child into the world.
Pregnancy involves both physical and emotional changes that the couple is called upon to manage. TouchingLife supports parents with the following activities:
