Ante-natal courses

Thuiszorg offers a wide range of courses for the pregnant and new mother, these include:

Exercise and relaxation courses for expectant mothers: Zwangerschapsgymnastiek. These are highly recommended, especially if you are expecting your first baby and are planning a natural labour and delivery. Comprehension of Dutch is not essential as the exercises are demonstrated.

Parentcraft classes (Oudercursus). All you need to know about pregnancy and caring for baby. If you don't know Dutch, these classes may be a problem.

After the baby is born a variety of courses are available, including Baby massage and advice on how to deal with a crying baby - Huilbaby.

If you want some other form of birth preparation, eg. Yoga, you must make your own arrangements but your midwife or OB may be able to advise.

Access offers a wide range of classes in English, from pre-natal exercise to breast feeding services.

doulasophie.nl offers English speaking birth preparation courses and Doula services in Rotterdam.
