Why natural childbirth is still the best
Natural Childbirth means when biochemical processes of labor are not interrupted by strong analgesics or narcotics. In this case maternal bonding between mother and child will be strong from the beginning on. So mother, father, and child can have direct access to their love. A soothing and professional childbirth preparation supports women in their very own power to give birth to their child in a natural way.
A physical, mental, and well-informed preparation on the forthcoming labor is the main outcome of the antenatal courses. This outcome will be achieved with the following methods:
- relax and build up new power
- stimulate your circulation – relieve your back
- experience your breathing (contraction breathing)
- deal positively with stress situations
- get to know different birth positions
- build up contact with your child
Easy movements, like in everyday life, are basis for our body exercises. Breathing is the nutritious connection between the child and the own perception.
- massages for pain relief in pregnancy and labor
- changes in partnership
