VDA Maternity Care does not organise any classes but we can warmly recommend the classes below:
The ZWANGER en MAMA [Pregnant and Mummy] prenatal classes are designed for all pregnant women and prepares them, in small groups, thoroughly for the birth, the first period with their new baby and recovery after the birth. The classes are designed so that you can choose from four “separate” parts or follow the whole course. The teachers are therapists with plenty of experience in teaching such classes and supervising women. The costs might be covered by your health insurance, depending on which company you are with.
