prenatal course madrid

You are pregnant! Congratulations! I’m sure that a thousand questions come to your head… maybe you are wondering if you should attend to a prenatal course. Is it worthy?

My short answer: absolutely yes. Let me explain you a little bit more the why of my short and direct answer.

Antenatal classes: brief description

Antenatal classes can help you and your partner to prepare for late pregnancy, birth and early parenthood (newborn baby cares).

Some antenatal classes will focus mostly on labour and birth, while others will guide you through late pregnancy, and on what life with a newborn babymay be like.

You will also find this kind of preparation advertised under other names: prenatal classes or birth preparation (mostly focused on childbirth).

6 good reasons to join a prenatal class

  1. You need to know the options you have to be able to make an informed decision on what you want and need during the birth for you and your baby.
  1. Many studies show that women who fear labour are more likely to experience more pain. In my experience as a midwife, I can say that if you know what’s going on and what to expect you will feel more secure and fearless.
  1. It gives you and your partner the time to focus on the new life that is waiting for you.
  1. It’s a great way to meet people that are in the exact same position. Who could understand and accompany you during your journey better than them?
  1. You will learn many practical things: how to deal with contractions (what is a labour contraction? how does it feel?), stages of labour, what techniques help with the contraction pain, when should I go to the hospital, how to push to avoid tearing, and many other key information.
  1. It is a good chance to make your partner more aware of what is going to happen. He/She will learn his/her role and will help him/her to feel more involved.

Are you an English-speaking living your pregnancy in Madrid?

You would love attending our English-speaking Antenatal Classes. You probably come from a different health system and it will be very beneficial for you to understand the Spanish Maternity system at the same time you get ready for the most amazing life experience.

You can also socialize and meet other parents-to-be during the prenatal course that are in your same position.

When should you book your classes for?

Try to book your place for the antenatal classes as soon as you can so you make sure you have your place. This classes thend to book up very soon as people plan them in advance.

The ideal time to attend the Antenatal Classes is from 28 till 33w. Although, many people prefer to attend earlier or later and we don’t have strict rules on this.

Do you want a natural labour? Learn more about Hypnobirthing classes

Hypnobirth is a very efficient technique used in preparation for natural labour. It involves the internalization of the knowledge and techniques that result on a self-control feeling and fearless birth. In this classes, you will learn all about pain management that can be used during labour and birth.

Hypnobirthing labours tend to be shorter and uncomplicated, with the positive consequences it brings to both, mother and baby.
