During the pregnancy yoga Partner Class (one-time, 2 hours), you prepare for childbirth together. We tell you about the natural process of birth, discuss how you can cope with different types of contractions, practise movements, breathing techniques and birthing positions, and discover how your partner can best support you during labour.

You can participate with your life partner, yet a family member, friend or someone else who will support you during labour, is very welcome instead. We recommend following the partner class in addition to our regular pregnancy yoga classes and advise to schedule it around your 35th week of pregnancy.

Afterwards, you will receive a digital handout afterwards with the exercises, instructional videos and useful downloads.

Please note! We offer alternating Partner Classes in Dutch and English. See our Agenda for specific dates.

In class we discuss:

  • Different ways to support RELAXATION, both physically as mentally, during birth.
  • BREATHING TECHNIQUES to help you cope with different types of contractions, to relax between contractions and specific breathing techniques to help your body birth your baby during the pushing phase.
  • MOVEMENTS to ease and support the dilation phase. Depending on the type of contractions you experience, (abdominal, back or leg) you can cope with the contractions either walking, standing, sitting, lying down or leaning over something.
  • BIRTH POSITIONS: Try different positions together with your partner to feel what suits you best.
  • THE ROLE OF THE PARTNER: Learn how he/she can support you during childbirth. Partners can mean more than they might think beforehand.
  • MASSAGE TECHNIQUES: Learn how massage can help relief pain and the intensity of contractions during childbirth.
