Birth preparation

Birth preparation

In this section you can find out more about:

  • birth preparation classes - as well as planning for the practical aspects of your baby's arrival, some time spent preparing mentally, emotionally and physically for labour and birth may increase your chances of having the kind of experience you hope for.

    In Belgium there are a variety of birth preparation classes on offer
    , including 'general' prenatal classes, prenatal physiotherapy and much more.

  • writing a birth plan - exploring your own preferences for labour and birth can be another way of preparing, and writing a birth plan can help those looking after you better understand your needs and desires. 


remember ...

the village does not offer medical advice - for that you need to ask your care provider.
