English classes and workshops


Antenatal couples classes
A bird sitting in a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because its trust does not lie in the branch, but in its own wings. Always believe in yourself… 

Dear Mothers and Fathers to be, A very exciting time is waiting you. Self-belief may not be achieved in two days, but my classes will enable this process. By focusing on the mechanism of birth, you will grasp the fundamental ability that every woman has, to give birth. With 20 years worth of experience in the field, I will be informing you with the best information I have about the pregnancy, birth and the time after the birth.  Also included will be information on the various stages of birth, breathing, and positions. Yoga classes would also be recommended as a good addition in preparation for our classes. Coffee, tea and snacks will also be provided. It’ll be anything but boring! Regards, Betül

Idealy you should finish your childbirth class no later than the end of your 36th week of pregnancy and start after your 25th week.

Paperwork 101
This two-hour workshop is aimed at parents-to-be, who perhaps don’t speak great German or just don’t really understand the piles of paperwork that the German system seems to throw at them once they find out they’re pregnant! We will go through the formalities that need to be taken care of during pregnancy and after the birth of your baby, what you’re entitled to and how to claim your entitlements (i.e. Kindergeld and Elterngeld). There will also be an opportunity to ask questions
