Midwife Gerlinde Skupin

Because of the dramatic increase in insurance premiums for midwives in private practice, I have made the decision to concentrate completely on home birth care and stop offering classes myself. However, I am happy in the course of our conversation to help you find the right class for you.

In a Childbirth Preparation Class you learn about the process of birth, honing in on your own specific wishes and needs and learning about the many different possible ways your partner can support you, in order to strengthen your trust in the normalcy of labor and childbirth.

You become familiar with the different stages of birth and the corresponding breathing and relaxation techniques. You are introduced to your options of naturopathic and allopathic medication which can support your birth process, if necessary.

Along with bodywork there should always be enough time to answer all your questions, big or small, whether about the birth or the postpartum time.
