Birth school

We organize birth school classes in Polish language but if you’re interested we can provide individual meetings in English at your home or our place at Niepodległości Street in Poznań.


We offer the following topics:

Yes, YOU can do it!

Are you pregnant and afraid of childbirth? Would you like to give birth naturally (and maybe even at home)? Are you wondering how to recognize the first symptoms that indicate THIS IS HAPPENING FOR REAL? Would you like to have a positive attitude to this event, but there are not enough people around who have positive labor stories behind?

If so, this meeting is for you (and for your husband / partner too!).

During this workshop:

  • you will familiarize yourself with the subject of childbirth,
  • you will believe in your strength, intuition and the happy finale,
  • you will learn what are the stages of delivery and how to recognize them,
  • you will learn the secrets of natural birth, as well as home,
  • you will learn how to write birth plan,
  • you will be told about hospital procedures and common interventions,
  • you will talk to an experienced doula, who will infect you with his enthusiasm 🙂
