The Matecznik Foundation was founded in 2016 as a result of a few years of work by its founders with couples expecting a child and parents of small children.
The Foundation’s mission is to support families and women, especially during the perinatal period, in improving the quality of childbirth and parenthood.
The most important activities of the Foundation are as follows:
- Preparing women and their partners for delivery by organizing birth school classes, meetings, and workshops with various professionals.
- Educating future parents about the perinatal period law in Poland.
We organize birth school classes in the Polish language, but if you’re interested, we can provide individual meetings in English at your home.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us:

ALICJA NOWACZYK – President of the Board.
I am a doula. After working for five years as an audit associate, the pregnancy period and the first few months with my baby at home completely changed my job priorities and led me to get involved in working with pregnant women. Since then, I have completed many professional courses and worked with hundreds of parents, including classes, workshops, and supporting women and couples during childbirth.
As a mother of three – Kuba, Piotr born at home and Karolina.
ANNA FURMANIUK – Vice President of the Board.
I am a birth school and Shantala massage instructor. I have gained knowledge and skills over the years by participating in many trainings, courses, and conferences organized by senior professionals in the field of parenting. I strongly believe that natural birth and attachment parenting are a solid foundation for achieving harmony in family life. As a sociology student, I always intended to work for local communities. I established the first natural birth school in Poznań, which promotes a natural approach to pregnancy, birth, and parenting.
Privately, I am a mother of three daughters, with the youngest one was born at home.
