Matecznik Foundation was founded in 2016 as the result of a few years work of its founders with couples expecting a child and parents of small children.

The Foundation’s mission is to support families and women, especially in the perinatal period, in improving the quality of childbirth and parenthood.

The most important activities of Foundation are as follows:

  • preparing women and their partners for the 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 Polish language but if you’re interested we can provide individual meetings in English at your home

ALICJA NOWACZYK – President of the Board.

I am a doula. Having worked for five years as an audit associate, the pregnancy period and the very first months with my baby at home totally changed my job priorities and let me decide to get engaged in work with pregnant women. Since then I have completed many professional courses and worked with hundreds of parents, including classes, workshops and accompanying women and couples during childbirths.

As a mother of three – Kuba, Piotr born at home and Karolina. I am fascinated by attachment parenting



ANNA FURMANIUK – Vice President of the Board.

I am birth school and shantala massage instructor. I have gained knowledge and skills for years participating in many trainings, courses and conferences organized by the senior professionals of the parenting related topis. I strongly believe that natural birth and attachment parenting are a solid foundation for achieving harmony in family life. As a sociology student I already intended to work for the local communities. In 2010 with a group of babywearing pioneers from Poznań I founded „Poznań in Wrap” Association. Not much later I set up the first natural birth school in Poznań, which promotes natural approach to pregnancy, birth and parenting.

Privately, I am a mother of three daughters, witch the youngest one was born at home.
