25 May Antenatal course online in English (open enrollment)
It will take place on fridays in June 5th, 12th and 19th from 19-20:30h
I have managed to make the online classes very dynamic using videos, pdf’s and power points… the fact of being all connected enables each of us to ask and discuss about ideas you might have in mind, therefore the course is very rich. Furthermore, I will let you know all the news I’ve got about hospitals, protocols and any information that may be useful and interesting for you.
“Vicky’s prenatal class was super helpfut! Her English is great and she is extremely knowledgable. She always made sure that any question any of us had was fully answered, and I appreciated that she often spoke to the fathers to let them know that they had an important part to play in the birthing process as well. I highly recommend taking a class with Vicky to ease some of your worries, and to prepare you for such an important day”.
My partner and I are expecting our first baby, and with him being an Aussie expat living in Barcelona we wanted to look for someone that would give us antenatal training in a way that he could also be included in this experience. We found Vicky online, and from the very first e-mail exchange with her I knew that we had found the right person to do this! Vicky is very close and friendly in her language and tone, never felt like a stranger, and was so very kind in taking her time to answer all our questions during the lessons (oftentimes going over the allocated time for each session too). If you’re an expat in Barcelona, I cannot recommend her services enough – even whilst in quarantine, which meant the course was delivered online instead of in person, it was an incredibly warm experience and we feel much more in control now!

The first session we will talk about what to do during the first stage of labour, called prelabour, and begining of Dilation stage (the role of your partner is very important due to the actual situation, and my suggestion is trying to stay at home as long as possible. Therefore it is crucial that both of you know what to do and what to avoid doing to go through this stage of labour as calm as possible.
The second session we will talk about Dilation stage, positions, breathing, massage and Delivery of the baby, I will give you lot of tips and tricks!
The last session we will go through a birth plan (I will share with you a hospital one written in English and in Spanish so you can see the vocabulary, options offered in different hospitals and clinics in Barcelona, and more…).
The fee of the course is 150€ per couple. To sign up I would need a first payment of 50€ into this account number ES12 2100 3369 7821 0046 7655 (it is my husbands’ Yazan El-kareh).
