FAQ

In principle, it is always good if you can start dealing intensively with yourself and your motherhood as early as possible.


A lot will be initiated in the course and you will probably develop a fundamentally changed attitude towards experiencing pregnancy and childbirth.


Also, many things will come to the surface and occupy you emotionally.

The more time you have to allow your feelings and to recognize and work on fears, worries and blockages, the more stable you feel at the birth.

You will find out all the key data for the fear-free birthing intensive course in the non-binding preliminary talk.


Since we will be working with very sensitive topics over a long period of time, I would first like to find out more about your situation and whether the course is suitable for you and whether the relationship of trust is right. Because of course by participating in the course you allow me to put my finger on the wound, which requires your absolute willingness to allow it.


You will not be pushed into anything during the conversation and can then think about it in peace and decide together with your partner.

Of course, I support schoolgirls, students and women in financial difficulties and more and more health insurance companies take over a proportion of the course fee. Please contact the clerk you trust for this.

After participating in the fear-free birthing intensive course, I will issue you with a certificate that you can submit together with your invoice to your health insurance company.


Due to the pandemic, more and more insurance companies are willing to (proportionately) cover the costs of online courses. Unfortunately, I cannot promise you that your insurance company will agree to a subsidy.


The best thing to do is to simply call the customer support and ask.

Of course! During the course weeks, I can be reached privately via WhatsApp at any time during the week and, in emergencies, also at the weekend.

So far, the one-on-one support via voice messages has worked very well, since you can let me know about your thoughts at any time and I (depending on the time zone I am in) can answer them during my working hours.

You have access to all content of the Fear Free Birth Intensive Course via your personal member area for 1 year from the time the course starts.

If you become pregnant again, I will of course reactivate your account. Just send me a message via WhatsApp.

No, you can participate from anywhere in the world using your laptop, PC or smartphone.


However, I would recommend not using your cell phone for the weekly live calls, otherwise you will probably not be able to see all of your classmates on one page in the zoom call.

In your personal member area you will find the respective link to the zoom call. All you have to do then is click on it at the specified time.

All live course meetings are recorded and can be accessed in your member area the following day, so that you can watch them later or again at any time.

Of course, and you won\'t be the only one. Many mothers have their children with them. Since I can mute all participants when I\'m explaining something, that\'s no problem at all. If you want to ask or say something, you can turn on your audio in the Zoom call.

Hypnobirthing was developed by Marie Mongan based on the insight of Grantly Dick Read, a gynecologist and obstetrician who had a formative experience with a woman giving birth and based on it his theory of the vicious anxiety-spasm-pain cycle.


Hypnobirthing is about systematically reducing fears with hypnosis techniques. In addition, the focus is on breathing, relaxation and concentration exercises.


The basic techniques of hypnobirthing are:

  • Breathing (slow breathing, which the author says should be practiced every day)-
  • Visualization
  • Relaxation
  • Deepening (through the daily training of the mind)


The book Hypnobirthing is wonderful and has great information!


In the Fear-free birth intensive course you will learn everything you need to know to relax deeply during the birth and to be able to connect with yourself and your child even in critical situations.


However, hypnobirthing is NOT an explicit part, as I find birth to be an intuitive process that does not need to be practiced every day - even if I can support all the other information of the method.

Please have your gynecologist or family doctor take your blood and determine the serum ferritin value. It is not usually part of regular blood draws and you must specifically point this out.


If you already have a child, I recommend that you request the birth record before the course starts so that we can work with it in the coming weeks. All information about the required documents can be found on this page at the bottom of the FAQ.
