What to expect

This is not your average pregnancy class. At Soulful Pregnancy, we're going to approach it completely differently… Soulful pregnancy retreats is an exclusive experience… in which you participate at least eight times so that you have a nice party to look forward to every week during your pregnancy, during that period.

 

The pilot edition was completed in December. What a joy it was! Fully motivated after all the positive feedback from the participants, we will start again at the beginning of February. There is a weekly meeting in both Dutch and English. 

The weekly retreats last 2 hours. Part of which is yoga class/movement. In the other part, a theme related to pregnancy, childbirth or maternity is discussed. In an attractive setting while enjoying snacks and drinks. 


There will be several guest speakers who will demonstrate, tell and inspire from their own field. 

 

Come relax and enjoy a rich program:

  • Preparation for pregnancy, delivery and maternity period with different experts: 

    • Postpartum expert Nadia Ajoep

    • Pelvic physiotherapist, Inger van den Berg

    • Breathing coach and birth consultant, Gytha Brooks

  • Pregnancy Yoga by Gytha Brooks (at the start of each retreat)

  • Healing concert by Loes Swinkels

  • Soundhealing by Pleuni van Hulten

  • Ayurvedic snacks and cozy vibe


Together we create a safe and loving space where you can relax to the fullest during your pregnancy, where you are empowered, after which you leave the door glowing. 

Exercise 

The yoga exercises prevent and relieve pelvic floor complaints, the right muscles are strengthened or loosened. Soon, assumptions such as "yoga is too spiritual" and "I'm not flexible enough for that" are thrown overboard and you enjoy the routines because you achieve noticeable results. Experience is absolutely not necessary. It is a gentle yet effective form of yoga, safe for pregnant women. When your interest in yoga is awakened, you will be able to get lasting strength and relaxation from it.

 

 

Knowledge

No week is the same. Each time another piece of theory is discussed that we will immediately put into practice with exercises. Such as: How do you deal with pain during childbirth? What are contractions? How can you positively influence dilation?  Which poses are conducive to opening the pelvis? Don't expect a boring slideshow. Be surprised, we have made it interactive for you!

Relaxation

you can learn to relax! 'Relaxation' is central topic every week. You learn to better recognize where your limits lie and you learn in which different ways you can relax. After 8 meetings you have mastered the breathing exercises, inspired by hypnobirthing. All of this has positive consequences on the course of your pregnancy, the delivery and your recovery.

When to start your series of 8  retreats 

A favorable time to start is from week 12 to week 32 of pregnancy. You can always participate, even if you have already had a previous pregnancy. It is a new experience and suitable as preparation every time. Participation is appropriate whether you are going to give birth in hospital or at home. 


The retreats will now take place on Sunday mornings. Due to the lockdown, we are now on a short break. We expect to have the green light again from February. The first retreat is scheduled for February 6. Location: PUUR midwifery center Veldhoven. Dorpstraat 120 Veldhoven.

Please note: Due to the corona measures, the groups are kept smaller. The retreats are organized in the annex of the popular PUUR midwifery practice in Veldhoven (10 minutes travel time from the center of Eindhoven). The groups are therefore expected to be fully booked quickly.
