With my partner we had many specific questions and we wouldn't be so confident asking them in front of others. This was really intimate, respectful but also full of interesting information and hands-on tips for birth and first weeks with newborn. We are really happy that we chose this individual course.

Educator

Rebeka

Švecová

educator, midwife, lactation consultant

Is a midwife with a bachelor's degree, a graduate of the Aperio Academy of Childbirth Educators and a lactation consultant. She is the mother of 3 small children and therefore has her own experiences in relatively recent memory. „This period of life has always fascinated me, but it was only after having my own children that I realised how profound the changes are and at the same time how little things can make the journey more difficult or easier. I want to pass on this personal and professional experience to other women who are interested and who might need it.“
