Do you feel that childbirth is more than just a hospital treatment? That there is something mysterious, powerful and sacred in it? We KNOW there is!
Family Midwifery Care Centre KOALA has been active for over 11 years.
We were among pioneers who spread the idea of active birth in Cracow. Supported by The Foundation for Childbirth with Dignity we promote a new approach to childbirth, maternity and fatherhood. From the beginning it was essential to us to share our experience and knowledge with people expecting children, that allowed them to turn their fear into activeness, lack of sense of control into body confidence, and fright into specific skills and reliable information. During the last eleven years of KOALAs work we have not only expanded our team, but we also advanced our teaching and coaching techniques.
School’s current programme is an effect of constant evaluation of our activities. It results from a shared experience of nearly 7000 KOALAs former students. Through the years, together with them we have set high standards of leading the birth-preparation classes, workshops and a range of additional courses, that prepare for childbirth and parenthood in comprehensive way.
KOALA isn’t just like any newly created institution. We don’t follow trends – we set them! We hope our common, long-term experience can prove to be helpful to you as well.
We welcome you
