Refresher Courses

Refresher courses are for parents who have already had a baby. They offer you a chance to spend a little time focussing on this subsequent pregnancy and birth, reflecting and building on past birth experiences, preparing for welcoming the new baby into your family, meeting others in a similar situation and making friendships.

Whilst the detailed agenda of the course is set by the group itself, key topics at a refresher course could include:

Debriefing previous birth and parenting experiences

Recapping on the process of labour and coping with pain

Recapping on possible medical interventions

Vaginal birth after caesarean

The different roles of health professionals in Belgium

Preparing young children for the arrival of a sibling

Refresher courses are shorter than first-time parents' prenatal courses and are usually held every three to four months.
