Maternity preparation

A space to prepare for the birth physically and emotionally, to inform you about the different options for childbirth and parenting, to prepare you for the changes and to share your concerns. We will approach motherhood as an opportunity for growth to rediscover the body, breastfeeding and parenting, and to live the physical, emotional, mental and couple changes to the full.

Objectives and Methodology

The aim of these sessions is to increase awareness of one's own body and knowledge of the reality of motherhood/parenthood both at birth and in childbirth. This allows us to gain the necessary confidence to make responsible and informed decisions, thus knowing our rights and those of our children.

In each session there will be a theoretical part, a practical part of body work and a space to share doubts and concerns.

The following topics will be covered:

  • Pregnancy and birth professionals: who are they, what is their role, which one to choose?
  • tests: which ones are compulsory, what do they entail?
  • Changes that can be expected

"I don't know if I can ever find a way to express all that you have transmitted to me in a few words. First of all I would like to tell you how grateful I am, it has been fantastic to meet you and I am honoured that you have shared your great knowledge with us. I come out of the classes, week after week, more and more focused and calm with the final process of pregnancy. Without a doubt, everything is becoming clearer and more enriching. The power of knowing is incredible. This is it, you have totally empowered me, I feel that I am very clear about what I want or don't want during the birth of my son and at the same time you have helped to awaken in me the mammal that we carry inside, the one that lets it flow and feels prepared for whatever may happen. Thank you infinite Imma, from the bottom of my heart".

"It has been a very enriching course. An alternative to the typical pre-birth course. Much closer and more personalised. Led by a great professional with a spirit full of experience and knowledge. A close and decisive person who is worth listening to. A welcoming space where you can get to know the process of pregnancy and childbirth, to understand it and live it without fear and with the freedom and security that comes from knowing what is happening. Thanks to Imma for organising a course like this. Highly recommended"
"The childbirth preparation course given by Imma approached us, in a very respectful and scientifically based way, to everything related to childbirth and postpartum. We understood how the woman's physiology works, the rhythms of a normal birth, the establishment of lactation, the postpartum period and the important role of the couple in the whole process. In fact, it was a before and after, because in just a few sessions, and with the large amount of contrasted information that she provided us with, we were able to decide on the birth option and accompaniment that we wanted. We left this course confident, capable and informed to start walking the great journey of parenthood. We were extremely grateful for everything you offered us Imma!"
"Thanks to this course I feel that I have all the information I need to live the adventure of motherhood with full awareness and knowledge. Imma is wise, rigorous, professional and always ready to accompany you and answer your questions. The atmosphere is family friendly and perfect for a tribe! Super recommended !!!! "
"I went during the autumn of 2019, without having any references, but I got it right. From the beginning she was close, direct and eager to accompany us in such an important moment as motherhood and fatherhood, a time full of illusions but also of doubts, fears and insecurity. I recommend it to 100%".
"I highly recommend the 100% course. Super complete, you get to know aspects of pregnancy and postpartum that nobody tells you about. It helped me to decide for a natural birth and to be fully informed at every stage, giving me peace of mind throughout my pregnancy".
"The classes with Imma Sàrries helped me to feel confident during pregnancy and childbirth. She helps you to know and believe in your body's capacity. She gives you up-to-date information based on scientific evidence and your rights. And the best thing is the advice she gives you from her experience as a professional, a mother and a woman. Our little girl is 1 year old and we still remember quotes from her. We are very grateful for your support".
"Doing the course with Imma was a great success. She is passionate about what she does, very professional and knowledgeable. The classes were very well organised and helpful. For me, as a mother, she helped me to empower myself and to know how to prepare myself for the part I wanted for myself and my son".
"We were quite sure that the birth would be in hospital, but we didn't want to repeat the experience of the birth of my eldest son. We did the training with Imma and we immediately realised that she gave us information and tools with professionalism, as well as the security and confidence necessary to be able to experience a respectful birth. And so it was, thanks to the course, her accompaniment and support at all times, Ada was born in hospital with a fantastic natural birth. Without Imma's guidance I would not have had the strength to make it possible. I am infinitely grateful. "
