Everyone is asking us how we did it: two amazing births after 40 (one painless and one aerial). The answer is simple: with the knowledge of others and yes, with a bit of luck. So here you have our top resources that made both pregnancies/deliveries possible.
For the first pregnancy, we read all these books and others. For the second pregnancy, I asked the writers of these books (and other amazing teachers) for an interview AND they said yes.

The difference between a happy post-partum period and post-natal depression was largely made by the supportive presence of De Gebortecentrum. Amazing resource for the gals who live here in Amsterdam. Make sure you book these ladies!
