” Birth is the first and biggest life experience of both Mother and Child….
this calls for deep preparation on all levels, physical, mental and emotional!”
Shanti has been teaching Prenatal Classes for 15 years and is still loving it!!
My prenatal class with Shanti was absolutely essential with my first pregnancy. Her breathing techniques helped me through my heaviest contractions when my midwife almost didn’t make it for the birth! When I gave birth the second time around, I remembered everything she taught me and was able to give birth alone and without any assistance. Regardless if you plan on giving birth at home or in the hospital, I recommend these classes to any (new) mom. They help you relax and guide you through a seemingly overwhelming and emotional rollercoaster that is childbirth. I’m so happy to have had this resource available to me.
Testimonio de Olga
La experiencia que tuve en el programa fue súper bonita y llena de aprendizajes, pues cuando comencé el programa tenía pocos conocimientos y lo que sabía era por haberlo leído, pero contar con alguien que haya pasado por lo mismo y que te eduque en el tema es bastante reconfortante y me lleno de calma, los ejercicios me ayudaban a liberar el estrés y cansancio del día, aprendi a respirar y a controlar el dolor desde que comenzaron las contracciones el día del parto y compartir con mujeres que estaban en el mismo estado que yo me dio bastante seguridad.
Ahora después de tan bonita experiencia estoy feliz de que mi bebé tiene a tia Shanti y la visita de vez en cuando.
2021 Tracey’s Testimonial
This is my second time attending Shanti’s Prenatal class and I highly recommend these classes to all who are expecting. Pregnancy and birth can be very overwhelming these classes helped me relax and prepared me be mentally prepared for labor. I was extremely relaxed with my first labor and this comes down to all the classes I took with Shanti. The breathing exercises, reminders to stay calm, how to embrace and manage the pain, all of this made my labor experience a pleasant one. This why I am back to prepare for the arrival of my second child.
2018 Natasja’s Testimonial
I highly recommend the Shanti Prenatal program to all pregnant mothers. I have experienced it as a relaxed lesson where I’m preparing for the moment of birth. It relaxed me to hear tips and tricks. At the moment of birth I had the tools to get through the experience even when it got difficult. I was positive and knew what I wanted or needed at every stage of the birth experience. This program gave me the knowledge of what was happening and it helped me convince myself I can do it.

2017 Adiella’s Testimonial
As a first time mom you get (unwanted) advice thrown at you from every direction. Friends, family, even strangers! It can be very overwhelming. Not to mention all the hormones and the changes in your body that you’re dealing with. This combination can cause a new mom lots of stress. Shanti’s class helped me relax and bring me back to what’s really important in my pregnancy; my well being. She gave me a time to relax and reflect, to realize that I know exactly what is right for my baby and me during this pregnancy. That I am strong and am able to handle whatever labor has in store for me. The classes made me more relieved about the labor and to be accepting of whatever happens during it. My labor was completely not what I expected, but I was fine. I kept thinking back on Shanti’s words and it helped.
I recommend this class to anyone who is willing to go into it with an open heart and mind.

2012 Getuigenis van Juliette
Ik ben begonnen met zwangerschapsyoga bij Shanti. Een aantal kennissen op Aruba hadden mij dit aangeraden. Ik ben heel blij dat ik dit ook gedaan heb.
De lessen zitten vol goede tips en het is heel fijn dat je met andere moeders to-be bent zodat je ook tips met elkaar kunt uitwisselen.Je leert wat je te wachten staat, hoe je moet ademhalen, ontspannen en hoe je je weeen het beste kunt opvangen. Ook hoe je moet persen en wat je partner kan doen, komt aan bod. Daarnaast zijn er extra lessen zoals een bezoek aan het ziekenhuis, partnerlessen, borstvoedingsvoorlichting en een presentatie van een osteopaat, wat alles nog fijner maakt.
