Personal message on why I offer this series

"Many birth preparation programs focus on educating you extensively about the birth process, anatomy, breathing techniques, pain management options, and more. It might feel like obtaining a degree in Pregnancy and Childbirth.While these programs provide valuable knowledge and a sense of control, they can also overwhelm you with details and rigid ideas of right and wrong.I believe we also need quiet moments for reflection and inner experience—to truly understand, trust, and act from within. This is especially important during pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and the transformative journey into motherhood.That's why I am passionate about offering this series of workshops.We will prioritize silence, journaling and sharing to foster insights and clarity.We will create space for your inner wisdom to surface, allowing your decisions to be grounded in both external knowledge and internal intuition.During this 5-week journey, you will become an expert in your own breath. You'll also gain comfort in your mind and body through tools like breathwork, meditation and self-compassion. These skills wil not only support you during pregnancy and childbirth but also enrich your life and relationships—forever." —Katia Khomich

"I was lucky enough to have three private sessions at home with Katia. Our time together helped me get perspective, give time to think and reflect on my pregnancy and the labour to come. Thanks to her help, I managed with no pain relief. It was intense, calm, tough, but beautiful and instinctively natural. I am so grateful for her support, and breathed through the labour, despite having to be under medical care.’ – Holly

“I had a wonderful experience in this class. Can’t emphasise more the importance of taking a moment to slow down, be present, and relax (which is crucial for expecting and new moms). I'd give a solid 10/10. The instructor's voice had a transformative quality, guiding us to different dimensions during meditation (prior body movement exercises have definitely helped too). This class provided ample time for reflection and helped me feel grounded in the moment and for a few days after. Highly recommended!” – Dina

“Katia is a fantastic teacher, she has been able to create a nice atmosphere in no time and make all of us feel at ease. If you are looking for a safe space where to relax this is the place ti be!” – Federica
