About the Event
Babies have a great need for communication and closeness and develop very quickly. When moving with your baby you get more of an eye for what your baby is saying with his/her body and you learn to carry him/her in a basic affirmative way. This way your baby gains more confidence in itself and in you and a secure attachment is created. You facilitate motor development with movement games and baby yoga, you learn simple songs that appeal to your baby and you dance while carrying your baby - nothing is more delightful for such a little one. A good foundation for your relationship and motor development is laid in the first year and a half; your baby will benefit from it for a lifetime! At the end of each lesson there is an opportunity to exchange experiences.

About your teacher:
Mirjam Vos is an absolute legend in the Amsterdam mama and baby world.
The connection with my body has always been natural and fundamental. I was trained to become a dance teacher after high school (vwo). The arrival of our daughter (in 1990) inspired me to consider and set up a course I called Moving with your baby (Bewegen met je baby). After the birth of our son (in 1994) I became interested in Baby massage (including Shantala) and followed a two-year haptonomy degree programme at the University of Applied Sciences (hbo). I became increasingly interested in perinatal and parental issues and I have been running pregnancy classes since 1995.
I trained initially to become a Pregnant & Fit instructor and then a course leader for Pregnant Together (Samen Bevallen). Later I became a teacher for these training sessions. I became an accredited Bowen therapist in May 2011. My focus during this complementary manual therapy was primarily on the treatment of babies, pregnant women and mothers, although I have stopped offering these sessions. Since 2012, Mindfulness has become a major area of focus.
For my work as a Bowen therapist I graduated in 2016 summa cum laude in The Fundamentals of Medical Knowledge (Medische Basiskennis) from the University of Applied Sciences. My first book, Liefdevol bevallen (Birthing with Love), was published in 2019.
Personal contact and the exchange of experience has always been important to me. That’s why I work with small groups. I often attend deliveries as a way to stay in touch with expectant couples and babies. I keep up to date with the latest insights and developments through ‘education permanent’ by attending symposia and following refresher courses in a wide range of relevant areas of expertise. In the course of the 25 years that I have been giving pregnancy courses and baby classes, the Geboortecentrum Amsterdam has remained both my cradle and my practical base.
