What to expect from the 3-day conference/Paramanadoula cursus?

After the three days, you will know important information about the physiology of birth, pregnancy, hormones, birth, breastfeeding. Depending on the interests of the participants, we’ll also discuss induction, food and needs during pregnancy, the use of echography…

This course is suited for all, doulas, mothers, women, men, partners, parents and non-parents, medical professions, and will bring beautiful insights on how to best support a pregnant or birthing person.


Who is Michel Odent?

Michel Odent was in charge of the surgical and maternity units of the Pithiviers hospital (France) from 1962 to 1985. After 1985 he settled in London and assisted home births. He was the first to introduce to the medical world concepts such as birthing pools during labour, the support of breastfeeding during the hour following birth, or singing sessions for pregnant women. He founded The Primal Health Research center (London) and brings together scientific studies showing the links between what happens early in life and health later on.

Michel Odent is also the author of more than 50 scientific papers, as well as 15 books, translated in 22 languages. His latest book, Childbirth and the Future of Homo sapiens, was published in September 2019.

About the venue:

Due to the Covid-19 restrictions, we have had to change venue. The new location is the Van Houtenkerk in the little town of Weesp, right outside Amsterdam. The Van Houtenkerk is a beautiful re-purposed church located in the city center of Weesp, close to lunchrooms and restaurants. It is spacious enough to allow us to gather and to respect the current health guidances.

Address: Oudegracht 69, 1381 XX Weesp



Also due to covid, we have decided to offer an online version of the course.

The online version will be live at the time of the event, and with also space to catch up later (within 2 weeks), if you are not able to attend the course at once.


The participants will also be able to ask questions - it will most likely be asked to record them or to write them in advance, so that it can be answered, also if someone is not online at the moment of their question. We'll do our best so that everyone can feel included


The online participants will also get the certificate for attending the course.
