Presentation of Birthlight Austria

October 13th was the day. After two months of preparation we presented Birthlight Austria.

It started at the beginning of August, when a part of my team and I founded Birthlight Austria during conception days in the thermal spa Laa Thaya. There we have fixed the 13th October for a big presentation of Birthlight in Austria. Aquababy is the only baby swimming school in Austria that offers Birthlight classes in water.

As a pioneer, we have begun to compose texts for a homepage, hire pools, order merchandising products for goodie bags, organize a room for presentation, prepare a press kit and work hard on the presentation.

My husband Rainer has created the homepage

And then the big day has come. I was a bit nervous, but I had great support from my team. Many interested people were in the audience and listened attentively. Agnes was the moderator and I spoke as an expert for Birthlight.

As a surprise for the Birthlight Austria team, I organized a video message from Shawn Tomlinson, who was tutor at the first teacher training course in Austria in May 2017, and from Alison Duff, who will be taking over after Shawn's retirement, with their best wishes for Birthlight Austria.

I thanked the whole Aquababy team for their hard work, especially Romana, Tanja and Agnes, who will be the first Birthlight teachers in Austria after myself. The audience had interesting questions and after they were answered, we invited them to small snacks. We distributed goodie bags for them and we had cakepops with the Birthlight logo on them. They looked stunning and tasted delicious.

The first Birthlight courses in Austria started at the beginning of December and we were very pleased to hold them.

In February 2018 there will be a teacher training course for toddlers, one for children with special needs and in October 2018 the next teacher training course for baby swimming is planned.

Welcome to our beautiful country!
