Our vision and approach
The period surrounding pregnancy, birth and the few weeks that follow is something that you experience only once or a few times in your life. Our experienced team of midwives focus on you and your partner during this period. We believe our work is to facilitate and manage this basically healthy process. Our care is based on the latest findings and most recent professional guidelines and we take your personal wishes into account.
“I totally felt comfortable with you all during my pregnancy. You make a good team! It is a pity that I could not have you while giving birth. Thanks a lot for all your support!”Karen
“I was well informed about everything. My partner was fully involved and informed. Personal attention was given. After care support was really good.”Sally
“It is very nice you have multiple locations, therefore it's easy to make an appointment to one's convenience.”Hiromi
“Ik kijk met veel dankbaarheid terug op mijn zwangerschap, bevalling en kraamtijd; heerlijk ook dat ik zo vlot thuis ben bevallen en dat Gijs gewoon lekker in zijn eigen bed lag te slapen. Veel dank dus voor jullie begeleiding en in het bijzonder natuurlijk voor de perfecte ondersteuning tijdens de bevalling! Zo wil ik nog wel een paar kinderen!”Meeike, Amsterdam
“Wat ik goed vond aan de praktijk: De bereikbaarheid, de toegankelijkheid van de verloskundigen en de begeleiding. Vriendelijk personeel dat open staat voor vragen en opmerkingen. De samenwerking met het VU ziekenhuis en een doorverwijzing voor een echo voor de zekerheid. Er werden geen risico's genomen. De begeleiding tijdens en na de bevalling vond ik erg fijn.”Melissa
All the information from getting pregnant to the postpartum period
If you are not yet, but wish to become, pregnant you and your partner are welcome for a preconception consultation. We take a look at your health and provide comprehensive information, perhaps even improving the conditions at conception and having a positive effect on your and your future baby’s health.
Hooray, you’re pregnant! Your body and your life are going through lots of changes. We are happy to guide you from the moment you become pregnant. We let you and your partner know what you can expect and what you need to arrange. We provide information about prenatal screening if desired. We also want to hear about your needs for the coming period.
Labour and delivery
We give you extensive information in the time leading up to the birth. How do you prepare yourselves for this event? Will you give birth at home or in hospital? We want to hear your ideas and personal wishes. At the information evening we will discuss all the ins and outs. At a check-up appointment you receive information about when to call.
Your baby is here! It’s the beginning of a special and dynamic time. You need rest to recover and to adjust to the new situation. We guide you through this, together with the postpartum assistant. The postpartum assistant helps you with caring for the baby and with feedings. Together we check to make sure everything progresses normally. We also provide services to women who were under the care of a gynaecologist during pregnancy and birth.
