Congratulations! This is the start of a special period and step-by-step you will prepare yourself for the moment that your little miracle is born. We would like to guide you through this process. However, you can also come to us when you have the desire to have children or you are looking for a midwife for maternity care after your delivery. You can register here.
You, as a pregnant woman, and your partner are our priority. We believe in the ability of women to empower themselves and love to offer our support and advice in a private and intimate atmosphere.When you are an international or expat living in the Netherlands we know that there are quite some differences between receiving health care here and the care you have received in your home country. We take the time to explain what you can expect and to understand your needs. When you have a positive pregnancy test the first thing you have to do is find a midwifery practice in your neighbourhood and make a first appointment. It is not necessary to contact your family doctor first. In many other countries, it is common to make an appointment for a first visit with a gynaecologist. In Holland, the midwife is the one who is in charge of taking care of regular pregnancies. She provides prenatal, natal and postnatal care. Only in case of medical complications she will consult a gynaecologist. Would you like to read more about pregnancy and giving birth in the Netherlands?
