Maternity hotel

The maternity care is covered by health insurance policies. We will charge you for materials ( € 25 per day), overnight stay for your partner ( € 30 per night) and meals.

Medical insurance and the Birth House

Check whether your medical insurance covers having your baby at the Birth House, if you are insured in the Netherlands. A number of insurance companies partially cover the cost. We are currently negotiating a contract with the insurers so that in future a part of the fee will be paid directly to the Birth Centre. Until this is arranged we will send you an invoice which you can declare to your insurance company yourself.

Midwife's fee

These costs are entirely covered by your medical insurance policy if you are insured in the Netherlands. The midwife will claim them directly from the insurance company.

Maternity assistants fees

The fee for maternity care at your home for a number of hours a day for eight to ten days is almost entirely covered by a standard Dutch medical insurance policy.

Short stay

If you are referred to hospital so your stay at the Birth House is brief (less than four hours) we won't charge you anything in addition to the deposit of € 400.- you have already paid. We'll reimburse the remainder within four weeks. The cost of giving birth under medical supervision in hospital is entirely covered by your standard medical insurance if you're insured in the Netherlands.

If in the end you don't have your baby at the Birth House there will be no reimbursement of the € 25 reservation fee.
