Giving birth

You and your partner decide how and where you want to give birth. We will do everything possible to facilitate your wishes. Research has shown that women who are well prepared for childbirth generally look back on the experience with a greater feeling of satisfaction. Before and during the delivery process, the midwives of our midwifery practice Amsterdam are fully focused on helping and supporting you, for which they can boast on many years of experience.

The first few weeks

Maternity period

There is still regular contact between the midwife and you, as new parents, in the first few weeks after the birth. During these first weeks, we are responsible for the care for you and your baby and we will visit you a number of times to see how you are getting on.
We will talk extensively about the delivery, we give information, assess the check-ups done by the maternity nurse and help you, if necessary, with feeding and latching the baby onto your breast. You can also use our emergency line 24/7 during the maternity period. Many parents find it reassuring to just ask that one particular question before going into the night.

Childbirth and breastfeeding

Information sessions

We organise monthly information sessions about childbirth, which are on Thursday from 19:30 – 21:45. During these sessions, the midwife will give you all the important information about the birth and the initial postnatal period.

We organise a monthly information morning about breastfeeding, from 10:00 – 12:00. Marieke van Luin, who is a lactation expert, will give all the ins and outs.

Close collaboration

“Great things in business are never done by one person. They’re done by a team of people.” (Steve Jobs).

We collaborate closely with a number of amazing women. Over the years, we have connected with more and more solo-professionals and businesses that, as we noticed, provided ‘our’ pregnant women with great care. People who really stand by your side in every way.
