The waiting room

We value the fact that you can unwind for a while in our practice. Fresh flowers, the latest magazines to read with a nice cup of tea and reading and play opportunities for the little ones. Every week all the names of the newly delivered mothers and their babies come at our mirror. Many pregnant women know each other from the antenatal classes. Taking a look at the mirror is often the first thing pregnant women do when they enter the practice.

Wheelchair users can always receive a home visit by arrangement.

You can always call us


When you are pregnant, you will visit us an average of ten times for check-ups. You and your partner are the focus. We adapt our care to your requirements. It is always possible to have an extra check-up whenever you feel the need. We believe in the ability of women to stand in their own power and prefer to provide care in which you feel comfortable.

We ensure that there is always time to check on you and your baby the same day if necessary.

Your birth preferences are important to us. We will do everything possible to facilitate your wishes. The midwives at our midwifery practice are completely focused on supporting you during this process before, during and after childbirth. We incorporate our years of experience.

There is always an experienced midwife from the Birth Center who comes to support you during labor.
We can guarantee this as one of the few practices within Amsterdam, because we work with two teams and back each other up if needed.

Also in the first weeks after giving birth, there is a lot of contact between the midwife and you as parents. We are responsible for you and the baby during the first weeks. Therefore, we will visit you several times. We’ll see how you’re doing, provide information, discuss maternity care checks and, if necessary, help with positioning the baby.

In addition, our emergency line is open 24/7. Many parents like to ask that one last question before they go to sleep.
