The midwife practice

Additional care and collaborations

We work closely with some amazing health care professionals who provide complementary care from childbearing through postpartum. Over the years we have connected with more and more ‘solo’ professionals who we see provide great care for ‘our’ pregnant women, who really look at your personal situation and what you and your partner need.
