From the midwife

Information sessions

Information evening on giving birth
We organise monthly information sessions about childbirth. During these sessions, which you can attend when you are around 32 weeks pregnant, the midwife will give you all the important information about the birth and the initial postnatal period.

Coronavirus: Because we are currently unable to give an information evening about labour and birth, we are happy to have been granted the permission of Holliday Tyson, Canadian midwife, to share some video’s she made for her clients. We love the way Holliday shares her information. We feel her view on midwifery and birth is very similar to ours.

And for those of you who speak a little bit Dutch, see our home made ones!

Dates of childbirth information session
This information evening is held in English on Thursday from 7.30 – 9.45 pm

23rd of July 2020

Information session about breastfeeding
We provide information sessions to  prepare yourself on giving breastfeeding.
Marieke van Luin, from Mamma Minds, is an experienced lactation counselor IBCLC. She will share with you all you need to know so that you walk away with more than simply the basics. This is also a great and informative session for partners!
Until further notice via Zoom because of the Corona virus.

  • The uniqueness of breast milk
