The ‘Birth street’ (Het Geboortestraatje)
The last part of De Genestetstraat is also called ‘the Birth street’.
And for good reason, because nearly all buildings have something to do with pregnancy and babies. It is a green spot in the city. Wisterias embrace the façades and there are more trees and a sandpit.
Every window shows the Birth Centre logo: a tree. There is a coming and going of strollers and baby slings. No rush, there is plenty to see in the street. The café at the corner starts buzzing early on a weekday, with parents who come to relax after a class, after shopping at the Belly Baby store, or after a consultation. Surrounded by the hustle and bustle of the city, the green Birth street has a village atmosphere. And when the flag is hoisted from the Birth Hotel, a new baby has just been born!
Mary-Elliz Sheridan has been working as a midwife since 1990. She is the co-founder of the Birth Centre and owner of the Birth and Maternity Hotel.
She has attended around 3000 births and is a mother of 3 grown-up children herself.
