Throughout this important time in your life we will support you from beginning to end.

A midwife is a medical practitioner as well as a coach; during a  normal pregnancy she is there to monitor and to offer support and advice

Being midwives we have all the necessary medical knowledge and job skills to take care of you and your baby. We also possess al large dose of calmness and confidence. In the Netherlands, a healthy woman with an uncomplicated pregnancy, is monitored by a midwife. Sometimes extra tests or expertise may be necessary. Therefore, we work together closely with other professionals such as a gynaecologist, who has specialist qualifications for managing complex or high-risk pregnancies.

Care and attention during this special time

Monitoring pregnancies is more than just checking blood pressure and listening to your baby’s heartbeat. We understand that this is a very important period in your life. That is why we want to make sure we provide you with all the care and attention you need for your journey towards parenthood. Find out more about our vision.
