Pregnant in Amsterdam?
Welcome in our practice!
We are thé midwifery practice for Amsterdam Center, East, South and ‘De Pijp’! We are well known for our excellent medical care and our approach in which we work together with you towards a healthy childbirth.
We believe in personal care.
High-quality personal care means that we guide and support you in a good and safe way. It also means that we help you to understand what is happening during your pregnancy, so that you can make the best choices and can really enjoy this special period. That is why, for example, we take plenty of time during your appointment to explain exactly how your baby is developing, what you can expect during pregnancy and the delivery, and of course to answer all your questions as clearly as we can.
Personal care also means that we tailor our care to your requirements. We listen carefully to what your ideal birth is like and make a birthing plan together with you. We discuss where you can give birth, what kind of painkillers are available and in which positions you can give birth. During the delivery we will give you room to determine what makes you feel good.
Our practice is participating in the IRIS study
The growth of your child during pregnancy is very important for his/her healthy development. For this reason we will monitor his/her growth by taking careful measurements of your belly. In the IRIS study we would like to investigate how well this method is able to identify unborn children who are too small. As we also believes this to be important, we are taking part in the IRIS study. What does this study mean for you? If you decide to participate we will perform two extra ultrasound scans. And a short form asking about factors which could influence the growth of your baby. If your child appears to be growing suboptimally, we will carry out further research and if necessary refer you to the hospital. More information about the study is on a leaflet in our Practice.
