Each baby is unique, no childbirth is the same. That’s why we offer flexible maternity care. During the intake interview, we will determine the assessed indication of the number of care hours. We work with the National Indication Protocol for Maternity Care. The number of hours that the maternity nurse is with you varies from a minimum of three to a maximum of eight consecutive hours. The maximum number of days you can receive maternity care is ten. The day of birth is counted as the first day.
Our maternity care organisation can be of service to you when you deliver your baby at home or in hospital. From six to four weeks before the expected delivery date, we will contact you in order to make an appointment for the intake interview.
The personal details about the care and the agreements made between your family, the midwife and the maternity nurse are recorded in your personal care plan, in the growth guide. Everyday there is close consultation between you and the maternity nurse about the way care is performed. Your personal care plan helps our staff members to pay close attention to the wishes and needs of your family as well as possible.
you will usually get eight days of maternity care. But if your midwife and maternity nurse think it is irresponsible to end the maternity care after eight days, there can be an extension until the tenth day after you have given birth. If you stay with your baby in hospital for more than ten days, there is the possibility of postponed maternity care.
The number of hours of maternity care that is reimbursed by insurance companies varies. Check the conditions of your policy in time or contact our administration. Our staff can tell you all you need to know about these conditions.

Giving birth at home, maternity care starts during childbirth. We have our own pole of maternity nurses to assist the midwife during your labour. She will make sure everything is ready for the midwife to allow your baby to be born safely. In case you need to go to hospital during home birth, the midwife will leave your home, and so will the maternity nurse. She will tidy up your home as well as possible for your return.
Are you pregnant and do you intend to breastfeed your baby? Good information obtained during pregnancy can increase your confidence in breastfeeding. Our lactation consultants will gladly give you information about it.
Every first Thursday of the months March, June, September and December there is an informative meeting from 7 pm to 9 pm.
Rates are € 7,50 / your partner is free of charge.
The meetings are held at Paasheuvelweg 39 F te Amsterdam.
