What do we do
In the Netherlands there is a unique system of midwives and gynecologists. Midwives guide the healthy pregnancies and regular births. A gynecologist steps in when complications arise. A midwife is primarily a medical expert. But, aside from this she is also a coach and a confidant during the whole pregnancy period.
A midwife has had an intensive education of 4 years to get a bachelor degree. During those 4 years a midwife in training spends 50% of her time doing internships, so by the end of her training she has witnessed and assisted already a few hundred deliveries.
Naturally, you can come to Midwifery Practice Eindhoven for guidance during your pregnancy and delivery. Also the most ultrasounds (and fun-ultrasouns) during the pregnancy are made at our practice.
If your pregnancy and delivery is assisted by a gynecologist, you need a midwife for your medical checkups during the postpartum period. You can register with us for this purpose.
Aside from this we offer a child-wish office hour to couples who would like to become pregnant.
