“It takes a village to raise a child”

M. Kesselring 2010

It takes a village to raise a child is an African proverb which means that it takes an entire community of different people interacting with children in order for a child to experience and grow in a safe environment.

With providing our personal midwifery care during pregnancy, birth and beyond we want to empower you to make decisions about how you want to give birth and to feel supported at all times. We believe it is important to offer choice and control over the type of birthing you choose. This can be a home delivery, or in hospital, with or without pain relief, or a water birth. We will guide you one to one throughout your delivery.

Ultrasounds in Zwolle

The first few weeks are a time of tremendous excitement; and the 11 week scan can feel like a lifetime away. You are probably keen to have an early scan in pregnancy to take your first look at your developing baby, confirm you are pregnant and roughly how many weeks pregnant you are, and check all is well before you spread your good news. For this reason, many mums-to-be like to have an early scan which you can book at our midwife practise

Choice of delivering

The Dutch tradition of a free choice of place of birth for low risk women including home birth is quite unique in the western world. Our care is characterised by open communication, a personal approach and commitment to each client. We aim to support you in your individual needs to enable you to enjoy your pregnancy and empower you for a positive birth.

Corona and pregnancy

If you are pregnant or have just given birth, you may be worried about the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. Based on the current knowledge, pregnant women do not seem to have a higher risk of becoming infected with the coronavirus; this means that they do not appear to be more susceptible to the virus than people who are not pregnant. As always, it remains important to follow the current measures.


We understand very well that this time demands a lot from you as a pregnant (and from your partner). It can evoke feelings such as fear, insecurity and disappointment. Suddenly you notice that we do not have everything under control and that requires a lot of your adaptability. We want, especially in this time, to stand next to you and unburden you. We would like to keep you informed about the rapid changes surrounding COVID-19 and the measures we are taking for this as midwives, hence this special Corona page on our website. This page contains the most recent information.

Vaccination is safe during pregnancy 

Pregnant women have a higher risk of becoming seriously ill from the coronavirus than women who are not pregnant. This elevated risk is higher for pregnant women who have underlying health conditions (such as diabetes, heart disease or respiratory conditions). For that reason, the previous recommendation was only to vaccinate pregnant women who had underlying health conditions. By now, we know than 90,000 pregnant women in the USA have been vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines made by Pfizer/BioNTech and Moderna. No serious side-effects have been reported in that group. For that reason, all pregnant women are now advised to be vaccinated when they are invited for vaccination, preferably with an mRNA vaccine.

More information on COVID-19 vaccination in the context of pregnancy can be found in the position statement posted by the Dutch Society for Obstetrics and Gynaecology (NVOG).
