Where to have your baby

If there is no medical reason to have your baby in the hospital, some couples choose to go for a home birth.

It can be a very positive experience to have your baby at home. Some women can relax more in their own personal space. The choice is very personal. You can also choose for a hospital birth.

One of the midwives from the practice and a kraamverzorgster (maternity carer) will assist you during the birth.

If you choose to have your baby in the hospital under our care, or there is a medical reason to have your baby in the hospital – this process is a simple transfer due to the short distance to the local hospital and our close working relationship with the Reinier de Graaf Hospital .
