In order to help you to be as well-prepared as possible for the arrival of your child, we provide a few educational sessions. We heartily recommend them, particularly to couples who are expecting their first child.

Informational meetings

Informational evenings are organised for (future) parents in the area. These meetings are set up in collaboration with the LEO midwifery practices in the area, the Centrum voor Jeugd en Gezin (child healthcare centre) and GeboorteHuis Leiden.
