Our regular team consists of four experienced midwives and two assistants; we form a close team where a common approach for you is paramount. Below we introduce ourselves to you. Our team is regularly expanded with a (permanent) substitute, she also introduces herself below.
We have two assistants: Marieke and Heleen. Below they introduce themselves to you. In the mornings they are ready to answer your questions when you contact us. If necessary, they will put you in touch with the midwife on duty. The working days of Marieke: Monday, Tuesday and Thursday. Heleen works every Wednesday and Friday.
At the moment we have Hanneke van der Heide. Below she introduces herself to you. Hanneke supports our team since the summer of 2019. She is fully familiar with our practice.
We supervise midwives in training in order to contribute to the training of competent medical professionals who can guide a normal pregnancy, delivery, and postpartum period independently and properly. Depending on the level of experience and training stage, we determine which activities the student is allowed to carry out as an apprentice in our practice. One of us is always present here. Midwives in training must abide by the same ethical rules as certified midwives. This means that they are also bound by professional confidentiality. If you nevertheless do not feel comfortable having a midwife in training at your check-up or delivery, just let us know. We will of course respect your choice. Sometimes nurses who are specialising in obstetrics and gynaecology sit in with us for a couple of days. The same goes for doctors specialising in gynaecology. They must gain experience in a midwifery practice as part of the training.
