Midwife at home

the maternity period

The maternity period is an intense period. In particular, the first 40 days or 6 weeks you need all the rest. The care of a newborn, the physical recovery and the new role you take on as a parent demand all your energy. We visit regularly to see and hear how you are doing. 

 

The medical checks

The medical checks include…

Checking the blood loss, the uterus and any stitches.

We monitor the weight of the baby, check the color, check the navel and, if necessary, perform a heel prick.

Breastfeeding guidance

Breastfeeding is a skill. Like learning to walk or talk, it takes some practice, but once you've left it often feels very natural. We are here to support you during this growth process. To grow your confidence in your own abilities and those of your baby. If you suffer from pain or other problems, we observe what may be the cause and provide suggestions. Such as when you contract a breast infection, when you go back to work, when solid food is added or when you want to reduce breastfeeding. Even then we are there for you.

 

Even after you have left well, there may still be moments where you can use extra help. 

Not only is a baby born, but also a mother.

Postnatal care up to 1 year after delivery

As a midwife, we are there for you and your family throughout the year after the birth with questions about reflux, sleeping behaviour, ... but also if you need a listening ear.

Practical information

We are conventioned. This means that medical care after childbirth 100% refunded be provided by the mutuality. We do not work with the third-party payer scheme. 

In addition, we ask for a one-off contribution and a kilometer allowance per visit.

It is preferable to contact us during your pregnancy. Then we schedule a consultation in our practice. We can get to know each other, explain our working method and rates and open a medical file.

Postnatal doula care

Pregnancy preparation often stops with childbirth, but that's when it starts! je prepare for a soft start makes a world of difference. For yourself and your newborn baby as well as for your family. A little one there, whether it's the first time or not, asks a big adjustment. That can be overwhelming.

During this period it is important that you do not have to worry about your household.

That everything is clean, but that you do not have to take care of it yourself. That there good food on the table, but that you do not have to cook yourself. Not a superfluous luxury when you see that this has become established in many countries. Here we have lost that a bit. That's why we decided to in addition to medical follow-up to also offer postnatal doula care during the maternity period. Heng Ou mentions this in her well-known book 'The first forty days' the pinnacle of mother-centered postpartum care.

The first 40 days for the next 40 years.

"What do we do for you?"

you may wonder. As postnatal doula we stand at the service of you and your family during the maternity period. Our main role is to make sure you have everything you need so you can focus on caring for your baby. That you are well nourished, hydrated and comfortable. In the philosophy of holistic care we adapt based on your needs and that of your family. We always start our moments together with the question 'What do you need?'

What do you need?

We are not here to tell you how to do everything. We are here to help you empower in your own version of parenting. to help you trust your own intuition. Need a quiet shower alone? Then we will be happy to take over your little one, but it is not our intention to take your baby away from you.

Placenta print

After 9 months, your baby and your body say goodbye to the placenta – a wonderful organ. In our Western culture, the placenta is often regarded as medical waste that must be disposed of soon after birth.

Yet many cultures around the world give (spiritual) importance to the placenta. They do this in several beautiful ways, because in their eyes the placenta is the first, forgotten chakra.

But we can also just thank the placenta for taking care of the fetus during those nine months, by making a placenta print: it is a beautiful keepsake to keep forever.
