Terra midwives

Obstetric care in Amsterdam and surroundings​

We’re a small team of four involved and enthusiastic midwifes. During your pregnancy, we get to know you pretty well. We strive for you to see each one of use at least once during your pregnancy, so as to ensure you see a familiar face at your delivery.

What may you expect from us? That we will put your wishes first. That we provide you with solid, reliable information. That we’re trained to signal any problem. And that we commit to you, your baby and your pregnancy for the full hundred per cent. Always.
