Pregnant together

Congratulations on the birth of your son or daughter!

Congratulations with your son or daughter! Now that your pregnancy is over, a new era starts. In the first week after your baby is born, you are not on your own. Maternity care will be provided at your home. The maternity nurse will help you with the care for your baby, will teach you what you need to know in your own environment and will answer all your questions. Is your recovery not going according to plan or are there questions or concerns concerning your baby? She will contact us.

In this first week, we will visit you a few times as well and you can reach us if you have questions 24/7. During our visits, we will check how you and your baby are doing, whether the maternity care is going well, how you look back at your delivery and whether you need extra help or have questions.

Looking back at your pregnancy and delivery

Six weeks after you gave birth, we will invite you for a consult. We’re curious to know how you and your baby are doing!

How do you look back at your delivery, now that it’s been a while? How did you perceive our care during your pregnancy, delivery and maternity period? Do you have any questions? This aftercare meeting will take approximately 30 minutes. If you have a lot of questions or if there is a lot to discuss, feel free to let us know, so we can plan some extra time for you.
