Bespoke experienced midwife practice in Amsterdam & surroundings since 2003
From of your wish to become pregnant, during pregnancy, birth and beyond. We are there for you
Finding out that you’re pregnant is one of the most memorable moments of your life. We know how important it is to find the very best care for you and your baby when you’re expecting in Amsterdam. That’s the only thing that counts. You will receive more care than average in Dutch obstetrics/midwifery, free of charge, as we believe in tailor made care that suits your needs. You will have unlimited appointment; you can come in as often as you like. We work with highly experienced health care professionals who give supplementary care. To prepare you for birth and beyond you will be able to follow our online pregnancy course for free. Furthermore during Centering Pregnancy, three sessions will be with (birth)partner about birth and in an individual double session we discuss your birth plan. With or without pain relief, at home, birth centre or hospital, everything is possible. At our own ultrasound centre you can book any scan you’d like 7 days a week. You will be cared for by our small team of experienced midwives and together with you we will aim for a relaxing, stress-free pregnancy, labour and beyond. Our care is 100% covered by all Dutch (and international) health care insurances.
Having a baby in Amsterdam and surroundings
While pregnant you want the best possible care for you and your baby, especially when you (and your partner), are living abroad. We have extensive experience in guiding expat pregnant women and aim to meet the highest standards and look forward to seeing you in our practice. We believe pregnant women deserve all the care and attention they need to make it a positive birth experience. That’s why you can choose to follow Centering Pregnancy. It’s a new way for women to receive prenatal care. Medical check-ups, support, and education all take place in a group setting. Compared to traditional prenatal care, women spend more time with the midwife and with other pregnant women, which gives them a chance to learn a lot more about pregnancy, birth, and parenting. Following your intake you will have the option to choose between traditional prenatal care or taking part in Centering Pregnancy. Sign up or plan a get-to-know-us appointment.
Choice of birthplace
Luckily the Netherlands is not only famous for its tulips and windmills, its maternity system is just as outstanding. The Dutch tradition of a free choice of place of birth for low risk women including home birth is quite unique in the western world. Our care is characterised by open communication, a personal approach and commitment to each client. We aim to support you in your individual needs to enable you to enjoy your pregnancy and empower you for a positive birth. Our care is 100% covered by all Dutch health insurances and farmost international insurances.
Ultrasounds in Amsterdam
The first few weeks are a time of tremendous excitement; and the 11 week dating scan can feel like a lifetime away. You are probably keen to have an early scan in pregnancy to take your first look at your developing baby, confirm you are pregnant and roughly how many weeks pregnant you are, and check all is well before you spread your good news. For this reason, many mums-to-be like to have an early scan which you can book online at our ultrasound centre Echo Amsterdam.
Pregnancy scans upon request
We offer a much wider range of scans (also during the pandemic!) than the standard scan to determine the estimated due date (11 weeks) and anomaly scan (20 weeks scan) offered by your health insurance. You may want to know the gender of your baby, perhaps you’ve had a previous miscarriage and need reassurance. We offer gender scans from as early as of 14 weeks pregnant and 3D/4D baby scans giving you a unique opportunity to glimpse precious images of your unborn child.
When you’re pregnant, prenatal tests give you information about your health and your baby’s. They can help detect any problems that could affect him, like birth defects or genetic diseases. Read more.

I have used Verloskundigen 101 for my two pregnancies. Both deliveries were in the natural way and the second one at home. Both very well managed, also during the COVID pandemic and the result two healthy and beautiful children. I really recommend this practice and these lovely ladies!
Ze luisteren, nemen de tijd en zorgen ervoor dat je je goed op je gemak voelt. Tijdens de bevalling wist ze precies wat ze moest zeggen om ons er doorheen te slepen en was daadkrachtig, maar stelde ook gelijk gerust waardoor we de bevalling echt als een prettige ervaring hebben mogen meemaken. Ik kan Verloskundigen 101 aan iedereen aanraden!
Gedurende mijn zwangerschap voelde mij op mijn gemak in deze praktijk en heb ik veel vertrouwen gevoeld. Ik kan iedereen verloskundigen101 in Amsterdam aanraden! Lieve, vriendelijke en professionele dames die goede zorg en ondersteuning bieden! Bedankt!
Geweldig team! Enorm betrokken, nuchtere en positieve verloskundigen. Je kunt met al je vragen terecht, doen nooit moeilijk en vinden altijd tijd voor je als dat nodig is. Ik gun iedere zwangere deze begeleiding.
I had the most amazing experience with the midwives of Verloskundigen 101. As an expat having her first child in Amsterdam, their knowledge and guidance was invaluable during my pregnancy. Thanks to them my daughter’s birth was just how I hoped it would be. I would absolutely recommend their services to anyone!
Bij de volgende zwangerschap zou ik weer terug gaan naar verloskundige praktijk 101. Er is veel aandacht voor je als persoon. Ze geven het gevoel dat je altijd mag bellen als er vragen zijn. Lieve mensen die rust en vertrouwen uitstralen maar ook stuk voor stuk een band met je op kunnen bouwen.
Ik ben heel tevreden over de zorg die ik ontvangen heb bij 101. Mijn man en ik hebben alle verloskundigen van 101 ontmoet en vinden hen stuk voor stuk aardig en kundig. Tijdens het hele proces, van zwangerschap tot en met bevalling, zijn wij goed geïnformeerd en geholpen. De dames bij de receptie zijn ook erg aardig en hielpen ons goed met het inplannen van afspraken. Wij zouden 101 dan ook zeker aanraden!
