When to call?

Wanneer bellen?

Call the midwife if:

  • In case of long-term blood loss. Short-term it can be more, specifically at the time when the amnion is expelled. But if you continue to lose a lot of blood or clots, or in case of dizziness, fainting or seeing stars, call us immediately.
  • In case the pain is unbearable.
  • In case you have a fever. A temperature above 38˚C or higher can point to an infection.


For questions, if you are concerned or feel the need for emotional support you can always call the midwife on call.
