Before, during and after the pregnancy
Femme Amsterdam is cooperating in a team with various health care providers like an acupuncturist, osteopath, coach, pelvicfloorphysiotherapist and a lactation consultant. Beside that we offer pregnancy massages at the Rub, where they also provide babymassages and pregnancy yoga.
We experienced from our future mothers that they appreciate the collaboration with the other health care providers. It feels more save to be refered by your midwife and to know that particularities will be communicated with them. And above all it’s easy that you can meet all the health care providers on the practice of Femme Amsterdam.
Each pregnancy is unique which is why we allow you to choose your own additional services and care. Twelve credits are included in the Premium package which can be used as you see fit. We will provide further information and assist you in making a selection.
Of course, you want the very best for your (unborn) child, and your own health and wellbeing are also a top priority. This means you need to take a careful look at your nutrition throughout your pregnancy. You’ll require extra doses of some nutrients while others are best avoided. Schedule a consultation with our nutritionist Sharon Looijen. She can provide more information about which factors and lifestyles can influence your baby.

During pregnancy an giving birth there is a big chance you will develop complaints with your pelvis or pelvic floor. Research show that 67-89% of the pregnant women experience pain in the pelvic area in the third trimester. Also vaginal labour increases the risk of pelvic floor dysfunctions.
