Maternity care and examination

After welcoming your new baby, you’ll begin the ‘kraamweek’ (this is dutch for the first week) as new parents. This is the first week after delivery. A special period that encompasses joy, recovery and getting to know your son or daughter. We will be there for you during this stage.

Maternity care

At Femme Amsterdam we work with independent maternity nurses. We have a list of recommended maternity nurses at the practice. You can schedule an introductory meeting in advance to determine whether she is a good match for your family. The maternity nurse will also assist with light household tasks so that you can focus on recovering from the pregnancy and delivery. If it is your first baby, try to get minimal 6 hours a day (=48 hours) maternity care.

Professional breastfeeding care

Are you experiencing difficulties nursing your baby? Feeling uncertain about whether things are going well? You can schedule an appointment with lactation consultant Heleen Hilgers. Our lactation consultant is a specialised expert within the field of breastfeeding. She can provide advice during pregnancy or offer support while (establishing) breastfeeding. This includes latching on, expressing milk and production. Together we will look at which options are best for you and your baby and what feels right for you.

Mixed feelings about motherhood

Throughout the pregnancy, you look forward to the arrival of your baby. The reality, however, is that you won’t always feel overjoyed after welcoming your little one. This is to be expected and is not always a cause for alarm. Parenthood is coupled with a good deal of responsibilities, worries and sleepless nights. Have you been struggling regularly with feelings of uncertainty or depression since the birth of your child? Please contact Marith Cohen de Lara of Zwanger&Psyche. She can help you.
