Emma is an experienced and dedicated midwife. She has lived most of her life abroad and has a bachelor in public health. She is also a mother of two children.

Midwifery Care

Check-up appointments

In the beginning of your pregnancy you will come about once a month for a check-up. This will increase in frequency until the end of your pregnancy when you will come once a week. At essentially all of your appointments you will see one of us. It may happen that due to our appointment schedule or your own schedule it may be more convenient to have your check-up with the red duo.


If you do not have a medical indication then one of the midwives from Team 1 will provide the care during labor and delivery. This is the blue or red duo, so aside from Thessa and Emma this is Maria, Anne or Marike. Depending on your preferences this can be at home or in the hospital. We have a lot of experience with water births. We change shifts for who is on-call for deliveries every 24 hours.

Prenatal Consultations

Thessa and Emma do prenatal consultations on various days. All of the appointments are at the health center De Brede Hoed in Diemen.


Your midwife is reachable 24/7 for births and emergencies. If the midwife is already busy with a delivery then another Vida midwife from team 2 or 3 will come to provide the care during your birth. This does not happen often.
