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.
If you have no medical indication, Caroline or Leanne will supervise the delivery. At your request, this can be done at home or in the hospital. You will find us in 90% of the care moments. The remaining 10% (holidays and / or private matters) is taken care of by another Vida colleague from Team 2, Duo Yellow or Duo Purple.
During the maternity week, we do three house visits to see how everything is going and to do your check ups. After 6 weeks we plan a follow-up during the consultation hour.
All ultrasound scans (early viability scan, dating scan, 20-week, growth, fetal position) are made by one of Vida’s midwife sonographers. For the green duo this is Maylis Sanjuan and Remke Grootenhuis.
Together we will discuss which ultrasound scans are applicable to your pregnancy.
Maylis and Remke also provide our contraception care. The contraception care and all ultrasound appointments take place at our location at the Health Center Reigersbos.
Caroline and Leanne have consultation hours every other week on Fridays. Friday morning in Abcoude and Friday afternoon in Vinkeveen.
The ultrasounds are made by a Vida ultrasound technician at the health center in Reigersbos, Amsterdam Southeast.
Your midwives are available 24/7 for deliveries and / or urgent questions.
Leanne and Caroline are both on duty half the week. You may call them when they are in the schoolyard or in a meeting. Our safety net is such that we can come immediately if necessary.
If a delivery is already in progress, we will refer you to another Vida midwife, but this is rare.
