Welcome to Duo Purple !

We are your regular midwives: Melissa Sloot and Lotte Thurkow.

Melissa worked as a nurse before she became a midwife. With Melissa you will find experience, a down-to-earth and practical perspective on life and warm commitment.

Being a midwife is in Lotte’s blood: her mother is a midwife and her father is a gynaecologist. Lotte also has a degree in sexual health consultancy.

We look forward to caring for you in the coming months!

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 yellow duo.


If you do not have a medical indication then one of the midwives from Team 2 will provide the care during labor and delivery. This is the purple or yellow, so aside from Melissa and Lotte this is Rofayda, Fien, Remke or Maylis. 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

Melissa and Lotte do prenatal consultations on various days. All of the appointments are at our locations at the health center Venserpolder and the health center Reigersbos.


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 1 or 3 will come to provide the care during your birth. This does not happen often.
