Welcome to Team Purple !

We are your regular midwives: Melissa Sloot and Leanne van der Poel.

Melissa studied nursing before she decided to follow her heart and switched to studying obstetrics. She’s been a midwife for well over 10 years now and loves what she does. Last year, she enrolled in a study sonography to further specialize. Zuidoost has much of her heart as she was born and raised here and around Abcoude. Melissa has two sons and were born in 2015 and 2017 under the care of the Vida colleagues.

Leanne is a skilled midwife and has been with Vida for years. She also completed a Masters at the UVA, but feels more like a midwife rather than a researcher. Her passion is to give women confidence in their pregnancy and labor. She does this through listening to what her clients find important. Leanne has three children, born in 2017, 2019 and 2022. All three were born in a birthing pool at home under the care of the Vida colleagues.

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 team.


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 team, so aside from Melissa and Leanne this is Rofayda, Soraya, 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 Leanne do prenatal consultations on various days. All of the appointments are at our locations at 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 will come to provide the care during your birth. This does not happen often.
