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 Soraya, Jamie, 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.
Our experienced maternity nurses Maria and Elsa do all of the postpartum visits for the purple duo. We strive to have at least one of the visits during the postpartum week to be done by one of the midwives from the purple duo, if possible the midwife who attended the birth.
All ultrasound scans (early viability scan, dating scan, 20-week, growth, fetal position) are made by one of Vida’s midwife sonographers. For the purple 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. Aside from making ultrasounds, you will also see Maylis and Remke as midwives, and who knows, maybe even at your birth!
The ultrasound appointments take place at our location in Gezondheidscentrum Reigersbos.
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.
