Welcome to Team Bijlmermeer

We are your regular midwives: Maria Hoenderdos and Roelie Brouwer.

Maria is not only a midwife, but also a sonographer and trained in external cephalic versions. Her love for people from different cultures, has resulted in Vida being the perfect place for her to work as a midwife for many years. She’s fluent in French and speaks a little bit of Spanish. Maria is the mother of two daughters, Sam ’05 and Lila ’07.

Roelie has started working as a midwife with Vida as of 2023. She’s originally from a small town in the middle of the Netherlands, but moved to Amsterdam for her studies and never left. Roelie really wants women to be informed about their pregnancy, so they can make choices that according to their preferences.

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

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask us.

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 Team Diemen


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 Team Bijlmermeer or Team Diemen, so aside from Maria and Roelie, this is Thessa, Emma 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

Maria and Roelie have prenatal consultations on various days. All of the appointments are at the health center Klein Gooioord at the Bijlmerdreef next to the metrostation and the health center Venserpolder.


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.

We hope you have a healthy and amazing pregnancy!
