how we work
More support with Centering Pregnancy
You may be familiar with the saying: ‘it takes a village to raise a child’. That is why at amstermam you get much longer and extensive group meetings as standard instead of short consultations. . Under the supervision of a permanent midwife, you will come together with 12-15 (future) mothers. You follow the sessions together with women who have the same gestational age, which creates special and long-lasting friendships. At each meeting we discuss various topics related to pregnancy, giving birth, maternity and parenting. Did you know that your employer officially gives you time off for obstetric consultations? We have prepared a letter for employers. Ask our assistant.
Scientific research shows that Centering Pregnancy has advantages such as: fewer premature births, more knowledge, better preparation for childbirth, less stress, fewer referrals to the gynecologist during pregnancy and childbirth and more frequent breastfeeding.
Of course, you may feel more comfortable with standard pregnancy care. We will discuss this during the intake and we will discuss with you what the possibilities are and what your care plan will look like.
