How happy we are that our daughter was born and how grateful we are to you for supporting us in the entire process! You are all so knowledgeable and up-to-date. Every time we are helped so well and you listen as if it is the very first time that you hear these stories ("Gosh, have a little trouble with this", "When do I have to call again?"). So nice! Very, very, many thanks for your help!

Wonderful, wonderful, wonderful. Every encounter with the midwives and each appointment were lovely. The midwives are extremely attentive and I felt like I was their only patient. The birthing experience was great and I loved the two midwives who were with me through it all. They were calm and confident and I never doubted their skill - not once. I Highly recommend!

Our experience with the Witsenkade is very nice. When I was pregnant the first time and we started a conversation, we immediately felt very comfortable and taken seriously. Of course it was still early, just getting acquainted, but we immediately had the idea: with this practice it is all right. We had a lot of support for Laudi when we unfortunately got a negative result of the combination test after 14 weeks. After the premature delivery, there was very attentive contact several times to ask us how it went. That is why there was no second doubt when we could conceive again to return to the Witsenkade. The delivery went very smoothly, following an unexpected and exciting stomach operation. Even after this procedure, the practice remained very attentive and alert and we were always asked about our condition. It was great that it was very positive from our practice to respond to our heart's desire: giving birth at home. It was without any exaggeration the best delivery we would have wished for. Very relaxed at home, our son Monty was born at two high in the Jordan. Lights dimmed, a calm environment: exactly as we wanted. The fantastic, determined Maartje was a super coach and did not manage the delivery better. We experience this evening and her performance as a great gift.

Good thing about Bob, Eveline and baby Monty.

My wife had no experience with the care that is given in the Netherlands. For this reason we were looking for a midwifery practice that could give her confidence in the days before and during the delivery. We were in good hands at obstetrics practice de Witsenkade because not only all employees are confident and experienced, but also because they sympathize with both the expectant mother and father.

Every time we had an appointment at Midwife Practice Witsenkade we looked forward to it. The personal attention, the time and the often nice sober approach, while we always felt taken seriously, we have experienced as very pleasant. The small team of midwives gave us a very welcome feeling and their experience and professionalism was always noticeable. During the appointments there was enough time to ask for everything and the midwife watched and listened carefully to the pregnant woman and her partner (s). In our case, all three of us were actively involved during the appointments. Practice ensures that you have met every obstetrician before delivery, so that there is always someone you already know during the delivery. The birth itself was a very special and beautiful experience, partly due to the fact that Laudi always continued to radiate trust, skill and tranquility. We will not soon forget her!

I was very happy during my first pregnancy accompanied by the skilled ladies of the Witsenkade. Each and every one of them has a passion for the profession so that I felt that my baby and I received the best care during all months. In case of a possible second pregnancy I would definitely return to the Witsenkade.

After two pregnancies abroad, I ended up at the witsenkade for my third pregnancy. All ladies have years of experience and you notice that in the way of guidance. He is super professional and personal. I really felt that I was seen and heard. Moreover, through their knowledge they could make a very easy link with my previous experiences. The practice on the whites quay is a place of peace and simplicity from which a perfect guidance is given to the birth of our daughter. This practice is highly recommended!

During the pregnancy of my first child, I became acquainted with the Witsenkade Midwives. It was a great meeting, because I found plenty of room to ask the questions that I wanted to ask and I was taken seriously in this. It was striking that the sincere involvement was tangible: my joy was shared in the feeling, hearing and seeing of my unborn child, and with each contact we came back to the topics that were important to me in my private situation. Care is offered tailor-made.

The midwives have a warm character, they are involved, careful, knowledgeable, honest and clear. This was confirmed when it was time for the birth to announce itself: respectful and expert guidance was there at one of the most important moments of my life. The midwife gave me confidence, helped me relax during childbirth and offered reassurance during this special event. The aftercare also went well. I remember that the midwife who was at the delivery insisted on coming back for aftercare. This not only testifies to professionalism, but I also felt very safe and at ease as a brand new mother. I have great admiration for the Witsenkade team, I look back with joy on the guidance before, during and after my pregnancy. Meanwhile my son has just turned 1 year, incredible! And we got a very nice start together.

Thank you very much for your guidance on my pregnancy and delivery (Laudi and Lotte in particular) I found it very special to give birth at home and felt very supported by you. I look back on a good time with very nice, fun, cozy and knowledgeable care. Thank you very much!!!

Meanwhile, my second child was born with help from the midwives of the Witsenkade. In both pregnancies I have very good memories of the friendly and clear guidance prior to delivery, as the adequate and clear guidance during the deliveries. The different ladies from the Witsenkade (both on the Nicolaas Witsenkade and on the Lindengracht) know how to find a middle ground between a business and friendly bond. This makes you feel at ease, they are sweet and understanding when the situation demands it, but also clear and sometimes strict when needed. I also have nothing but good memories about the guidance during the deliveries, as well as my husband. Both midwives who helped me with the delivery were very clear, constantly encouraging and strict when I needed it. It is wonderful to look back on these special moments with a big smile. Thank you ladies, I am giving you all the guidance of your women!

Just before I traveled for six months, I found out that I was pregnant. In a short time (within a week) I had to arrange a number of things for my pregnancy, including a midwife. I ended up at Midwife Practice Witsenkade via the internet. Petra who did my intake was very relaxed about my travel plans and partly because of that I also relaxed my sabbatical. I have had the checks of the first 5 months in different countries and every time I emailed Witsenkade about the results, but also what kind of research I needed. I think I have seen and seen everyone from the Witsenkade and to what I have experienced they are one for a pleasant and skilled ladies who work well together.

I want to thank you for the good and knowledgeable guidance. I realize that you have a heavy responsibility, especially to take the right decisions at the crucial moments that are good for the mother and the child. Maartje did a fantastic job during my birth and afterwards. And I especially want to thank Petra, Lotte and Laudi for the guidance during my pregnancy. Respect ladies!

M.a.w. definitely a must if you are looking for a nice and skilled practice!

During my first pregnancy, very nice and warm accompanied by the midwives of this practice. Pleasant conversations and medical well-grounded. Nice that the first ultrasound on the practice could take place and that there is also an evening consultation. During the birth I felt supported and also when I was transferred to the gynecologist for the last piece Emily stayed, which I particularly appreciated! For a next pregnancy I would choose this practice again!

We want to thank you for the super guidance during my pregnancy. unfortunately, I could not please you but during pregnancy I have always felt good and you treated me as a mother in the cap and nothing like a pediatrician, that helped me a lot. We are now going to enjoy and with a next pregnancy we will definitely knock on you again.

The midwives at the Witsenkade are sweet, professional and yet warm. They helped me very well in both pregnancies. They think along with you if you want things to be different than normal. Very involved and open. Very nice also to be able to do echoes on the practice itself. Also very nice that they have so wide opening hours and that you immediately get a midwife on the phone. This allows you to ask low-threshold questions that you do not want to call the 06 number for. I would recommend them to everyone.

We are very grateful to all ladies of the Witsenkade for the fine guidance during pregnancy. We met everyone in the 9 months and we felt comfortable with everyone. We are very well guided and reassured where necessary. We were also always well informed and more than enough time was made available for us. The delivery went well with the great support and involvement of Lotte. All in all, dear and involved midwives. We recommend the Witsenkade to every pregnant woman !!

Lots of love Sebas, Tisja and Bowie

From the first echo on which a mini-bed could be seen to the pleasant visit in the maternity week and everything in between, thank you very much for your fantastic care, commitment, expertise, reassurance and sharing the joy! We could not have done better. Who knows until next time!

My two pregnancies went through with the ladies from the Witsenkade. I find the care that I received there from an exceptional nature; always a listening ear where they acted with an empathic, yet professional. Besides their personal contact, their website is full of answers to questions.

This practice is very professional and it has a very nice, pleasant atmosphere. All midwives working are patient, professional and provide the right information that you need. Fine are also the different locations in the city. During childbirth, we acted wisely and explained everything well and calmly. You can go with all your questions and they are also flexible with regard to making appointments. An absolute must for when you are pregnant for the first time or have several children.

A very professional and friendly midwifery practice with people who clearly enjoy their work. The midwives listen carefully, take all the doubts and questions of pregnant women seriously, and do not hesitate to refer if necessary.

In retrospect, I realize that they have a heavy responsibility to guide you well and to make decisions that are right for you and your child. These ladies have guided me very well and I have always had the fullest confidence in them. My thanks are big dear ladies!
