Deliver a baby at home

Did you know that giving birth at home is unique in the world? In the Netherlands, midwives and maternity nurses are specially trained for this. You even get extra care hours for it! Your maternity nurse will come to your home at the request of the general practitioner or midwife to ensure that you lack nothing. It is ensured that all necessary items are available and that you can give birth as quietly as possible. Childbirth is supervised together with the midwife and the child is cared for immediately after birth. The maternity nurse only leaves when everything is under control.

Give birth in hospital

Sometimes, on the basis of a medical indication, a choice is made to give birth in the hospital. In that case, the costs will be reimbursed by the health insurer. You can also choose to give birth in the hospital. The costs are then not reimbursed. It is important to know that the transport to the hospital itself must be arranged. After childbirth, it is carefully checked whether the family is ready to go home. As soon as this is the case, you can call Handle With Care to have your maternity nurse come.

Handle with Care offers more than just the necessary.
