Dutch prenatal care
I am pregnant and will be giving birth in the Netherlands. What practical preparations do I need to make?
Will my Dutch health insurance cover childbirth costs if I am already pregnant when I move to the Netherlands?
Can you please tell me what services I can expect from a midwife?
How can I find a native English-speaking midwife?
Most midwives in the Netherlands have a good command of the English language. Your huisarts (GP) should be able to refer you to an English-speaking midwife, so please do not hesitate to ask him/her for a referral or recommendation. We also suggest that you visit the English pages of the Royal Netherlands Organisation of Midwives website.
