Obstetric Practice

Congratulations! Cautious happiness, bewilderment, disbelief, doubts or delirious joy? Everything's possible. Whatever, you're pregnant and you're looking for a midwife. We'll help you on your way. We'd like to support you through a healthy and safe pregnancy and birth and give you a good start afterwards.

We focus first and foremost on the pregnant woman and her partner. Our obstetric care is geared as closely as possible to the individual wishes of the pregnant woman. We are flexible and take pleasure in providing personal and professional "tailor made" care. We believe in the capacity of women to give birth under their own strength, and we value the atmosphere of privacy and intimacy they need for this to happen. Every woman and every birth is different. It's important to us that every woman has the opportunity to give birth in her own way.

A birth's success doesn't depend on how it progresses or whether it was easy or difficult. The success is chiefly determined by the feeling that you have done everything possible to bring your baby into the world safely and you have been helped to do so lovingly. It then doesn't matter how you eventually give birth: at home, in hospital, with forceps or with an epidural. Even a caesarean can be a triumph. With this attitude, your birth can never go wrong.
