Pregnant, now what?
The first weeks after a positive pregnancy test is often an exciting period and a lot comes at you.
Know that you can already call us to make an appointment for a 1st ultrasound and of course also for questions and concerns.
Have an ultrasound made?
An ultrasound is offered every time during the check-ups. In the first two check-ups, it is important to measure the baby. The first ultrasound is called the ‘vitality ultrasound’ and the second ultrasound in our practice is called the ‘term ultrasound’. Your final due date is determined during the term ultrasound.
The ultrasounds at our practice are made by all midwives. Ingrid also works as an ultrasound technician at CVONL. If preferred, she can make your 13- and 20- week ultrasounds there. After your term ultrasound has been made, we will send a referral and the assistant at the ultrasound centre will contact you to schedule an appointment.
Full of passion and confidence!

Start with Centering Pregnancy!
Instead of individual check-ups during pregnancy, care is offered in nine sessions to a group of approximately 8-10 pregnant women with approximately the same gestational age. To attend the centering pregnancy sessions you must speak and understand the Dutch language.
During these sessions, pregnancy checkups are combined in a fun and informal way with information, interactive learning methods and conversations about what keeps you and your fellow pregnant women busy during pregnancy.
