Welcome to The Birth Centre!


Recently the Dutch Maternity Healthcare has had a lot of attention in the news and on social media. The midwives of the Amsterdam Birth Centre would like to take this opportunity to emphasise the following intention once more. Our wish is to provide Midwifery care in a way that is closely aligned to your individual wishes, in a manner in which you feel most safe and secure. We respect all your choices (within medically responsible limits) with regards to the care you wish to receive. Our goal is to do our very best to provide you with good care during your pregnancy and child-birth and for you to have a good and healthy experience. In other words, we do stand for freedom of choice within our Dutch Maternity Health Care system.


The Birth Centre is a dynamic centre for expectant and new parents in the centre of Amsterdam. Everything a pregnant woman or new parent needs is available in one centre: an obstetric practice, a maternity care centre, a course centre, a clinic, a lactation consultancy, a day care centre, a complementary treatment centre, and the Birth Shop. All medical services and courses are provided under one roof, in one street. All the departments work together. Everyone is looking in the same direction and this builds trust and gives peace of mind.

On this website you can find information on the whole of the Amsterdam Birth Centre and you can register for a range of care and activities.
