  • The practice


A midwife in the Netherlands plays a very important role in the medical care for pregnancy, delivery and postpartum care. A midwife has an intensive training of 4 years to get a bachelor degree. During those 4 years a midwife in training spends 50% of her time doing internships, so by the end of her training she has witnessed and assisted already a few hundred deliveries.

Verloskundige praktijk Kinderrijk Meerhoven started in 2003. 
The name of our midwife practice has been chosen for 2 reasons. The first reason is the composition of the neighbourhood Meerhoven, divided into 5 parts: Grasrijk, Zandrijk, Bosrijk, Waterrijk en Meerrijk. Meerhoven can rightfully call itself very “kinderrijk” (which roughly translates to “rich with children”). The second reason is that we can count ourselves rich when you have children. Hence the name Kinderrijk Meerhoven.

In 2016 we started our dependance Midwifery Practice Eindhoven, a midwifery practice specialized in the care for expats and internationals.
Kinderrijk Meerhoven / Midwifery Practice Eindhoven consists of 2 midwives, Geertje Swinkels en Janneke Oudenaarden. During the pregnancy you will get to know the both of us. By clicking on the pictures below you can find out more about us.

Because our practice keeps growing, we are supported by two colleague-midwives;
Nikki Thoone en Yvonne Leenaerts. During your pregnancy you will also get to know the both of them. This way you will always have a familiar face with you during your delivery.
They would also like to introduce themselves (select the image).
