5 pair of eyes, but 1 close team! At the Bakermat we work with five midwives.

Because we work as a team of midwives together, we have a lot of different experience and knowledge in one team. And besides that, there will be always a fresh and fit midwife availabele for you!
We stand in for eachother during holidays and sickness, so you wont see any other extra face during your pregnancy or delivery.
Anne-Gies Maessen and Luisa Kraan are our assistents. They are present at our practice every morning. They help us with all the administrative tasks and will answer the phone every morning to help you with your questions. (0317-411971 monday to friday 9:15-12:00).
Consultations are held at our practice at Boterstraat 4A in Wageningen. On every weekday (and at least one evening) there are one or two midwives at the practice running a consultation hour.
If you just want to find out something, read up on things or feed your baby, you are most welcome in our large waiting room during opening hours.
Births, maternity visits and emergencies.
One of our midwives is on duty every day and every night. This means she could be helping with a birth, but she may also be visiting families who just had a baby on that day. In the event that there are two or more people giving birth at the same time we can rely on each other and associate practises ( Midwifery practice ‘Eva’ or ‘Goed Begin’).
We see each other almost daily and are in close contact. This way each one of us knows precisely what is happening in the practice and what the situation is with our pregnant women.
Midwives in training
During the time we supply care a midwife in training may be present or provide care under our supervision. Information about who is accompanying us is available in the waiting room. If you do not want him/her to be present at checkups or the birth, you can always let us know.
At the moment there is no midwife in training at the Bakermat.
