The Delivery, a life- event. In advance you never know what is about to happen. Sometimes you deliver quick and sometimes it really takes time. We are there for you and will be by your side, to make sure that your delivery will go as smooth as possible.
How you look back on your delivery is very important to us. Discuss your wishes and thoughts with us, so that we are both prepared.
Do you have a medical indication? Also then we offer to assist during the delivery.
