Meet our team
Midwifery Centre Nova prides itself on their diverse, enthusiastic, dedicated and committed team of midwives. To make sure you don’t see too many different faces during pregnancy we register you at a prenatal team once your registration comes in. The prenatal teams are: location East (Van Swinden) & Diemen and location IJburg.
Each day there is one midwife on call, this can be a midwife from prenatal team East or from prenatal team IJburg. Therefore it’s possible to meet a midwife you haven’t seen yet in case of emergency or delivery. Should you wish to meet all the midwives in pregnancy? You can let us know and we’ll make sure you have seen us all at least once.

Both our locations in East & IJburg have an assistent present. She’s the first point of contact during your registration, to make or reschedule your appointments and she answers all questions during opening hours between 09:00 and 12:00.
They help each other out during sick leave or holidays.
It is very important to us to share our knowledge and enthusiasm with the next generation of midwives. We therefore choose to have interns from the midwifery academy Amsterdam. You might meet our students during clinic, your delivery and postnatal period. Depending on the phase in their education our interns will be either mostly observing or working independent under our supervision. It is important to know that our interns are always working together with us and never instead of us. However if you do not want an intern during you consult or delivery feel free to let us know.
