Team

Meet our team

Midwifery Centre Nova has an enthusiastic, various and concerned team of midwifes. In order to keep you from seeing to many different faces during pregnancy we work in two teams; one per location. However in our close collaboration we help each other where we can so it is possible that you meet some midwives from the other team as well. Our unity behind the scenes guarantees a high standard of care at both locations.

We do our utmost to divide the prenatal check-ups and shifts between the midwives of the regular teams. However, due to illness or holidays this is not always possible. In that case it is possible for you to meet a midwife who helps us out wherever possible. The midwives are all familiar with us and the practice and we fully trust them with the midwifery care.

Studenten

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.
