Our birth centre has two obstetrical rooms with the look and feel as close as possible to ‘home’. Both rooms provides the possibility for use of our birthingbath.

Due to our recent move to the new accomodation at OLVG Oost, unfortunately we don’t have any pictures yet.

A birthing pool filled with warm water can help you relax and feel more in control. Part of your labor, delivery or both can take place in the birthing pool. Waterbirths can result in a more natural and relaxed experience. Benefits include:

  • Warm water is soothing, comforting, relaxing
  • The effect of the buoyancy allows free movement and new positioning
  • Warm water relaxes the muscles, leading to a better birth process
  • Eases the transition to the outside world for the baby

In case of emergency all equipment is nearby. If necessary a reanimation table can be used by pediatricians, medical personnel and your own midwife.
