New student midwife from March 2, Madyasa:

Hello,

My name is Madyasa. I'm in my final year of midwifery and hope to develop myself to become an independent midwife in the following months. I was born and raised in Rotterdam. Being the oldest grandchild in a family of 14 grandchildren I always was around pregnant bellies and babies. My fascination started early. Once I got to time my aunt's contractions (I was 11 at the time) and I was disappointed when they went to the birth center and I couldn't go too! It is still an honor to be present at such a special event and my passion is only growing. I'm looking forward to this internship and to meeting you all!

Replacement midwife Rodante van der Waal

From February 28, 2020, Rodante will join our team to help us during holidays, ilness or leave. 

I was born in 1992 in an appartement in Amsterdam West and four years later my brother was born in the same house. While my mother was concentrating on her contractions, I went for walks around the neighborhood with her best friend. I was nervous, not so much because of the birth, I had a lot of confidence in my mother, but because my important role in the birth of my brother would soon be revealed. I had worked for weeks on his birth announcement (the Dutch 'geboortekaartje') and now there was nothing left to do untill it would be mailed to friends and family, but to wait and run around in the streets.

Going on maternity visits and assisting home births in the same streets as where we grew up feels very special and very familiar - precisely that unique mix that also characterizes the period of pregnancy, birth and postpartum. Being a witness to this and to the cofidence, love and strength with which you give birth and become parents, makes the work as a midwife incredibly inspiring.

I find the same familiarity and inspiration with Sophie, Froukje and Samie, from whom I learned so much during my last internship and with whom I have stayed since then. Next to my job at the Van der Hoopstraat, I'm currently also working on a PhD at the University for Humanistic Studies in Utrecht on the philosophy of pregnancy and childbirth.

New replacement midwife: Rose Hilhorst

From December 1st, 2019, Rose will be working at our practice.

After pre-university education I traveled and lived in Thailand for a year. After returning, I studied pedagogy for a year. After which I subsequently enjoyed my midwifery training to learn this beautiful profession. During my education I also got to know healthcare in Sweden and I further studied care ethics. I like to incorporate these experiences into practice and my interest is also in the scientific research behind our profession. Through personal attention I like to tailor care to the needs of clients. I think it is a privilege to be able to be present during the special time from pregnancy up to and including childbirth and parenting. I look forward to meeting you in person. In addition to being a midwife, I like to work on further deepening my profession, playing football, running, walking and meeting with friends.
