Midwifery in the Netherlands

Gepubliceerd: 25 september 2013, laatste update: 26 maart 2020

The Netherlands is not only famous for its tulips and windmills, its maternity system is just as outstanding. The Dutch tradition of a free choice of place of birth including home birth is quite unique in the western world.

The leaflet 'Midwifery in the Netherlands' will provide you with lots of information about the Dutch maternity and midwifery system, and touches upon some of the challenges we face.

The Royal Dutch Organisation of Midwives (KNOV) offers certified midwives from abroad an introduction to the Dutch Midwifery system. Unfortunately, the Summer School of 2020 has been cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. More information on the next Summer School that will most likely take place in September 2021 will follow.
