Maternity care

Each baby is unique, no childbirth is the same. That’s why we offer flexible maternity care. During the intake interview, we will determine the assessed indication of the number of care hours. We work with the National Indication Protocol for Maternity Care. The number of hours that the maternity nurse is with you varies from a minimum of three to a maximum of eight consecutive hours. The maximum number of days you can receive maternity care is ten. The day of birth is counted as the first day.

Our maternity care organisation can be of service to you when you deliver your baby at home or in hospital. From six to four weeks before the expected delivery date, we will contact you in order to make an appointment for the intake interview.
The personal details about the care and the agreements made between your family, the midwife and the maternity nurse are recorded in your personal care plan, in the growth guide. Everyday there is close consultation between you and the maternity nurse about the way care is performed. Your personal care plan helps our staff members to pay close attention to the wishes and needs of your family as well as possible.
you will usually get eight days of maternity care. But if your midwife and maternity nurse think it is irresponsible to end the maternity care after eight days, there can be an extension until the tenth day after you have given birth. If you stay with your baby in hospital for more than ten days, there is the possibility of postponed maternity care.
The number of hours of maternity care that is reimbursed by insurance companies varies. Check the conditions of your policy in time or contact our administration. Our staff can tell you all you need to know about these conditions.

Maternity basics

  1. 8-10 days maternity care
  2. Intake interview with maternity consultant
  3. Personalised maternity care plan
  4. Certified nurses
  5. 24/7 available

Giving birth at home, maternity care starts during childbirth. We have our own pole of maternity nurses to assist the midwife during your labour. She will make sure everything is ready for the midwife to allow your baby to be born safely. In case you need to go to hospital during home birth, the midwife will leave your home, and so will the maternity nurse. She will tidy up your home as well as possible for your return.

Ten eerst wil ik jullie complimenten geven voor de nieuwe website. Ziet er goed uit!. Ik wil hier mijn ervaring schrijven over ACK Zorgmaat Kraamzorg. Overal ervaring super tevreden. Vanaf 't begin al, met intake gesprek van de medewerkers, en eindelijk na de bevalling, mevrouw Femmie van de kraamzorg komt voor het eerst bij ons langs. Aangenaam kennis maken en zeer positief ingestelde persoon. Vooral na de bevalling waar zeker zwaar is, zij is altijd vrolijk, behulpzaam en luister goed naar onze wensen. Zij is Open en flexible met onze planning en altijd vrolijk met glimlach. Heel blij mee en goede ervaring geweest met de service. Aanraden dus. Keep up the good work!

I can not say enough wonderful and positive things about Ack Zorgmaat Kraamzorg. This is our second child, so the second time we have used the company. Both experiences have been amazing. We currently have Clementine with us after the birth of our son. She is fantastic! I honestly don't know how we would cope without her help. Clementine is so knowledgeable, kind, caring, supportive and easy to be around. She has helped us with absolutely everything from caring for the baby, looking after me and my husband, cleaning the house, even doing all our washing. She is so easy to talk to, and has already taught me so much in such a short time. Me and my family are very grateful that we have her here during this special time. We want to keep her forever! Thank you so much to Ack Zorgmaat Kraamzorg and especially Clementine for everything, you are amazing at what you do. Much love from Ria, Jorge, Zeltia and Nate. Xxx

We received tremendous help from ACK kraamzorg team in the first days with our newborn sun. Both Kraamzorg nurses, Loes and Lara, were very warmhearted, knowledgeable and kind personalities. They both took very well care of the three of us, our household and our appetite :). We have been teached everything around the daily care of our son step by step in a personal and calm way. For us it was the best kind of service we experienced and we can strongly recommend Loes and Lara in particular. Michael, Kinga and little Noah
