Why should you choose Astrea?

  • Do you want to have children?

    We specialize in preconception support for couples who want to conceive, and provide advice on how to quickly achieve a healthy pregnancy.

  • Personal counselling

    Astrea Midwifery Centre offers a safe environment for you and your partner so you can enjoy this special experience together.

    Childbirth as a special experience

  • Childbirth as a special experience

    We do this by encouraging you to trust your body and your own strength.

  • Postnatal care

    The postpartum period is wonderful, but can also be intense and challenging.

  • Preventing pregnancy

    We are specialized in contraceptives and can help you decide the best birth control method for you.

  • Counselling in case of miscarriage

    Unfortunately, not every pregnancy goes well. We have trained ourselves to give you the appropriate counselling you deserve.

So you discovered you are pregnant... what now?

If your pregnancy test is positive, please call us for an appointment. A referral from your GP is not required. However, it may be useful to inform your GP that you are pregnant.

  • The first check-up is usually scheduled to take place around the 8th week of pregnancy. During this check-up, we will make an ultrasound to verify the pregnancy.
  • Please tell us if you and your partner have any special wishes/expectations during the pregnancy.
  • We listen carefully to your needs and tailor our care accordingly.
  • During your appointment, you will receive an ultrasound scan at each check-up.

The fertile days

Officially you are 1 week pregnant, but your baby does not exist yet. The moment of fertilization is close. The most fertile period is about three days before ovulation up to the day of ovulation.


The counselling was fantastic

I loved going to Astrea for check-ups and appreciated the fact that they always made time to have a quick look inside my belly. The counselling during the pregnancy was fantastic. My delivery was like a textbook example: at home and with the guidance of no less than two of Astrea's great people. I have the most beautiful photos to show for it!

The ladies of Astrea reassured me

While my pregnancy was not without complications, the lovely ladies at Astrea always reassured me. I view the delivery positively and am very happy with the result

Professional approach

I was happy with the good support during the pregnancy and perhaps even more so during the delivery. The ladies are so sweet. Thanks to the professional approach, I felt secure enough to give birth at home. To be fair, you need some luck with that – but it went reasonably smoothly and I felt in control thanks to the guidance of Astrea's midwife!

I will never forget the good care provided.

My pregnancy carrying our Joost was a very beautiful time and I will never forget the good care provided by the ladies of Astrea! I have fond memories of the long, but above all beautiful, delivery in hospital. I greatly admire how calmly and skilfully these ladies do their work! If I am blessed once more, I would like to use your services again
