If you give birth in hospital and there are no medical conditions, you may go home two hours after the delivery of the placenta.
When you return home, the maternity nurse will come to you immediately to explain about baby care and to check on mother and child. The maternity care comes every day for three to five hours.
You can arrange the maternity care yourself, preferably before 16 weeks:
The following maternity care organisations are active in Eindhoven:
