Welcome!

Expecting a baby is an exciting time for you and your family, especially when you are (far) away from home. You are most welcome to our midwifery practice 'De Kern' in Leiden. We are dedicated and experienced midwives who love to be at your side during your pregnancy and birth. We cater for all tastes; from assisting a water birth at home to arranging an epidural for you as you wish. All of the midwives at De Kern speak English. One of our midwives is also fluently in German. And another even speaks Swahili ;)
