Who else

We work with a network of health providers to provide you with all the care you need. Some of the specialists we work with introduce themselves here.

Koen Deurloo - Gynaecologist Diakonessenhuis

Koen Deurloo - Gynaecoloog DiakonessenhuisMy name is Koen Deurloo, and I am the in-house gynaecologist for midwifery practice De Geboortezaak in Utrecht-Leidsche Rijn. I regularly consult with the midwives about the best care for pregnant women who also need my expertise. For me, making decisions together with the pregnant woman, putting her in charge and discussing every detail is extremely important. We also have consultations where I see pregnant women together with their own midwives. Koen is the first gynaecologist in the Netherlands to perform a cesarean section assisted by the mother. He regularly writes for magazines for pregnant women and young parents.

Franyke Banga - Gynaecologist St. Antonius Hospital

Franyke Banga - Gynaecoloog AntoniusziekenhuisI am the in-house gynaecologist for midwifery practice De Geboortezaak in Utrecht-Leidsche Rijn. I have been working as a gynaecologist since 2009 and at the St. Antonius Hospital since 2016 with a specialisation in obstetric care. I work together with the midwives of De Geboortezaak for pregnant women who would like or need to see a gynaecologist during their pregnancy. I visit the midwifery practice to consult with the midwives and to see the pregnant women during a consult with their own midwife.

Rian van Arkel - Physiotherapist

Rian van Arkel - fysiotherapeutMy name is Rian, and I work as a pelvic physiotherapist at the same location as the midwives. I guide pregnant women and women who have just given birth in individual consults as well as ZwangerFIT (PregnantFIT) classes. You might also know me from the CenteringPregnancy meetings. I am usually there during the second class to inform you about the changes in your pelvis during the pregnancy.

Petrouschka Swinkels - PsychologistPetrouschka Swinkels

I am a healthcare psychologist and EMDR Europe practitioner, and I have my own practice for 16 years. I am specialized in counselling pregnant women or women who have just given birth who suffer from anxiety, trauma or depression. I am involved, transparent and open, and I find humour during my treatments very important.

An Berben - Chiropractor

An Berben-chiropractorAfter my medical education, I went to study chiropractic and specialised in treating pregnant women and their babies. The hormones that prepare the body for labour also make the back and pelvis more flexible, which can lead to physical problems. Special gentle techniques are used to treat any symptoms in all phases of the pregnancy. The consults take place at my own practice in Leidsche Rijn.

Fleur de Miranda - Sexual Health ConsultantFleur de Miranda-consulent seksuele gezondheid

Next to working as an assistant at De Geboortezaak, I also have my own practice as a sexual health consultant, in which I help couples with questions about their sexual health. Especially, as you will experience sexual changes during the pregnancy, it would be good to investigate together with your partner what your needs are and those of your partner. I love to use my expertise to make sexual pleasure possible (again).

Gideanne Bröcheler - Women's coach & doulaGideanne Bröcheler-vrouwencoach-doula

After working as a midwife for 25 years, I now guide women during or after their pregnancy. I can help you with questions about motherhood or childbirth, because genuine attention can help you. I am also a doula and can guide you during labour, whilst working together with your midwife.
