Kraamzorg Maternity Nurses
Kraamzorg is a postnatal service unique to the Netherlands, where the Kraamzorg nurse looks after the mothers and babies of a number of families for the first eight to ten days following the birth (either at home or in hospital).
The purpose of a Kraamzorg nurse is to aid the recovery of the mothers and provide assistance caring for the new babies. The primary objective is to help get the mothers back on their feet as soon as possible so they can independently care for their babies and return to daily life.
Over the years, Eden Nannies has registered and placed many professional Kraamzorg nurses who are in great demand due to their excellent experience and training.
We can place a Kraamzorg trained nurse with families as an Eden Maternity Nurse anywhere in the world to provide care and instruction for the mother and care of her newborn.
Kraamzorg maternity nurses undertake the same duties as maternity nurses and include:
- Care for the newborn with bathing, feeding (breast or bottle), laundry – including all the baby’s equipment and the nursery.
- Care and support of the mother
- Advice on breast and bottle feeding
- Help and support with feeding and sleeping routines for the baby
We will be registering a number of new Kraamzorg Nurses in the Netherlands during our next visit. These nurses will be working exclusively through Eden Maternity. If you are a Kraamzorg nurse from the Netherlands please register your interest by contacting a member of our team.
