What is extra care
During this indescribable period in your life, extra attention and care is an essential. Not only attention for the growth of your baby and your physical wellbeing, but also for mind and soul. This is what we do at ELLE Midwives: we go the extra mile.
That's why we keep on repeating: at ELLE you get more. Therefore we have developed ELLE Extra Care and ELLE packages. What exactly does this mean?
The Extra care at ELLE has many add-ons compared to the Dutch standard offered obstetric care and is free of charge. In addition, you can further expand our extra care with an ELLE package. See the difference between standard Dutch midwifery/obstetric care and our Extra Care in the table below.
