Antenatal appointments

During a normal pregnancy, birth and postpartum, the midwife is the person to go to for follow-up. Midwifery-led care has been seen to lead to a better experience for parents and more satisfaction during the pre- and postnatal period. 

At Zwanger in Brussel we combine monthly check-ups with information regarding labour and birth in a calm and comfortable environment. We inform you about the process of pregnancy, birth, postpartum and breastfeeding. Every appointment there is time to ask your questions.

The consultations are held in different locations. Everyday it is possible to have an appointment in our practice in Molenbeek, close to Dansaert. Every monday morning consultations are possible in Praktijkhuis Bles in Laken (next to huisartsenpraktijk De Tandem).


The first appointment takes about an hour. During that hour a file is opened and you get information about the way we work. Apart from that there is time for all your questions, we do the medical check-up (even take a blood sample when necessary) and you get a pregnancy booklet. Further medical consultation take 30 min.

In the first months of pregnancy the consultations are scheduled monthly, after that the frequency goes up, even to weekly follow-up in the final weeks of pregnancy.

The medical checkup consists of:

  • the measurement of the blood pressure
  • the measurement of the fundal height to follow up the growth of your baby 
  • the feeling of the belly from 28 weeks of pregnancy to determine the position of the baby 
  • the listening to the baby's heartbeat 

We give you a prescripstion for the ultrasounds at 12, 22 and 32 weeks. At least once per trimester a blood test is taken, more if necessary. When there is an indication, transferal to your physician or obstetrician is made.


Appointments are possible:

  • Praktijk Zwanger in Brussel in Molenbeek - Verrept-Dekeyserstraat 39, 1080 - every day of the week
  • Praktijkhuis Bles in Laken (huisartsenpraktijk de Tandem) - Pannenhuisstraat 46, 1020 - monday

We advise you to contact us as soon as possible during your pregnancy.
