In 1998 de Eilanden Maternity Care was the first maternity care organization in the Netherlands to obtain the ISO/HKZ certificate. Our organization is also in possession of the WHO/UNICEF certificate Commitment to Breastfeeding.


This means that our staff members are specialized in providing breastfeeding guidance in accordance with the “Ten steps to successful breastfeeding” from the World Health Organization (WHO) and UNICEF. Educating our maternity carers is an ongoing priority at de Eilanden Maternity Care. Last year, all of our maternity carers took a refresher course in first aid and every year new insights and techniques in the field of breastfeeding are explained during an evening program. Additionally, all of the news in the field of maternity care is discussed each quarter. This is the only way to guarantee quality!
