In our office at Edvard Munchweg 33 it is possible to get medical and not-medical ultrasounds, even when you are not our client.
Our ultrasound operator Mirjam Kelderman works in our office on Mondays. She is a medical trained, highly experienced and certified operator, and will make sure you will get the best pictures possible of your growing child. She uses the most advanced equipment. Mirjam is a.o. associated with SPSAO.

We use a new technology called HD-light (we are the only one in the Nederlands!). HD light is a way to look ‘into’ the uterus with special 3D techniques and to show how the baby looks like at that moment. It looks as you light up the baby with a little flash light from all sides, so you can see it much better and more real life. This technique is not harmful for the baby, just as regular ultrasounds.  You will be amazed what you can see during pregnancy. You may even be able to see the hairs!
You will always recieve nice pictures.

When you choose a non-medical ultrasound you can pay cash. We don’t have an ATM machine.

It is possible to get the next medical ultrasounds:

  • Vitality of the baby

This is an ultrasound to check the location of the pregnancy and to see if there’s a heartbeat. This is not medically needed, so not payed by insurance. There may be circumstances that the pregnancy will be extra stirring or there are medical indications. When that happens we may offer you this ultrasound as a service from our office. If you have no medical indication it is possible to have this ultrasound at your own costs (€35). This ultrasound takes 15 minutes maximum, sometimes it needs less.

  • Calculate your due date

With this scan you can detirmine your due date of your baby! The best period will be 9-12 weeks. It may last 15 minutes, but when the baby will show him/herself well it may be more quick. We will always try to make a nice picture for you!!

for Down’s syndromeThis is a part of prenatal screening. You measure the nuchal translucency  in the AMC hospital. Combined with you’re bloodresults you get a probability calculation for 3 chromosomal aberrations.
Costs : €161

(SEO)This is a medical ultrasound, Structural Ultrasound Exam, in Dutch SEO. Latest results show that you can see organs well from 19 weeks,  so we’ll try to plan your scan at 19 weeks. The purpose of this scan is to search for physical abnormalities. You may think of spina bifida, anencephaly (open skull) or heart   The growth of the baby will be measured and the amniotic fluid. We plan 45 minutes fort his scan, but when the baby is in the right position to see organs well it may last a bit shorter. We plan 45 minutes to have spare time that you baby may change position if nessecary.
Costs : covered by insurance

  • Check the fetal growth

This is not a standard check up, only with medical indication. This check is nessecary when you had a too small baby before. If you have diabetes or when we doubt the growth during regular check ups we like to check the growth extra. We understand that it is nice to see your baby, this check up is not ment fort his. It is prooven that this ultrasouns is less reliable when this is standard. If you like to see your baby, we advice to do an ultrasound for fun during 24-27 weeks.
Costs : covered by insurance

  • Check the position of the baby

Sometimes you have some doubts about the postion of the baby between 34-36 weeks. This will be a good reason to plan this ultrasound. We plan 15 minutes fort his scan. It will be good to know: the baby will be too big to show well on a picture
Costs : covered by insurance

  • Check the location of the placenta

It may happen that the placenta will be low, close tot he cervix at 19-20 weeks. Most of the time i twill be pulled up by the growth of the uterus. We like to check if the placenta is not too low at 28-32 weeks.
Costs : covered by insurance

You are also be able to do an ultrasound for fun:

  • Sex determination (from 14+6 wk)

Some parents like to know the gender before 20 weeks. This is possible from 14+6 weeks!! During this scan you will see the gender (or recieve it on a note) and you will have a nice picture.
Costs : €35

  • Ultrasound from 24 weeks gestation

From 24 weeks you can see the baby so well! We can make a nice picture for you. This is no medical ultrasound, the only purpose is tho show your baby. We will have a look at the face of the baby in 3D and 4D with HD light. This wil give amazing pictures. We plan 30 minutes. Sometimes the position of the baby is not so practical and the photo will be more difficult to make. That is also the reason we advice to do this scan before 27 weeks, fort he best result! After this period the baby may engage and you can’t see the face very well. You’ll be free to plan an ultrasound past 27 weeks, but we keep our fingers crossed 🙂
Costs : €65

My name is Mirjam Kelderman. I have been working as a prenatal diagnostics sonographer for many years. Also, I have trained several midwives and physician assistents in gynecology. My passion is obstetric ultrasound, taking care of the parents and their unborn baby and establishing a great collaboration with the midwives.

Being pregnant is an unique experience for an expecting mother and their loved ones. It is an experience that should be cherished, while creating a safe environment for the unborn child. The midwives of Het Geboorte-atelier and I share a common vision and have been working towards improving antenatal care. In practice this means an intensive collaboration and high-end ultrasound equipment with 3D and 4D capabilities. It’s important that parents are, even during the pregnancy, able to see their son or daughter. That is why all expecting parents get to take home multiple photographs and, if possible, even a 3D photograph in color or in black and white.

Feel free to bring parents or children to the ultrasound appointment. If, however, there is something that requires special attention, we would like to talk to the parents alone. Friends and family are then kindly asked to wait in the waiting room.

The midwives of The Geboorte-atelier and I would love to meet you at the Edward munchweg 33.
