Vrouw Moeder Kind (Woman Mother Child)
Vrouw Moeder Kind-Centrum (Woman Mother Child Center) at Maxima Medical Center Veldhoven is unique within Europe, offering a holistic approach to integrated family -centered care. Our aim is to provide a warm, intimate, and supportive environment throughout pregnancy, labor and delivery, postnatal, neonatal, and pediatric care. We achieve this by incorporating the latest clinical findings with the fundamental understanding that trust and partnership between family and care providers is the cornerstone of healing. From neonates in the NICU to children in our Pediatric Care Unit, we treat your family as if it were our own.
Family connectedness is an integral part of our care program. We know that children heal better with love, support, and attention from both family and their care providers. We are committed to nurturing families and delivering the best, most innovative, and loving care possible.
Our facilities were developed with family in mind. They offer an intimate setting in which to welcome a new baby, or care for an ill child, with all the safety and assurances that come from a modern hospital.
Our Neonatal intensive Care Unit (NICU) located within the center has family suites enabling premature or ill infants to stay with their mothers and care givers during treatment. In these rooms mothers and their newborns receive treatment together while maintaining the crucial bonding process in a private and quiet environment. We achieve this with an integrated monitoring system developed by Philips and implemented in our facility. This breakthrough in technology makes it possible to maintain the intimacy of your new budding family away from the stresses of a conventional centralized NICU.
Our families experience can offer insight:
“Our daughter was born at 30 weeks. She was so tiny, so fragile, and we felt so unprepared, frightened and at a loss. No one ever expects to begin their parenting this way. My first response was to step back out of fear that any touch I might offer might hurt this tiny fragile baby. Within the NICU the staff helped us see ourselves as part of her support team. Helping and guiding us over this fear to truly connect with our daughter. The guidance, the support and kindness we all received touched us and we credit the staff not only with saving our daughters life but helping us realize we were not alone and we were crucial to her recovery.” Juliet from Maine, USA
