Monique, our most experienced midwife, has been nearly 40 years in her profession! She is mother of now grown-up children. Back then she started her own practice, which grew into Midwifery Practice Veldhoven. Arlaine, the girl next door to Midwifery Practice Veldhoven, knew from a very early age that she wanted to work there when she grew up! After a number of years working together pleasantly, in 2016 Monique and Arlaine decided to each go their separate ways, each with their own practice. Practice PUUR was born. Soon Arlaine found two lovely colleagues in friends Malou and Nicole, who graduated at the same time and could start working as midwives right away. While at PUUR each of the still young midwives had the privilege to experience what it is like to become a mother. Arlaine, mother of three, Nicole and Malou both had two children. Speaking about giving birth; In 1987 Monique carried out a very special birth, midwife Janneke was born with Monique’s help! After her internship in 2008, Janneke joined Monique’s practice where she learned a lot. Her big dream was to become a mum; three little boys have provided such enrichment. Group Practice Midwives Veldhoven grew and found in Michelle a young, enthusiastic colleague. Her pleasant chat and passion for her profession make her a joy to have on the team.
With these two, three women strong practices in Veldhoven it was time to join forces and combine all good things of PUUR and Group Practice Midwives Veldhoven into one new practice and since 2017 PUUR – Midwifery Centre exists. We really enjoy working together and the merger made it possible for each of us to develop our expertise. Arlaine became practice manager, Monique is in charge of 20-week ultrasound scans, Nicole advises on contraception and fits coils, Marlou focuses on research and innovation, Janneke takes care of fun ultrasound scans, and Michelle oversees the centering pregnancy.
