Henny Vlak

I'm Henny Vlak. At the end of 1996 I graduated as a midwife. I did my education in London. Before I started working on the Maashaven, I worked in various midwifery practices in the Netherlands and I worked in Africa.

For me, midwife is the best profession there is. One of the nice things about our practice is that women come from various cultures. You can learn something from everyone. I hope you feel at home in our practice.
