The maternity care hours are spread over eight maternity days. You can schedule these hours with your maternity carer daily between 8:00 am and 6:00 pm. Of course, there is a maternity carer available 24/7 for assisting in childbirth. It doesn't matter if you (partly) spend your maternity period in the maternity hotel or maternity centre; the number of maternity care hours remains the same.
Some health insurers reimburse only a limited number of maternity care hours. If you want to extend your maternity care period, you can do so at your own cost. Your maternity care consultant will inform you about the possibilities!
