Bolle BUIK - Leuven
Ok, not sure how I missed this as a option for having your baby if you live in and around Leuven, Belgium. Bolle Buik have a birth house! It's not home, it's not hospital. It is your home away from home! Here is what they are offering:
"If you prefer not to give birth in the hospital, but you don't feel like giving birth at home, you can visit our "Birth and Breakfast" to give birth with a midwife from Bolle Buik. Part of the home of midwife Patty Docx is made available for this purpose. There are three rooms. In the first room there is room to place a bath for during labor and/or childbirth. In the second room there is a double bed where the parents can rest with their baby after the birth. Of course you can also give birth there on the birthing stool, in bed, etc. And then there is the bathroom with walk-in shower, sink and toilet.
The condition for giving birth in the 'Birth and Breakfast' is the same as for a home birth. The pregnancy, labor and delivery should proceed normally.
After giving birth, the brand new family can stay for 24 hours. All meals during their stay are provided."
