The Cocon

We also accompany childbirth in the Cocon in the Erasme hospital in Anderlecht. The Cocon is a unit led by midwives where women can give birth. To be allowed to deliver here you have to meet the conditions to deliver at home. This means that women have to have a normal pregnancy and birth. If a complication would occur, women will be referred to the gynaecologist and give birth in the delivery ward of the hospital. This is eventually also possible with one of the midwives of Zwanger in Brussel, but it depends on the situation and we can discuss it at the moment.

The Cocon offers women a middle way in between giving birth at home and giving birth in the hospital. It makes it possible to deliver naturally in the hospital!  Also read: Birth.
