My name is Maria Burgers

As a child I always wanted to work as a nurse in developing countries.

Maternity care from an independent maternity care nurse is unique!

Fun & experience

As a child I wanted to become a nurse in developing countries. That is why I went to the Middle and Higher Professional Training for nurses. Everything about breastfeeding I have always found the most fascinating of all I have done and so I ended up working as a self-employed nurse in maternity care from 1999 onwards. In this setting I have the perfect time and opportunity to assist the brand new mother and her child with breastfeeding. In the vast majority of cases I see that mother and child are able to enjoy this independently by the end of the maternity period.
Furthermore, it is always a wonderful challenge for me to provide a family with a pleasant and relaxed maternity care time. I work with great pleasure.

Quality register and complaints procedure

I am registered in the quality register of the Knowledge Center Maternity Care (KcKz). This quality register sets strict requirements in the field of further training and professional competence.
From 01-01-2016, the Wkkgz is effective: this law requires that every healthcare provider has an independent Complaints Officer for the informal handling of client complaints.
As a self-employed person in healthcare, I am affiliated with the SoloPartners complaints procedure. This complaints procedure provides for a Complaints Officer and a Complaints Committee.

Planning is a flexible concept in my work. I plan a maternity care period around every two weeks. The chance of overlap with the following care has therefore proved to be limited in most cases. If some of the maternity care periods overlap, I will work a little more during that week.

I work as an independent maternity care nurse, but also have a good cooperation with several other independent maternity nurses in the region.
