Where can I give birth?
If everything is proceeding normally in your pregnancy, and you have not been classed as 'high risk', you can decide to give birth:
- in hospital
- at home
- in water, either in a hospital that can offer this, or at home (you can rent birth pools through some midwives)
- in a birth centre
Birth centres in Belgium
There are currently no birth centres in Brussels, and it is not always easy to find up-to-date lists of birth centres in Wallonia and Flanders.
An independent midwife would be a good point of contact if you wish to find out about the nearest birth centre to you.
