Disclosure of your personal data to third parties
The midwives of Uniek Geboortezorg are obliged to handle your personal data confidentially. For example, the midwife needs your explicit consent to disclose your personal data. However, there are some exceptions to this rule. The confidentiality of the midwife can be breached on the basis of a legal provision, as well as when there is reason to fear serious harm to your health or that of a third party. In addition, recorded data may be orally, in writing, or digitally exchanged with other care providers (for example, when transferring to the hospital or the pharmacist who processes a prescription and thus receives data).

Transfer of your file
If you switch to another midwifery practice due to, for example, a move or other reason, it is important that your new midwife is aware of your medical history and the course of the pregnancy(ies) and any previous delivery(ies). This information is in your medical file. It is customary for us to transfer your medical file to the new midwifery practice. We will always ask for your permission for this, by signing a consent form.
