I love the way WA described his daughter: "She's sleeping all the time and just wakes up to eat." Cute.
What a wonderful report by ZDF !

In the Netherlands it is very exceptional to give sedation during deliveries.
The general 'belief' or 'tradition' is that a mom 'should' endure the pain because it would create an unbreakable bond for life. Something like that.

3/4 of all Dutch babies are born at home, by a midwife and eventually the own general doctor. This is the highest rate of home deliveries in the developed world. I don't know why the Netherlands are so different in this.



Princess Máxima could have given birth at home, but she wanted to be ready for all eventualities.

While the Prince left at the front side, the Princess used the emergency entrance at the backside. This time unsuccesful (because a picture was made). The baby was with a nurse or a nanny in the Princess' car. So daddy and mummy drove in separate cars back to the royal estate De Horsten near The Hague, were their private villa is located.

I recently read that the Netherlands has one of the highest rates of baby deaths and childbirth deaths in the European Union. However, that statistic is not related to sedation/non-sedation. But home births could be a contributing factor. Sorry for getting off topic.

Does anyone know when photos of the entire family posing with the new baby might be published?

I think after Amalia and Alexia they posed for pictures at home shortly after the birth.

Indeed, but this statistic is still the lowest rate of deathbirths etc. in the world but is higher when compared with other countries with more hospital deliveries.

Not also that Dutch moms are amongst the eldest in the world ánd that the Dutch have a high rate on twins, triplets, etc. (also in connection with advanced age).

The 'open' flag flying is only three days a year:
- Queen's Day (April 30th) with an orange pennant
- Remembrance Day (May 4th) at halfmast from 18.00 until sundown)
- Liberation Day (May 5th)
- in The Hague only: Princes' Day (3rd Tuesday in September)

On these days there is a lot of flag flying in the streets.
Thank you Henri M.

I was always sure that the answer will be given by you!Thanks to you we can get "fresh impressions" from Netherlands.

The costume is a so-called 'presentation-gown', not to be confused with a baptismal gown.

It is a lace gown first used in 1880 for the presentation of Princess Wilhelmina, the great-great-grandmother of the little baby.

The sik cushion with a lace overlay was first used in 1909 for the presentation of Princess Juliana, the great-grandmother of the little baby.

C-section?

Has P. Maxima not given her first bith under c-section, and the second too?
And was the third child born, by a "normal- birth"?

Sorry IM confused a little bit now...
