Beatrijs van der Hout is medical engineer in the Fundamental Perinatology research group of Prof. Guid Oei. The research aims at reducing maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality rates through mathematical modeling & simulation, simulation-based education, and electrophysiological pregnancy monitoring. This research is part of research area Perinatal Medicine of Eindhoven MedTech Innovation Center (e/MTIC).

Childbirth is still one of the most dangerous journeys in life. By working on non-obtrusive perinatal innovations, I would like to contribute to a positive family-centered childbirth experience and improved perinatal outcome, regardless of place of birth.
