By coughing and sneezing, a person transmits the virus through his nose, throat or lungs. The virus gets into the air through small droplets. If other people inhale these droplets or transfer them via their hands in their mouth, nose or eyes, for example, they can become infected with the virus.
What you can do to prevent the spread of COVID-19:
* From June 26, many Corona measures will change.
Because many pregnant women are not (yet) vaccinated, we still have to be very careful.
In this way we can ensure that we remain careful for all pregnant women during this last phase. Thank you!
Vaccination during pregnancy
Pregnant women are more likely to become seriously ill from the corona virus than non-pregnant women. Pregnant women with an underlying disease (such as diabetes or heart and lung disease) are especially at higher risk. Therefore, the advice until now has been to only vaccinate pregnant women with underlying diseases. We now know that 90,000 pregnant women in the United States have been vaccinated with the mRNA vaccines from Pfizer-BioNtech and Moderna. No serious side effects have been reported. From now on, all pregnant women are therefore advised - if they are called upon to do so - to be vaccinated, preferably with an mRNA vaccine. You can read more information on the RIVM website
Protection of baby after mother vaccination
Newborn babies are protected against infectious diseases by the antibodies they receive from their mothers through the placenta. These antibodies slowly disappear in the months after birth. We do not yet know whether this is also the case for the antibodies after corona vaccination, but that seems plausible.
Fertility, IVF Treatment and Vaccination
Vaccination does not affect fertility and placental formation. This is evident from the studies (so-called toxicity studies) that have been carried out by all vaccine manufacturers.
Breastfeeding and vaccination
There is no evidence that the vaccine passes into breast milk and can reach the child through breast milk.
No effect on the pill or other contraceptives
Vaccines do not affect the effectiveness of the pill or other contraceptives. And conversely, the pill or other contraceptives do not affect the effectiveness of the vaccine.
Yet we still have to be very careful and we don't know what the future will bring us. We therefore still ask you urgently: come ALONE to your appointments as much as possible. Also don't bring your kids.
Partners are welcome at ultrasounds and important appointments.
Our practice locations are normally open for office hours for the necessary pregnancy checks.
Emergency and delivery care will of course continue, so just call us if you have any questions or complaints. The midwife is always there for you and will work with you to assess whether an extra check-up is necessary.
You can still ALWAYS call with questions or concerns!

We hope this has given you enough information about the strict measures. You can always call the office or give us an email with question(s). Thank you again for understanding the measures that we all need to take to minimize the spread of the corona virus.
