Measures to prevent the spread of novel coronavirus COVID-19

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:

  • Wash your hands with soap regularly.
  • Keep a distance of 1.5 meter of eachother
  • Cough and sneeze on the inside of your elbow.
  • Use paper tissues
  • Stay at home with symptoms of the common cold or flu
  • Limit social contacts

Coronavirus  (COVID 19)

*Update Coronavirus*    

June 2021

* From June 26, many Corona measures will change.

Because many pregnant women are not (yet) vaccinated, we still have to be very careful.

  • Therefore, the midwives will still wear a mouth cap and we ask you to do this yourself.
  • We ask you to come alone as much as possible, but of course your partner is also very welcome if you want, during appointments and ultrasounds.
  • For children we would like to ask you not to bring them to the midwifery centre yet (if there is no other option, consult us).

In this way we can ensure that we remain careful for all pregnant women during this last phase. Thank you!

 

VACCINATIONS: RIVM changes advice: all pregnant women can get vaccinated with Moderna and Pfizer!

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.

  

Pregnancy

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.

Important:

  • DON'T COME WITH A FEVER OR A COLD! Call us well before your appointment and consult with the assistant if you can safely come to your appointment
  • POSITIVE FOR CORONA? Are you or a roommate tested positive for the Coronavirus CALL US as soon as you have received  a positive test-result. Whether or not you have recently had an appointment with us, we just want to know!  (tel. number assistant: 040-2419841)
  • MOUTH MASK is advised
  • MOUTH MASK by the midwife :The midwives will also wear mouth caps during consultation hours, maternity visits and deliveries.
  • Come ALONE to regular appointments! For ultrasounds and important appointments, your partner is also welcome. Don't  take kids to the appointments either. We understand that this is annoying, but we need to prevent healthcare professionals from seeing a lot of people unnecessarily.
  • CONTRACEPTION/IUD PLACEMENT : as normal
  • PRETECHO /  FUN Ultrasound : as normal, you can bring 1 other person.

 

Childbirth

  • FEVER/COUGH/TESTED POSITIVE?  If you call us for labour, always mention if you have any  complaints,  fever or proven  Covid-positive. Measure your temperature before you call, we than will decide if we need protective clothing. This also applies to your partner!
  • MOUTH MASK: The midwife will wear a mouth mask during your delivery. If  you or your partner have (mild) complaints, wearing a mouth mask is necessary.

 

Urgency

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!

Here is a list of events in which you have to call us: 

06-107 209 08 (team Pink)      or      06 301 551 21 (team Blue):
