COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

We can imagine that you have a lot of questions about the coronavirus. Because this is a new virus, we don’t have all the answers yet. And advices and measures sometimes change due to new insights. We’ll keep you posted and informed as much as we can! We continue to closely follow the advice of the Dutch Institute for Public Health (RIVM) and the Dutch midwife association. Also, we often have consultations with general practitioners and gynecologists. 

This is what you cand do to help prevent the spread of COVID-19:

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds
  • Cough and sneeze on the inside of your elbow 
  • Use paper tissues
  • Don’t shake hands
  • Stay at home with symptoms of the common cold or flu 

Current information states that pregnant women develop the same symptoms if infected with the virus, as women who are not pregnant. At this point, there does not appear to be any increased risk of miscarriage or other complications for women who are infected with COVID-19. 

Should you call us or your GP?

Do you have symptoms of a cold, or a fever of up to 38.0 degrees Celsius?
If so, stay at home, allow the illness to run its course and make sure that you do not infect others. You should therefore distance yourself from other people. You do not need to call your GP. Your symptoms are mild.
Please don’t visit us, but call us on 020-6279767.

Do you have a fever (more than 38 degrees Celsius) and are you coughing or having difficulty breathing?
If so, you should call your GP or the out-of-hours medical centre. Get in touch immediately if you are experiencing severe symptoms. Please don’t visit us, but call us on 020-6279767.
