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. Read the current measures in practice.

This is what you can 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
  • Wear a non-surgical face masks in our practice.
  • Stay at home with symptoms of the common cold or flu and get tested!

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. 

Do you have symptoms of a cold?
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.
Get tested!
– If you are> 37 weeks pregnant, let us arrange a test for you so that we have the result faster.
– You do not need to call your GP. Your symptoms are mild.

Do you have a cold and are you short of breath?
You should call your GP or the out-of-hours medical centre. Get in touch immediately if you are experiencing severe symptoms.
