The corona virus: what does it mean for you and your pregnancy?

The corona virus (COVID-19) has a major impact on everyone. Especially now that the government has called for social distancing. What does this mean if you are pregnant or have just given birth?

This is a difficult and uncertain time, especially if you are pregnant. Your midwife will do everything to guide this special period in your life and that of your partner in the best way. We are trained to assess risk and medical necessity and will continue to discuss with you what care you need.

All midwives do their utmost to minimize the chance of infection and spread of the corona virus. That is why we will work in a different way. This means: more telephone appointments and fewer checks in practice if these are not necessary.

Below you can read more about how we will work in the coming period and what measures we have taken to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. 

We wish everyone a lot of strength and hope for your understanding and cooperation to prevent the spread of the Corona virus.
