Dear expectant mothers and partners,

We would like to update you on changing corona measures in our practice. Of course, you are free to choose whether you want to follow the new guidelines or would like to stay with the old ones. If you wish to keep to the old guidelines please let us know, so we can accommodate you.

Pregnancy:

  • The intake appointment and birth plan appointment will no longer be done over the phone, but can be done physically.
  • It will be possible again to schedule your own appointments at a date and time that suits you. Additionally, it will be possible to schedule multiple appointments in advance.

Delivery:

  • During the pushing phase of the delivery we will wear a face mask and protective glasses.
  • In the Antonius hospital it is mandatory for everyone to wear a face mask outside of the delivery room.
  • In hospitals it is not allowed to have a third person present during the delivery. Though, during a home birth, a third person is allowed.

Postnatal care

  • We will come by physically during the first week after the delivery. We will consult you on when we will come by physically and when we will speak over the phone.
  • It is possible to do the physically post-control appointments (6 weeks after the delivery) again.
