Update coronavirus midwiferypractice Linde, 04-06-2021

 

Following the decreasing number of infections we have decided to let go of some of the measures in the practice.

These will take effect immediately

 

What will change:

- The intake will take place at the practice. Your partner is welcome to join you.

- Partners are allowed to attend you at all ultrasounds, this includes the 35-week ultrasound and birth talk.

- At all other, regular check-ups you are supposed to come alone. You are unfortunately not allowed to bring other children. This is to prevent that the waiting room(s) will get to crowded and to make sure everyone can keep a safe distance from each other.

-

What will remain:

- In the first week after your baby is born, we will do two home visits. On other days we will call you. If medically necessary it is of course possible to do more visits.

- During all checkups (prenatal visits, birth and postnatal home visits) we wear a nose mouth mask. With some checkups we will also use gloves.

- We ask you (and if present your partner) to wear a nose mouth mask during your visit at the practice. A non-medical nose mouth mask is allowed.

- The check-ups in your pregnancy will all be at the practice, we are following the regular check-up scheme.

- In the first week after your baby is born, we will do two home visits. On other days we will call you. If medically necessary it is of course possible to do more visits.

 

- After entering the practice disinfect your hands at the disinfection device or wash your hands at the toilet.

- Keep 1,5 meter distance as much as possible in the waiting room and during the appointments.

- Stay aware of any symptoms like, coughing, sneezing, difficulty breathing and/or fever. If you have any of these symptoms, get tested and call us. Do not come to the practice! We will determine what the possibilities regarding your appointment are.

- In case a home visit is necessary, please inform us if any of your family members have above mentioned symptoms!

 

We are happy to be making a step forward by releasing some of the measures. We can understand that the measures that are still valid might be inconvenient for you. But for your and our health and safety, we ask you to stick to the above-mentioned as much as you can. We hope for your understanding.

 

The hospitals in our region (MMC Veldhoven & Catharinaziekenhuis Eindhoven) have the following policy:

- If you have an appointment at the hospital, you have to go alone.

- Your partner is welcome at the 20 weeks scan.

- From now on you’re allowed to bring 2 persons to accompany you during birth.

- Waterbirths are allowed, as long as you don’t have any corona related symptoms.

- Older brothers and sisters are allowed to visit you (max 1 hour, in consultation with the nurses). It is unfortunately not possible to receive other visitors.

 

As soon as there are new guidelines to be mentioned we will inform you immediately.

 

Kind regards,

Team Linde
