    Coronavirus update July 8th

    Dear client and partner,

    The national organization of midwives (KNOV) has issued strict regulations for obstetric care during the corona crisis. Every midwifery practice in the Netherlands is bound to these regulations.  
    After every new advice from the government the situation is reevaluated and things can change. So please check our website (news) and social media (Facebook: Midwifery Practice Eindhoven), so that you stay informed about the latest developments.

    Consultation hour
    All appointments are done again face to face. If you are more comfortable with an appointment by phone, then please let us know. 

    If you have an appointment one of the following weeks, we ask you the following:
    -Don't come to the appointment too early, maximum 5 minutes in advance. This way we can limit the amount of people in the waiting room.
    -Desinfect or wash your hands when you enter the health center.
    -In principle, partners are welcome again during appointments. We ask you to do this wisely. 
    -As a partner coming to the appointment, try to respect the 1,5 meter distance to us.  
    -Do you have a cold, are you coughing or do you have a fever, then give us a call so that we can see together if your appointment can be postponed.

    It is possible again to make an appointment for a fun-ultrasound. 
    The placement of an IUD is also possible.  
    Blood withdrawal at Diagnostiek voor U can only be done by appointment (040-2141202) and only at one of the main locations.
    During hospital appointments your are still being asked to come alone as much as possible.  

    Delivery
    The choice for a delivery at home or in the hospital was there the whole time. We didn't experience any capacity problems at the hospitals and it has always been safe for you to go there.
    At home as well as in the hospital 2 persons are welcome to support you (your partner + 1 extra person). 
    If you have to stay in the hospital longer after birth, then the rules of the hospital apply regarding visitors.  
    Do you or your partner have a cold, are you coughing or do you have a fever at the moment the delivery starts? Please tell us in time so we can take our precautions.

    Postpartum period
    We are doing our postpartum visits as usual.  
     
    The maternity care organizations ask you to have visitors as little as possible during the hours the maternity assistant is in your house. 
    The heel prick (blood test) and hearing test of your child will be done as usual. 
    Do you or your partner have a cold, are you coughing or do you have a fever in the first week after birth? Please tell us and your maternity care organization.

    In general
    The same advice applies to pregnant women as to non-pregnant women. So keep an eye on the news and follow the general guidelines of the RIVM (
    www.rivm.nl also in English).

    All midwifery practices in our region are doing their very best to keep the chance of contamination and spreading of the virus as small as possible. We have agreed to help each other in case midwives get sick.

    We realize that we have asked a lot of you the last few months. All measures were taken to keep everybody as healthy as possible. But it was not the way we would have liked to guide you through this special period in your life.
    We want to thank you for your understanding and the support we have already received from you. Together we hope that this crisis will pass soon.
    We will stay cautious; in case of new outbreaks we might be forced to reinstate certain regulations. 

    Of course, as always, you can reach us 24/7. Don’t hesitate to call us with your questions and worries. We will always see you or visit you if necessary.

    Vaccination against whooping cough (the '22-week vaccination')

    As of December 16th all pregnant women are offered a vaccination against whooping cough at 22 weeks pregnancy. As a result of this vaccination baby's are protected against whooping cough from the moment they are born. 

    In Eindhoven the vaccination is offered by Zuidzorg. On their website you can read how to get the vaccination. 

    New: IUD at Midwifery Practice Eindhoven

    Starting from June 2019 it is possible to have an intra-uterine device (birthcontrol) placed at Midwifery Practice Eindhoven. We take care of the prescription, placing of the IUD and the check-up by ultrasound. Everybody is welcome, also if you are not a former client of ours.
    Feel free to contact us for more information. 

    Whooping cough vaccination for pregnant women

    (30-03-2018)
    Whooping cough (pertussis) can be a serious illness for young babies. To protect young babies against whooping cough, pregnant women can have themselves vaccinated. In 2015 the Health Council advised vaccination of pregnant women against whooping cough, but this has not been implemented yet. However, we have started already to actively inform clients about the possibility of the vaccination. You can get the vaccin through your GP of through the GGD (Municipal Health Service).

    This waitingroom gives more privacy and older children can not reach the stairs so easily.
