Fun ultrasounds are possible again!
To the delight of many of us, a whole series of measures have been relaxed again. Unfortunately, not all measures have been, but we are happy to be able to offer fun ultrasounds again! We would like to thank you for your understanding reactions over the past weeks.
What is important is that general advice remains valid:
- Wash hands regularly, keep 1.5 m distance
- Workplaces are ventilated
- In case of complaints, stay at home and get tested, observe the new quarantine regulations
- Come to the practice alone or with only your own partner (unfortunately no children, other relatives or friends are allowed)
- Mouth masks at the practice are mandatory
Advice remains to get vaccinated during pregnancy
The Pfizer and Moderna vaccines are mRNA vaccines. Based on the research data and the effects of these vaccines, there are no reasons to assume that these vaccines would be harmful if used during pregnancy. No special adverse reactions in pregnant women were observed at the Lareb (Landelijke Registratie Evaluatie Bijwerkingen). This is in line with reports from abroad. Therefore, the advice to all pregnant women is to get vaccinated. For more information, please visit our website.
Vaccinating during the breastfeeding period
Breast-feeding women can also be vaccinated. The vaccine is not likely to get into the breast milk.
Work and COVID
The advice for pregnant women is still valid: from 28 weeks onwards, they should not carry out any activities in which the 1.5 m distance cannot be guaranteed. For pregnant women working in health care institutions, it applies that they may no longer perform COVID-19 care from 28 weeks. See: https://lci.rivm.nl/zwangerschap-werk-en-covid-19.
Furthermore, keep an eye on the websites of the hospitals for the current rules.
You can call us at any time if you have any questions. We will be delighted to help you with any questions you may have.
