Measures to contain the corona virus

Due to coronavirus the Bevalcentrum West takes extra precautions:

  • In addition to the partner, of course, you can bring one extra person. Also your own midwife and a maternity nurse will be present during the delivery.
  • Visitors are not welcome during or after the birth. Our familyroom is closed.
  • The restaurant at the entrance hall of the hospital is closed.
  • Tours in the birth centre will not continue until further notice.

For more information you can also visit the website of the OLVG.

Giving birth safely in the BCW

Pregnant women who are infected with or suspected of being infected with the COVID-19 virus cannot currently give birth at the Bevalcentrum West. This also applies if the partner is infected or suspect. In this case your midwive will contact the OLVG Hospital. In this way we keep the Bevalcentrum West, which is located in OLVG West, free from COVID-19.
If, for whatever reason, you prefer not to give birth at home, please know that it is safe to come to us at the Bevalcentrum West. You can discuss this with your midwive.
