Information about Coronavirus for our foreign clients

A lot is being asked of our employees at the moment. We have a social obligation not to become infected and to make sure we don’t put others at risk. Therefore, we have decided to take the following precautions.

Can I just receive maternity visits?

For maternity there is no maximum persons per day. Agreements can be made about this together with the maternity nurse.

Visit maternity hotel

The partner and 2 adult visitors are welcome at the same time in the maternity hotel. In total, a maximum of 4 children under the age of 13 may be present with the partner and the visitors (maximum 2 children per adult), if desired. Visitors and children are welcome until 9 pm. There is no longer a maximum number of visitors per day. Partner, brother / sister and visitors are of course not allowed to have Corona-related complaints.

Presence partus maternity hotel

In the delivery department and the birth rooms of the maternity hotel, a maximum of 2 supervisors may be present. After the partus, 2 visitors are welcome.

ETZ face mask policy

Mouth/nose masks are maintained if work is carried out within 1.5 meters of the client /patient.

For all parts of Fam, it is free to:

  • wear a nose/mouth mask if she/he wishes to do so
  • may require attention to keep a distance of 1.5 meters

Living room and brasserie ETZ

The living room and brasserie in the ETZ are open again.

Personnel at work

Good to know: Lunavi Maternity Care will still deliver the same high quality standard of care as before. We are - and always have been - very aware of maintaining a good standard of hygiene. We are in close contact with the RIVM and GGD and follow the RIVM advice given to the Dutch government on prevention and control of  infectious diseases. We immediately inform our clients and employees when guidelines change or when special measures (on a national or regional level) are being taken.
If a Lunavi employee has been in a high risk area, or in touch with someone (suspected of) this virus infection or displaying symptoms herself, she will not be scheduled to provide care until it is safe again. Due to this, it is possible that in some regions policies for peak times may have to be implemented because of staff shortages. Should this be applicable, all the available maternity nurses will be evenly spreaded among all care recipients. We will also ask you whether you have been in contact with anyone with a fever, respiratory symptoms and/or have tested positive for this virus.


The maternity care consultant will return to your home for the intake interview. We still advise to keep the 1,5 meters away to reduce the risks as much as possible (a mouth nose mask must be worn within 1.5 meters, a surgical mouth nose mask at least type IIR is recommended). A telephone triage is performed prior to a home visit. In case of (suspicion of) Covid-19) in a family, a maternity care consultant with corona or possibly. capacity problems, the intake is carried out via video calling.

Tips to prevent contamination 

  • Wash your hands regularly with soap for at least 20 seconds or use an alcohol-based handsanitiser.
  • When coughing and sneezing, cover your mouth with your flexed elbow or use a tissue.
  • Keep at least a 1,5 meter distance when other people are coughing or sneezing
  • Do not shake hands and do not kiss. Inconvenient situations will occur because people want to congratulate you on the birth of your baby! Our maternity nurse will also not shake hands to say hello or goodbye.

Midwives have also made agreements to reduce the risk to become infected or spread the virus. For the adjustments of your own midwifery practice, it is best to contact your midwife.
