(Open)(Close)I chose the standard family room/large family room/upgrade on the personal details form. Am I guaranteed this on admission?
Availability is only known upon time of admission. If you have several requests, please prioritise these.
(Open)(Close)Is an accompanying person permitted at pregnancy check-ups?
An accompanying person is actually not permitted at pregnancy check-ups.
Accompanying persons are permitted for prenatal diagnostics, birth planning and pre-approved exceptional circumstances.
(Open)(Close)Is an accompanying person permitted for the birth?
Yes, an accompanying person is permitted for the birth – as long as they don’t have any COVID-19 symptoms. The birth partner can only stay with the pregnant mother once labour has actually started. They may also provide support when contractions start.
When determining if the birth is actually starting or if waters have broken, the birth partner will wait in the maternity clinic lounge.
For induction of labour, the birth partner may only enter the room once contractions start and the birth begins.
(Open)(Close)Who is allowed to visit during a postnatal hospital stay?
Partners and the newborn’s siblings are currently allowed to visit, as long as they show no symptoms of a cold and/or fever.
(Open)(Close)Can siblings also stay overnight in the family room?
The family room is only available to the new mother, the newborn and the father. There is no childcare available for siblings.
(Open)(Close)Do I need to fill out the anaesthesia form even though I’m planning to have a natural birth?
Yes. Our anaesthesia team can manage your pain more quickly and effectively, if you request this.
(Open)(Close)Are newborn photoshoots still taking place despite coronavirus?
Yes, the photoshoots are taking place in compliance with the protective measures.
