Restrictions on visitations and appointments in Gynecology and Obstetrics

Restrictions apply until further notice. In unclear situations, please contact the unit stated in your appointment letter for more information.

You can safely attend any scheduled appointments, examinations and procedures even during the COVID-19 epidemic. Please also see the site Instructions for patients  if you have an upcoming appointment.

Using surgical face masks in maternity hospitals

We provide surgical face masks for all expectant mothers coming in to give birth, and their support persons and doulas. Using protective equipment, observing good hand hygiene, keeping safe distances, and limiting movement are measures we use to prevent the spread of coronavirus in hospitals.

As a rule, we recommend that women giving birth and their support persons remain in their own room during and after labor. Furthermore, we ask that you avoid leaving the hospital during your stay.
