If you are concerned, take a look at this Question and Answer page, or call your midwife or doctor.

For information about the Covid-19 vaccine in pregnancy and while breastfeeding, take a look at the RANZCOG website.

We will no longer have visitor restrictions, it is important that we take every step possible to make sure you and your whānau are safe. We can do this by:

  • Making sure to stay home if you are unwell, or calling ahead of your appointment.
  • Washing your hands often.
  • Keeping a note of where you've been to help with contact tracing.
