Maternity and child health clinic

A strong recommendation for a face mask remains

So far, the use of a face mask is strongly recommended at all social and healthcare service locations for everyone over 12 years of age. The face mask is not required if the person cannot wear it due to health reasons or is under 12 years of age.


Please observe good hand hygiene when entering the clinic. Wash your hands or use hand gloves. Do not come to the clinic if anyone in your family has even mild flu symptoms. In that case, please contact the clinic by phone. We will help you also if you need support and discussion.

Please note that you should not come with a large crowd. Parents, spouses and companions are welcome, and even siblings if you cannot arrange childcare for them during your visit.
