Our Commitment to Public Safety
Everyone has been affected by this pandemic. As we navigate these new waters, changes in our practice protocols, some of our offerings, and our overall approach to health and safety are shifting. Your Birth Team holds itself to the highest standards of public safety measures and ethical business operations.
What we're doing:
~All the precautions recommended by the CDC and other health agencies are being taken. This includes close monitoring for symptoms, regular temperature checks, limited interaction in public spaces, physical distancing with anyone outside our home, and full PPE use in public and with our clients. We're ordering groceries and skipping events for our safety and yours!
~We do have client requirements at this time: All consultations and many prenatal and postpartum visits take place via Zoom. Birth & Postpartum Doula clients receive in-person visits spaced out to avoid being in multiple homes per day. Clients are required to properly mask when the doula and educator is within sight, even in their homes. This is intimate work done by the doula that does involve bodily fluid contact frequently. The only exception to the mask policy is the actively laboring/birthing client and small children.
~Lactation-only clients are all seen online until further notice.
~Childbirth education clients are all seen online until further notice.
~Car seat-only clients have the option to do virtual or in-person masked visits.
