COVID-19 Policy

As we navigate these uncertain times, living amongst a pandemic, I am so grateful that I can still show up for you in this work. I am so glad we know ways to protect ourselves and to have a safe, healthy pregnancy. I continue to protect myself using the current evidence and recommendations.  To work together, you must commit to doing the same as we will be sharing space, and I will be coming into your home. While it may feel nonessential for some because they don’t fall into the category of high risk, that is not the case for everyone in the community I share space with.

As of July 2021, it is clear that the COVID vaccine does not eliminate those with the vaccines from spreading the virus.  Therefore,  I do not care to know ANY person’s vaccine status and it is not necessary in order for us to work together especially as we do not know the safety of the vaccine for pregnancy.  It is confidential and irrelevant to my support.

I will continue to wear masks at our prenatal appointments.  I respect personal choices and therefore do not mandate anyone wear a mask.   I will continue to wear a mask at prenatal appointments, labor, birth, and postpartum support which I feel is the best thing for me to protect my clients, babies, and my family and friends as it’s the only sure way to minimize spreading COVID. 

Special Notes
I cannot provide support for anyone who is actively sick, with symptoms of COVID, or who has been exposed to someone with COVID.  If it is questionable, it would be necessary to provide a negative test result or we would move forward in virtual support.
If you have traveled by airplane, I request a quarantine period before we share space either in prenatal appointments or labor/birth/postpartum support for 3-5 days*.  

If you have questions about this policy or are unclear on anything stated above, please ask!
I am all for clear and open communication.

Stay well!
