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. Some things are essential for us all to implement to ensure we all stay healthy.
To continue to care for you, others who are expecting and their partners, we all must commit to limiting our exposure. As your doula, I oversee and implement the recommended precautions set forth by the CDC, WHO, and Federal and Local Governments. It is important to me to continue to practice safely and I appreciate your help in doing so.
To work together, you must do 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. Many folks, including myself, have family members who are elderly and immune-compromised.
Communication and transparency are essential. If you feel you have increased exposure, please communicate that with me, and we can plan accordingly.
All require masks at our prenatal appointments, anyone who will be in the home except for children under 2.
If you are traveling or have traveled, I ask that we wait two weeks to allow for self-quarantine before meeting for appointments. If your birth happens within that window, support will continue virtually.
I cannot attend a birth with anyone who is actively sick or who has been ill in the last two weeks.
If you or anyone in your family has symptoms of COVID-19 should get tested by your PCP. Until you receive a negative test result, I will be unable to provide support.
If you were to have a positive test result, I would be able to provide virtual support moving forward.
If you have questions about this policy or are unclear on anything stated above, please ask! I am all for clear and open communication.
