This is how we are practicing social distancing with virtual meetings

The health of our clients, midwives, and the office staff is our top priority. We will be offering phone and virtual visits where appropriate for clients who are unable to attend regular clinic visits. We will still have in-clinic visits also! Not all visits will be done by phone. We will do at least 8 in-person visits unless the client is uncomfortable coming in. We are also available by phone for extra support as needed and hopefully, we can do some virtual visits on top of the 8 clinic visits once we are set up with telemedicine as a secure video source for medical information exchange. We are adopting the WHO prenatal schedule for visits and will adjust as necessary depending on each individual client's needs. We won't be compromising care during this time.

Here's a special message from our midwife Sarah Tichborne

Here's a special message from our midwife Sarah Tichborne. Please practice social distancing to protect our midwives, yourself, and your family. We need our midwives to stay healthy. They are our frontline workers. Please do your part and stay home and stay safe. While it may be disappointing to hear about social distancing, there is a public health reason for these measures. We all need to do our part to help stop or slow down the spread of the COVID-19.

SOGC Statement: Pregnant Health Care Professionals and COVID-19

While we are awaiting further guidance from the Public Health Agency of Canada for health care professionals who are pregnant. We have consulted with our Infectious Disease Committee and, at this time, conclude there is no evidence that women who are pregnant experience more severe symptoms when ill (unlike with H1N1)

The pregnancy outcomes of the reported cases have been largely good, with spontaneous and iatrogenic preterm labour being the most commonly reported adverse pregnancy outcomes. One stillbirth has been reported and this occurred in the only case of severe maternal illness, reported by Liu et al (1). Given the limited data, it is too early to determine if higher rates of adverse outcomes are expected in pregnant women infected with COVID-19. As with SARS and MERS, pregnancy outcomes are likely to be strongly correlated with degree of maternal illness.

That being said, each woman’s circumstances are different: her pregnancy history, her risk of exposure in her workplace and her health status will all influence her level of risk. If you are a health care professional who is pregnant, we urge you to consult your health care provider and with the occupational health and safety department in your workplace to determine how you can best protect yourself. Personal protective equipment and good hygiene practice remain the foundation for maintaining good health. Additional measures may be advisable on a case-by-case basis.
