COVID 19 UPDATE 2022

With the increasing positivity cases of Covid in our community, we are asking that ALL CLIENTS attend visits alone, partners will not be permitted in-clinic effective immediately. Please remain in your vehicle until your midwife calls you into the office for your scheduled appointment.

We ask that you wear your mask when your midwife is visiting you for your home visits and that you refrain from entertaining guests during these visits. This helps keep your midwife healthy and able to continue to care for you.
We appreciate the sacrifices everyone is making to help us navigate these difficult times.

Thank you for your co-operation.

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.
