DOMESTIC VIOLENCE RESOURCES

If you feel that you are experiencing any form of abuse with your partner, whether it's physical, sexual, emotional, there are local options for help. This includes your partner physically hurting you, emotionally manipulating you, making you feel alienated from friends or family, withholding resources from you, or making you take part in sexual activities against your will. Your midwives are available 24/7 to talk about these issues and provide help.

 Statement on COVID-19

Currently, our practice is operating under our normal business hours. We are also abiding by the following protocols:

- We are regularly sanitizing all of our equipment and facility.

- Please wear a mask to your appointment. Healthcare facilities are still requiring masks, regardless of the wider end to mask mandates or vaccination status. We do not require people in labor to wear masks.

- We have asked clients to limit the number of people brought to appointments.  We do not currently limit labor support persons, but review each client's birth plans in detail.

- We are offering optional Telemedicine visits by video chat, when appropriate clinically.

If you or a family member have symptoms, or if you believe you have been exposed, please call us and we will discuss how to get tested and arrange an alternative prenatal visit.
