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

We are carefully monitoring the COVID-19 situation in our area. Official recommendations change daily, so we will update this page as needed.

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.

- We ask that you thoroughly wash your hands as soon as you enter our clinic and use hand sanitizer as needed.

- We have temporarily removed toys from our clinic as they are difficult to individually sanitize.

- Please wear a mask to your appointment. If you prefer not to, we will ask to reduce your appointment time to reduce exposure. We are not asking people to wear masks during labor.

- We have asked clients to limit the number of people brought to appointments.

- We are temporarily shortening our appointments to reduce interactions between clients in our waiting room.

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

- We have a small staff and a private facility which allows us to follow the recommendations for social distancing. We recognize the importance of our individual health and our availability to our clients and so we are not only practicing social distancing in our clinic, but also in our own personal lives. We encourage you and your family to follow these recommendations as well.

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.
