Prenatal/Office Gynecology/Lactation Visits:

LABORING WOMEN: The Birth Center is open as usual for clients in labor with screening to be done during the initial labor call.  We have changed our policy to allow 2 adult support persons, who will also be screened, in addition to a doula if you have arranged for one.

HOME VISITS: We ask that you minimize the risk to our staff by not having any visitors present when the nurse comes.  If anyone in the household is symptomatic, please notify us ahead of time.

ONE WEEK AND SIX WEEK POSTPARTUM VISITS: The one week and six week postpartum follow-up visits will be at The Birth Center as usual

CLASSES, TOURS, MEET AND GREETS: We are temporarily instituting Zoom for classes, tours and meet and greets – this means there will be a live presentation but you will attend via computer or phone. If you are registered for any Birth Center class, you will be contacted with instructions for how to access Zoom.

SUPPORT GROUPS: All support groups (Mom’s groups, breastfeeding support groups, etc.) will be done via Zoom at their regularly scheduled times. We will be sharing a link on Facebook. If you do not have Facebook, e-mail thebirthcenter@thebirthcenter.com to request the Zoom link.

TBC STAFF: To protect our clients, all TBC personnel with the above listed symptoms have been advised not to come to work.  Hand washing remains paramount. While cleaning and sterilization has always been of utmost importance, we have increased our sanitation measures throughout the day.  Toys have been removed from the waiting room and pens at the registration desk are disinfected periodically throughout the day.
