Information for Expectant Mothers and Support Persons
Because of the precautions necessary during the COVID-19 pandemic, and for the safety of mother and baby, we need to limit the entry and exit to the Birthing Suite. Once mother and your support partner have come into the unit, neither will be able to leave then unit and then return. So please be sure to bring all the items BOTH of you will need for the entire stay before you enter. This may include toiletries, the support person's medications, snacks, clothes, and the car seat you will need when you head home. Support partners will not be able to leave the OB unit and then re-enter. Thank you for your understanding as we work to provide the best care possible for your entire family. Please see our COVID-19 page for more information.
