OB/GYN: Obstetrics, Gynecology & Nurse Midwifery
COVID-19 and pregnancy
Our team is here to create a safe and welcoming experience for you and your baby. We understand you have many questions and concerns about exposure to COVID-19 during your pregnancy.
We look forward to providing your ultrasound in the safest possible way for you, your baby and our staff. Due to COVID-19, only you and the expert doing the ultrasound (sonographer) can be in the room. This means that your partner cannot be with you during the ultrasound.
We understand this may be hard for you and your partner. But it helps keep you, your baby and our staff safe – our #1 priority.
In addition, we've created FAQs to help answer your questions about pregnancy and breast milk. Please reach out to your provider if you have any additional questions or concerns.
Our providers at Dartmouth-Hitchcock cover every aspect of women's health care. Our obstetricians, nurse-midwives, and nurses are here to support your pregnancy.
