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've created FAQs and a video to help answer your questions about pregnancy and breast milk. Please reach out to your provider if you have any additional questions or concerns.
Having a baby is a special experience and journey for which we provide compassionate care, information and support. Our Nurse-Midwife Service has provided care to women and their families since 1983. Our midwives are experts at pregnancy and childbirth. We work with couples to transition into becoming a family and our guiding principle is that birth is a normal process.
