Covid 19 FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions:
How many support people can I have with me at Birth ?
We allow Mom to bring 4 people to support her at birth. (Any combination of your Spouse, Partner, Doula, your Mom, your photographer). Clients and Guests will continue to be screened prior to entering our facilities. We are asking that no more than 10 people be in the community room and visitors may be asked to remain in the birth room during the birth. The midwife will direct social distancing of Guests.
What is the Mask Policy ?
We ask that all Clients and Guests wear a mask to the clinic visits. (if needed one will be provided) The birthing Mom isn’t required to wear a mask during labor and birth; all of her support persons do need to wear masks.
I’m planning my birth at New Birth Company. I understand my support people have to wear a Mask at my birth. Why?
On April 13th 2020, the CDC issued new recommendations for healthcare facilities. These new recommendations are focused on what is being termed as “source control” for all individuals regardless of symptoms. These source control measures are intended to reduce the spread of COVID-19 from individuals with the virus but not having any symptoms, in other words, asymptomatic carriers of the virus. The CDC recommends all patients and visitors wear a cloth face covering upon entering the healthcare facility. New Birth Company is making an exception to this recommendation for laboring women, but her support people are required to wear a cloth face covering.
The CDC recommends all healthcare professionals wear a surgical mask the entire time we are in the healthcare facility interacting with clients and other staff members.
