For Current Clients

Important information regarding how we are providing care under the Covid 19 Precautions 

We have had to make changes to the way we provide care to keep ourselves and our community as safe as possible.  Please know that our Facebook page is the most current and up to date place to get information.  As of March 24th, here are important things to know.

1) If you are ill, please don’t come to the clinic. Call the clinic and we will reschedule your appointment.
2) we are doing essential clinical visits only at this time. Your midwife will call you to discuss rescheduling your appointment to a later time if it is clinically appropriate.  Some visits can be done over the phone. 
3) we are conducting prenatal conversations and education and CV 19 screening over the phone. Expect a call from your midwife to chat about your questions and upcoming tests etc in advance of your clinic visit. This will keep in person clinic visits brief (approx 10 min or less) for checking your blood pressure, listening to the baby and measuring your growth.
3) please wait in your car when you arrive at the clinic for your appointment. Call the office at 705-446-2511 and let our administrator know you've arrived. You'll be asked a few questions for screening before entering the clinic. Then your midwife will come out to your car to take your temperature, before bringing you into the clinic space
4) Wash or sanitize your hands upon entering the clinic. Please avoid touching surfaces unless necessary
5) Please do not bring any extra people to your appointment.
This includes children. We are sorry for any inconvenience this causes.
6) we are minimizing home visits at this time to reduce midwives exposure and keep us healthy and able to continue providing care. You may be asked to come to our clinic for assessments and postpartum visits. We will reassess this strategy on an ongoing basis as we appreciate that postpartum home visits are of great value to our clients. We apologize for this necessary change to our practice.

As always, we are sanitizing rooms between clients. We are stepping up sanitization of doorknobs, seating and other surfaces. We have masks (if required) and hand sanitizer available upon entering the clinic, while supplies last.

Home births are still available as long as everyone in your household is well and screens negative for symptoms of CV 19.

Important changes to hospital visiting/support persons policy:
Starting Monday March 16th, only 1 support person or visitor will be permitted on the OB/Birthing floor at CMGH. In addition, we request as always clients page their team midwife before presenting at the hospital as initial Covid 19 screening needs to be done over the phone before you arrive. If you require a caesarian section at CGMH, please be aware that support people are not currently permitted in the operating room. Your midwife will be present to support you and your baby. Babies are not currently permitted to come to recovery with parents.

Thank you for your understanding and co-operation. Please contact the clinic if you have any questions.
