As the physicians, certified nurse-midwives (CNM), and certified midwives (CM) who care for patients and their families, we see firsthand the stress and uncertainty facing pregnant women, parents, and their support networks during the COVID-19 pandemic. We are listening to our patients and share their concerns about the impact of this pandemic on their intended plans for labor and birth. We stand in solidarity with our patients and are committed to working tirelessly to deliver evidence-based, respectful, and patient-centered care for our patients and their families during this time.
Amid the significant strain on the health care system, our entire maternity care team is committed to making sure laboring patients get the support they need to birth confidently, safely, and respectfully. Our providers are carefully adjusting, and our office is committed to continuing to add layers of protection every single day.
- Hospitals and birth centers that are both licensed and accredited remain safe places to give birth in the United States.
- Effective communication is essential in this time of increased stress and uncertainty, and we encourage pregnant patients to stay with the health care professionals who have been providing their care and talk with their physician or midwife about their concerns regarding labor support and safe birth care.
- Physicians, certified nurse-midwives, certified midwives, and the entire health care team will work to ensure that precautions are taken to make labor and delivery as safe as possible for their patients.
At Celebration Obstetrics and Gynecology, patient safety and wellbeing are of paramount importance.
