Our team at Women’s Care wants to help you stay informed about the Coronavirus that causes COVID-19. This is a very dynamic situation, so we will update our social media and website with changes when they occur. It’s incredibly important to us that our patients and unborn babies stay healthy and happy. We will also be here for you if you do get sick.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO PREVENT GETTING SICK?
The Centers for Disease Control have great advice. Click here for prevention measures. We all have a role to play in the community to keep everyone healthy. The most effective way to help our community to stay safe is to stay up to date on all of your vaccinations. You are updated on all of your vaccines if you have received the first round of vaccines as well as the most current booster. If you recently had Covid, it is recommended that you still get your boosters but may consider delaying your next recommended vaccine 3 months from the onset of your first symptoms. The CDC continues to update its guidance on vaccines. For the latest information, visit here.
PREGNANCY AND THE VACCINE
The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), one of the world’s most renowned organizations representing OB/GYN physicians, recommends that all pregnant people get the vaccine and booster to protect against Covid-19. Evidence continues to show that the vaccine is safe for those who are pregnant with new studies confirming that it is even more important for those who are pregnant to get vaccinated to protect their pregnancy. Studies show that the vaccine is equally effective in both pregnant and non-pregnant people. No evidence suggests that the Covid-19 vaccine causes maternal effects. Learn more about the safety of the vaccine and pregnancy on ACOG’s website.

- Come to your appointment alone. No visitors allowed. Please understand this is for the health and safety of our patients and their unborn babies.

- If you are a pregnant patient of ours and have a fever over 100.4 and a cough, please call us BEFORE your appointment. If you arrive to the office with a fever and a cough, you will be directed by signs on the front door to call a specific number to be connected directly to a triage nurse who can best coordinate your care.
- Please take your temperature before you call. That allows us to care for your concerns most accurately.
- Please know we are taking all sanitization precautions for your protection.
- If you have an emergent visit, without a fever, and you are having respiratory issues, we ask that you put on a mask.
