For your safety and to help minimize the spread of the coronavirus, we’re reducing the number of in-person appointments at our medical offices and hospitals. This means some of your prenatal appointments may be changed to virtual visits where you’ll talk with your provider over the phone or video.
Here’s what you can expect:
- Your provider will let you know when you should come in for an in-person visit and when it’s appropriate to do a virtual visit. It’s important to follow advice when you’re told you need to be seen in person.
- Group care appointments have been changed to individual or virtual group visits.
- Your provider may ask you to take additional steps to monitor yourself at home, such as checking your weight or blood pressure.
- Your provider will give you guidance on symptoms that you should come in for immediately.
Your prenatal appointments are an important part of your care during pregnancy, and we’ll continue to safely deliver that care as we respond to this crisis.
