To our clients,
Sages-femmes Temiskaming Midwives is taking the COVID-19 situation very seriously and we remain committed to providing you with the best care we can while keeping you safe. We are asking for your cooperation and patience as we implement changes to the way we normally do things.
A Reduced Appointment Schedule
Following the recommendations from the Association of Ontario Midwives and the World Health Organization, we have adopted a slightly reduced antenatal visit schedule, with options for virtual visits. These changes are aimed at reducing your risk of exposure to COVID-19 and will be adjusted as needed for individual cases to ensure you receive the care you and your baby need.
Mask wearing is a requirement for all in-person appointments, including home appointments. For these appointments, we ask that you:
Please come alone (with your newborn in the postpartum).
Wait in your car until your scheduled appointment time. Your midwife will make arrangements with you to let you in.
Wash your hands immediately upon entering the clinic.
We are doing our very best to keep everyone in our community healthy. Thank you for doing your part!
Kim, Paule and Vanessa
