For patients we are following the Commonwealth of Massachusetts guidelines and recommendations for travel in regards to quarantining and/or a negative PCR COVID test.
All patients receive a questionnaire and/or are asked questions regarding travel prior to their visit. On completion of the questionnaire you may be instructed to call the office if you have traveled. Please do so prior to your appointment. We will advise you on whether you should be seen in our office, a telehealth appointment or if rescheduling is recommended. If you have any questions about travel and your upcoming appointment please do not hesitate to call our office.
Effective 12/03/20 AFA Obstetrics & Gynecology is going to need to restrict visitors from accompanying patients, this includes ultrasounds. If you are having an ultrasound you may FaceTime your partner so they can be included in this. With the increase in Covid-19 numbers we want to make sure our Patients and Staff are kept safe. Thank you for your understanding, we will keep you updated if things change.
Effective Friday, December 4, 2020 no visitors are allowed on L & D and postpartum at Emerson Hospital. All laboring moms may still have one support person AND professional doulas are still allowed in addition to that one support person.
One of our midwives did a podcast on being pregnant and precautions for pregnant women and their partners during this pandemic. We hope that you find this information valuable and interesting!
The health of the women we care for and their families are of the utmost importance to us here at AFA Ob/Gyn. We are closely monitoring all information and recommendations by the World Health Organization, Centers for Disease Control as well as the Massachusetts Department of Public Health regarding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19).
We have and continue to implement strict cleaning and sanitizing protocols of patient areas within all of our offices since the very first concerns were raised for COVID -19 within the United States. This pandemic has changed certain policies within our office. These changes are aimed at limiting exposure to you and our staff.
Here is what this may mean for you:
