COVID-19 POLICY

Given the current and evolving situation, we at Balancing from Birth to Baby have developed a new policy to protect our clients, students, and loved ones.

Please read our updated policy. The evolving situation is changing daily and as more information becomes available we will share as necessary.

We continue to offer our regularly scheduled classes virtually for the time being, until such time we receive direction from our local health units regarding class sizes and spacing.

We continue to offer Doula Services virtually and limited services in home with strict infection control protocols in place. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.

Given that pregnant women are a vulnerable population we want to ensure we are offering our services in the safest ways possible.

COVID-19 POLICY

Doula Services

 

We recognize that hospitals are updating their visitor policies daily. At this time our local hospitals are only allowing one person to accompany a labouring person.

 
We are making sure that our clients have as many tools as possible to get through this. We are offering our clients additional prenatal and postpartum appointments. We are also loaning clients a birth box rental for their hospital birth. 
 
 
ANY TIME OUR DOULAS ARE IN A CLIENTS HOME THEY ARE WEARING GLOVES AND MASK TO PROTECT BOTH CLIENTS AND THEMSELVES. 
 
 
During labour we will support clients at home until it is time to head to the hospital. After that, we can continuously video chat if the client wishes OR check in every hour and video chat as needed. As needed would be anytime either of a client feels anxious or uncertain or some progress has occurred. The hospital is providing free wifi which is helping our clients to be in regular contact with us. 

Our current clients who are due in the coming weeks have been and will continue to be updated as we know more.
