Covid-19 updates

Globally, we are in uncharted territory with the emergence of COVID-19 and it’s impact on our way of life.

Throughout the pandemic period women continue to become pregnant and babies continue to be born.

Some pregnant women, with pre-existing health conditions, have been required to shield and self-isolate wherever possible. Some babies still are born premature or sick and need extra care.

Here are links to some guidance about Covid-19 and perinatal care.
