In our normal, everyday lives, the last few weeks of pregnancy are a mixture of emotions that can range from excitement and anticipation to worry and anxiety.
Right now, you are watching the news, talking to medical providers, family and friends, and wondering how the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is going to affect your birth plans, your health, and your baby's health, especially if you are planning on giving birth at your local hospital.
Currently, in the Metro Atlanta Area, the following facilities allow 2 person support that includes the partner/primary support person and a doula. Those facilities are The Atlanta Birth Center, hospitals in the Wellstar System, Northside Gwinnett, and Northeast Georgia Medical Center - Gainesville and Braselton. In many of these facilities doulas must show proof of certification for admittance. All other hospital policies only allow for 1 support person meaning the partner/primary support person OR a doula.
North Atlanta Concierge Doulas will continue to monitor the changes in visitor policy at the hospitals and facilities where our clients choose to give birth and keep you updated with this information. Policies can change on a day by day basis. We do suggest calling your facility, speaking with someone in the Labor & Delivery unit, and confirming their policy as it relates to doulas before your arrival.
North Atlanta Concierge Doulas wants to assure you that we are still committed to providing you with the individualized care and support you desire as you journey through this uncertain time in our nation's history. We will continue to provide educational resources to create a birth plan than reflects your desires and goals for birth and equip you with the tools you need to support both physical comfort and your emotional well-being as you navigate these new normals.
