We understand that there are many questions right now and we’d like to share some details about what to expect.
2 support people during labour
This can be your partner, a family member, friend or doula (whoever you choose to be with you). Your two support person(s) cannot rotate or change through the labour process. This includes post labour, while you recover and until you are discharged from Birth Unit. If your support person leaves they will not be permitted to re-enter. Please ensure both you and your support person have everything you need during and post labour. Please remember to bring your car seat
1 support person in Early Labour Assessment
Women who come in to the early labour unit for assessment may be asked to go home until they are further along the process of active labour. This is normal practice.
1 support person in Ultrasound
In order to prepare, here are a few details about what you can expect:.
If you are confirmed and scheduled for an induction you will be contacted by a birth unit nurse to tell you when to come in. Please do not arrive unless you’ve received that call.
Please understand we are receiving a high volume of calls and questions. We are doing our best to provide information as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience as we navigate through these challenging times.
Despite the added restrictions to keep everyone safe, we’re here to provide expert and loving care to you and your baby.
