Pregnancy Planning Kit
Whether you are planning for pregnancy or you are pregnant, you probably have a lot of questions. We’re here to help.
As of 2/2/21, we continue to comply with social distance guidelines and to keep our patients, loved ones and employees safe from illness, our visitor policy will remain in place. Please refrain from bringing infants, children, and family to office visits. We will allow one healthy, masked adult to accompany you to your first prenatal appointment, your first ultrasound, and your 18-20 week anatomy ultrasound for pregnancy.
Based on new safety information, we are updating our face covering/mask policy. Anyone entering our clinic for any reason will be required to wear a face mask or covering. You are expected to wear a hands-free face covering/mask the whole time you are in the clinic. We do not have the ability to provide patients with face covering/masks but you can easily make your own with these simple instructions. Plastic shields do not fall within our policy for protection. If you wear a plastic shield, please also wear a face covering /mask. If you come to your appointment without a face covering/mask you will not be allowed into the clinic and asked to reschedule. We apologize for this, but it is to protect your safety and ours.
In response to the rapidly changing COVID-19 pandemic, we are receiving medical guidance from multiple sources intended for multiple audiences.
We, the physicians at Moreland OB-GYN, evaluate this guidance as it becomes available and determine what is best and most applicable to our patients. We have recently received some recommendations from a panel of physicians regarding treatment of pregnant women at term. This has yet to be commented on by the CDC or ACOG but we felt it is important to act now.
We are recommending at 37 weeks, all pregnant women work from home if able and if not then they stay home from work. Pregnant women should also observe strict social distancing during this time. This is to reduce the risk of the critical COVID-19 disease (symptoms peak about two weeks after exposure) from being present at the time of delivery.
We will provide a letter with this recommendation for employers. If your employer requests FMLA paperwork, we are happy to provide it. Be aware some employers may count this against the FMLA time you receive after delivery. We can also make no guarantees about short term disability for this period of time. We cannot provide this for spouses or other household members but would recommend they observe the general recommendations of social distancing and hygiene.
The physicians are happy to discuss this with you at your next office visit.
We are requesting that you use MyChart for the quickest and most efficient way of communicating with our providers and staff for non-urgent requests.
If the message is urgent, please call our office at 262-544-4411. Some employees are working from home as a precaution to stay healthy. A returned phone call from one of our employees may show on caller ID as ‘unavailable’. Please accept an ‘unavailable’ phone call. If you have a privacy blocker on your phone, please turn it off so that we may reach you.
If you think you are ill, please DO NOT come to the clinic. Call our medical staff or MyChart message first.
