With the spread of COVID-19, Ohio Hills Midwifery has made some changes to help slow the spread of the pandemic, ensure safe care protocols for pregnant clients, and to remain compliant with local and state mandates. Please remember, these changes are not just for your safety, but that of the midwives and other pregnant families as well. Below is a summary of these changes.

  • All midwives wear masks for all in-person encounters (office visits, home visits, births, etc.)

  • All clients and visitors to the office are required to wear a mask at all times and will be checked for fever before entering.

  • Clients are asked to cancel their scheduled appointment if anyone in their household has any COVID-19 symptoms (this includes cough, fever/chills, difficulty breathing, fatigue, body aches, headache, new loss of taste or smell, sore throat, congestion or runny nose, nausea or vomiting, and diarrhea) or if they have reason to believe a member of their household may have been exposed to COVID-19.

  • Clients are asked to limit the number of people they bring to office visits (partners are always welcome).

  • All office appointments are now stagger scheduled so there is no overlap or contact between clients. There will only ever be one client/family in the office at any given time.

  • All contact surfaces in the office are disinfected between every appointment.

  • All appointments not requiring a clinical component will be done virtually by phone for all non-Amish clients. This includes all initial consultations and postpartum visits beyond the first week postpartum.
