We all know that breastfeeding is best for our children, but it is not always easy. Our mission is to support you and your baby so that you can meet your breastfeeding goals. Breastfeeding takes two. We work with the parent and child as a unit to meet the needs of the dyad.
CORONAVIRUS PRACTICE UPDATE - February 14, 2022
We continue to take the Covid-19 pandemic seriously and want to keep you, your family, our staff, and the community as protected as possible. We are proud to announce that our office staff is fully vaccinated, including booster doses.
Now that that community transmission has decreased, we are again updating our safety policies. We are happy to invite a second adult into the office as long as they are healthy and FULLY VACCINATED. A fully vaccinated adult has completed their primary series of vaccines at least 2 weeks ago.
We will continue to follow the CDC guidelines for disinfection, masking, and distancing. We will continue to limit face-to-face contact as much as possible. For this reason, we are strictly implementing the following measures:
ONE ADULT will always be permitted to accompany a child patient into the office suite and into the exam rooms. Limiting person to person contact is the best strategy for preventing the spread of this virus.
A SECOND ADULT will be permitted to enter the office suite with your child ONLY if they have proof of FULL VACCINATION (see above). If an additional adult who is not fully vaccinated has accompanied you for the car ride, they will need to remain in the car during the appointment.
You will not be permitted to bring a stroller into the office suite. Please bring ONLY YOUR BABY and diaper bag (car seat is ok).
All adults must wear a mask covering the mouth and nose while in the office suite.
No siblings or other children will be permitted in the office suite or exam rooms.
Wound checks for frenotomy patients will be performed digitally at 1 week after the procedure. Please click here for instructions on taking a proper picture or video of your child's wound site to be emailed for review. You will then be contacted regarding healing and will be provided with any additional instructions as appropriate.
We understand that these measures do not foster the ideal patient experience, but feel strongly that it is the most responsible course of action at this time.
Lastly, if you have a fever, cough, or cold symptoms or you have been diagnosed with or exposed to someone with known or suspected coronavirus, please cancel your appointment and keep yourself safe.
We appreciate your patience and understanding.
