COVID-19 CLIENT INFORMATON

In our ongoing efforts to protect our clients, midwives and staff; we ask that you not attend clinic if you have a cough, fever, runny nose and/or have difficulty breathing and have been to an impacted area 14 days before your symptoms started or have been in close contact with someone with symptoms and a travel history to a COVID-19 (coronavirus) impacted area.

As COVID-19 continues to spread to new areas around the world, the best way to keep track of areas of concern is from the World Health Organization’s Daily COVID-19 situation reports.

If the above does not apply, but you are feeling unwell with flu or cold symptoms (cough, fever, runny nose, difficulty breathing), please rebook your appointment.

We request that you limit companions attending your appointment to one support person and please no children if possible.

Please do not bring anyone that has symptoms of cold or flu to your appointment.

To minimize exposure to our smallest Talbot Creek Midwives family members, we have removed all toys and children’s books from the reception and clinic rooms.

We thank you for your understanding and ongoing support.

We strive to provide a friendly, cheerful, family oriented atmosphere whilst maintaining professionalism. Our clinic is bright, spacious and very child friendly.

We strongly embrace the model of care and philosophies of the College of Midwives of Ontario.

The Association of Ontario Midwives provides guidance for the clinical care we offer.

Our catchment area is, but not limited to Elgin County, London and South West Middlesex. We attend births in the following hospitals; St. Thomas Elgin General Hospital and London Health Sciences Centre (Victoria Hospital) and offer the choice to have your baby at home.
