What questions should I be asking my healthcare professional at this time?

Cadée underlines the importance of establishing a trusting relationship with your healthcare provider. “All of those questions that have to do with you and your health, I would ask them freely. If you have an open relationship with your healthcare provider – with your midwife, with your obstetrician – they will discuss these things with you and answer you openly.

It is your absolute right to know these things because it’s your body and your baby.”

“Midwives are responding to increased demands on their services as are doctors and nurses, and so may take a little longer to respond,” Cadée notes. She suggests establishing a system of how and when to communicate with your healthcare professional. For example, organize routine around appointments, and how to get in touch for urgent care.

It may also be helpful to talk to care providers in advance about obtaining a copy of your health records including record of prenatal care, in case of any disruption or change in services.

When it comes to your plan for giving birth, it is important to ask as many questions as you need to. Cadée suggests the following:

•Am I at risk of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in this space?
•Has someone else been here with the COVID-19 virus?

•How do you separate people with the COVID-19 virus from people who have not?
•Is there enough protective clothing for the healthcare professionals?

•Am I allowed to take someone with me? If not, why not?

•Am I allowed to keep my baby with me? If not, why not?
