Video Visits:

We are excited to offer our current patients Video Visits. Rather than coming to our office, you can remain in the comfort of your home and still receive a consultation/appointment with one of our providers.

To participate you will need to have a valid email address and a computer or device with a camera (mobile phone, iPad, tablet, etc). Simply call our office and we can get you scheduled. 

Many insurance companies are covering video visits like they would regular in-office appointments.

 

Please Note: Video Visits may not be appropriate in every situation. To see if it is a good option for you, please call our office and speak to a patient services representative.

Pregnancy & COVID-19 FAQs for Moms-to-Be

What is the risk to pregnant women of getting COVID-19?

The CDC does not currently know if a pregnant women has a greater chance of getting sick from COVID-19 than the general public nor whether they are more likely to have serious illness as a result. Pregnant women experience changes in their bodies that may increase their risk of some infections. With viruses from the same family as COVID-19, and other viral respiratory infections, such as influenza, women have had a higher risk of developing severe illness. It is always important for pregnant women to protect themselves from illnesses.

How can pregnant women protect themselves from getting COVID-19?

Pregnant women should do the same things as the general public to avoid infection. You can help stop the spread of COVID-19 by taking these actions:

  • Cover your cough (using your elbow is a good technique) 
  • Avoid people who are sick
  • Clean your hands often using soap and water or alcohol-based hand sanitizer

Can COVID-19 cause problems for a pregnancy?

The CDC does not know at this time if COVID-19 would cause problems during pregnancy or affect the health of the baby after birth.

Can COVID-19 be passed from a pregnant woman to the fetus or newborn?

The CDC still does not know if a pregnant woman with COVID-19 can pass the virus that causes COVID-19 to her fetus or baby during pregnancy or delivery. No infants born to mothers with COVID-19 have tested positive for the COVID-19 virus. In these cases, which are a small number, the virus was not found in samples of amniotic fluid or breastmilk.

If a pregnant woman has COVID-19 during pregnancy, will it hurt the baby?

The CDC does not know at this time what if any risk is posed to infants of a pregnant woman who has COVID-19. There have been a small number of reported problems with pregnancy or delivery (e.g. preterm birth) in babies born to mothers who tested positive for COVID-19 during their pregnancy. However, it is not clear that these outcomes were related to maternal infection.

What to do if pregnant with confirmed or suspected
COVID-19

Pregnant patients with confirmed or suspected COVID-19 should notify their physician and the hospital at which they are scheduled to deliver. The obstetric unit should be informed prior to arrival so that the facility can make appropriate infection control preparations before the patient arrives for care. https://www.buffalobaby.org/#faq
