COVID-19 and pregnancy - an update for our patients
We would like to take this opportunity to update you about your maternity care during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and assure you that our dedicated team of expert nurses, physicians and midwives are committed to providing safe and effective care to every patient who walks through our doors.
COVID-19 testing for moms-to-be
For added peace of mind and safety, Medical City Healthcare is offering COVID-19 testing for pregnant women prior to delivery. If moms-to-be have a scheduled induction or Cesarean delivery (C-section) planned, testing will be available approximately 48 hours in advance of your procedure. Pregnant patients should consult with their OBGYN offices for details and designated testing locations. After your COVID-19 test, pregnant patients are advised to stay home (self-quarantine) and avoid visitors for 48 hours prior to their scheduled induction or C-section.
For pregnant patients who begin labor before being tested, tests will be available in the Labor and Delivery units of the hospital.
