COVID-19 Safety Protections

My Commitment to Your Safety

The year of 2020 has brought extraordinary circumstances to each of us. Through these times, I have adopted a vision of creativity and inspiration to raise the bar of what I do and how to expand breastfeeding support services to new families. As always, my care is based on health and safety guidelines, current practice knowledge, evidence-supported care and years of expertise.

 

I recognize this is an interesting time for bringing a new baby into the world and you may have some uncertainty and unease about interacting with people outside your immediate family, even if they are health care providers. It is an honor and a privilege for me to be invited into your home to support you with your breastfeeding needs, and that’s a responsibility I take very seriously. I want you to know I have increased my already stringent practice procedures, so you can feel safe and confident in the care I provide when we work together, and so all the families I work with know we are working together to protect each other.

Being a new parent is hard enough—let’s spend our time together confidently and at ease, so you can continue enjoying every moment with your precious baby! 
What I am doing for you...
  • I limit the number of in-home visits to a maximum of two each day (one in the morning, one in the afternoon).

  • I screen for symptoms and ask:

    • Have you or anyone in your household had a fever, or signs/symptoms of respiratory illness (cough or shortness of breath), loss of taste/smell, fatigue related to illness (not related to giving birth).

    • Have you or anyone in your household come into contact with a laboratory confirmed COVID-19 patient within the past 14 days? 

    • If you answer “yes” to either of these questions, we will need to consider an alternative to an in-home consultation.

  • I wear a medical grade mask throughout our visit and ask that you wear a mask as well.

  • I wash my hands frequently and use my own paper towels to dry them. I use hand sanitizer between washings if necessary.

  • I wear gloves as appropriate.

  • I thoroughly clean and disinfect all equipment used during our visit before I come into your home, and when we finish. I also keep the equipment I bring into your home to a bare minimum.

  • Between clients, I go home, shower and change clothes.

  • My family and I follow the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment (CDPHE) mandates and public health orders for mask wearing in public places, we limit where we go and how often we go there (example: grocery store, etc.), we limit our circle of friends/family to a very small number of people, and we do not attend group gatherings.

What you can do for me...
  • Please tell me if you or anyone in your household has any symptoms (cough, shortness of breath, fever, loss of taste or smell), or if you develop symptoms/test positive for COVID-19 within 14 days of our visit.

  • Follow CDC and public health guidelines & orders for social distancing and mask wearing in public.

  • Inform me if you prefer to have a telehealth consultation (phone or live video via a secure platform).
