What about prenatal appointments or women who are giving birth during the COVID-19 outbreak?

During delivery and the subsequent postpartum stay:

  • One (1) parent or dedicated person will be permitted to remain present provided that there is no risk of COVID-19 infection.
  • This parent or dedicated person can stay with the mother during her stay, but must respect various policies, including confinement to the room.

No visitors are permitted:

  • During follow-up appointments with pregnant women, including spouses, children and other family members.

Please note that patients without an accepted transfer from another health institution should not present themselves to the MUHC's Birthing Centre.
