How can I serve you through social distancing?
It is very important to me that I continue to practice social distancing as much as possible. I will be moving our in-person visits to ZOOM (an online video chat room) or phone calls where we will still work through the same questions and have open discussion.
I am still accepting new clients! If you wish to "meet" me I will require that it be in an online video chat or phone call so that I may continue to practice social distancing as a precaution to keep my family and all my clients safe.
Below is the current policies at KGH, this means that if you have your spouse supporting you at your birth I will not be able to attend in person. However, I will be available for you via call and text 24/7. If you are planning an out of hospital birth I will be there to support you if you wish!

KGH Perinatal Policy - March 16th
In order to continue providing safe care during this time, the perinatal unit at Kelowna General has developed a pandemic policy. Please share this widely to anyone who may need to see it. We believe these to be the most important summarized points for you...
- only ONE support person in labor. This one support person will also be the only person allowed on the ward. Unfortunately this means NO visitors once you've had your baby. Please ensure your support person is healthy and has not travelled outside of Canada.
- no laughing gas available right now
- the waiting room is CLOSED.
- if you have a fever and cough please call L&D directly before you come in for an assessment and put on a mask as soon as you enter KGH. 250-862-4471
We are sorry to share these less than ideal notes with you, but we appreciate your understanding. As always, your and your baby's health is our main priority.
