“Hospitals are suddenly not seemingly the “safest” places to birth that they were just weeks ago." - Verana Faye, Doula

 

"If you are due this spring/summer (and perhaps maybe into this fall), you may have given some thought to birthing outside a hospital. Restrictions are being put in place, hospital resources are being stretched thin, and you and your family are at greater risk for contracting and spreading the Coronavirus in a hospital." - Marta Barensfeld, Doula

 

“We’re now hearing from increasing numbers of women who are reporting that hospitals are largely prohibiting partners, husbands, and family members from accompanying women into the birth room… And, most disturbingly, mothers are being separated from their babies after birth..." - Yolande Norris-Clark
