Well Baby and Prenatal Clinic
Location: 5-35 Bridge Street in Picton
3 examination rooms have been set up to keep each area as clean as possible. There will be a prenatal/postpartum room, a well baby room and a room for breastfeeding consults. We have decided to suspend home visits during this time and instead bring any mother that is willing to travel to the clinic for hands on breastfeeding help. We are also working to set up OTN should a mother or family not be able to travel.
Appointments will be on Wednesday and Thursday each week. We are asking that only one parent accompany each baby to their appointment and that the Prenatals come on their own. No extra children will be allowed, this is to keep the clinic as COVID free as possible.
We will clean each area between patients and families are being asked to wait in their cars till they are directed to come in.
PEFHT will be calling patients 1-2 days before their appointments to screen them and go over developmental questions and any concerns they might have.
If we have any concerns about the child or pregnant patient we will notify their primary care physician. For any urgent/immediate concerns we will try to contact the primary physician. If we can not get a hold of them then we will call on the Nurse Practitioners or Dr. Nancekievill.
Thank you to everyone that has helped get this clinic off the ground and running. We are all working together to keep our community safe especially those that are most vulnerable.
Special thanks to CJ Thompson for the generous donation of space. See Picton Gazette article
