At Ascension Seton our top priority is the health and safety of our patients, providers, associates, and communities. As cases of COVID-19 increase across the U.S., Ascension continues to aggressively respond to this evolving situation to protect our associates and those who we are privileged to serve. We regularly treat patients with infectious diseases and our clinical teams are highly trained in infection prevention protocols. Ascension is closely monitoring COVID‐19 developments and working daily in partnership with our local and state health departments and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
After much discernment regarding the best course of action to limit possible exposure to this virus and in an abundance of caution, we have decided it is in the best interest of our associates and the community to temporarily postpone all upcoming hospital maternity tours and classes, until further notice. We will share relevant updates with you by email. In the meantime, please visit www.setonbaby.com to watch a video tour of our maternity unit.
SMCA has amazing birth practices that will follow your birth plan including Skin to Skin after delivery, rooming in, delayed bath, access to a Lactation Consultant every day, and donor human milk as an option instead of formula if you plan to exclusively breastfeed and there is a medical indication for supplementation. The LC that is teaching your class will likely also work with you during your post partum stay.
