Updated COVID-19 Policies Effective January 3, 2022

01 Jan Updated COVID-19 Policies Effective January 3, 2022

Lifecycle WomanCare is committed to the safety of our clients and staff. There has been a noticeable spike in current COVID cases in our area and throughout the US.

We have made the difficult decision to limit all prenatal and gynecological visits to clients only. It is imperative that we limit exposure to all clients and staff during this heightened period of transmission. Please be sure to review our current COVID-19 Policy below and our mask-wearing guide. Masks must be of the following types (we will provide you with an appropriate mask if you do not have one available):

  • Surgical mask
  • Double layered cloth mask
  • KN-95
  • N-95

EFFECTIVE IMMEDIATELY: Beginning January 3rd 2022, Lifecycle WomanCare can ONLY accommodate CLIENTS for in-person visits. We encourage you to include your partner or support person via phone or video during your visit.

We will continue to evaluate the ability to include partners in the weeks to come.

IMPORTANT REMINDERS:

  • Masks are required for everyone who comes to LWC. They must be worn up and over the nose at all times.
  • We are only seeing LWC clients in the office for gynecological and pre-natal appointments. Partners and support people are welcome and encouraged to participate virtually during appointments:
    • This applies even if your partner/support person is vaccinated.
    • Your partner or support person may accompany you and your baby to a lactation visit or circumcision. We ask that they wait in the multipurpose room on the basement floor until it is time for your visit.
    • In addition to lactation visits, clients may bring their newborn to their six-week postpartum appointment. Children over the age of six-weeks are not permitted at any visits or births unless they are being serviced.
  • If you have any symptoms of concern or a known exposure to a COVID positive individual prior to your appointment, please call us to discuss alternate options. Symptoms of concern include:
    • Fever or chills
    • Cough
    • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
    • Fatigue
    • Muscle or body aches
    • Lower back and abdominal cramping
    • Headache
    • New loss of taste or smell
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion or runny nose
    • Nausea or vomiting
    • Diarrhea
  • Please keep in mind that we have telehealth options available for most visits. 

 

During labor clients may have two support people with them during their labor and birth at both Bryn Mawr Hospital and The Birth Center at Lifecycle WomanCare. This policy may vary at Bryn Mawr Hospital if you test positive for COVID-19.

We appreciate your ongoing cooperation and understanding. If you have any questions, please call us at 610.525.6086 to discuss. Our phone lines will open at 8:00 am on Monday, January 3rd.
