SSM Health hosts zoom event on labor and delivery protocol during the pandemic

STL Moms

ST. LOUIS – With COVID-19 cases rising in the region, it’s a stressful time for everyone, and especially for women preparing to have a baby.

Woman’s health experts with SSM health want families who are about to deliver at their hospitals to be up to speed on current policies, so they’re hosting a zoom event Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.

Becky Boedeker, a lactation consultant with SSM Health St. Mary’s hospital, said two adult healthy support people can accompany the laboring woman in the room. The support people need to wear a mask at all times and the delivering mother only needs to wear one if she’s up walking around in the halls.
