At the Birthing Center, we are doing everything we can to welcome you in a place of warmth and peace, even during this pandemic. Also, we are adhering to the governement's sanitary mesures, for you and your family's safety.
Starting October 15 2021, pregnant/postnatal women do not need to show a full proof of vaccination to receive care here at the birthing house or the hospital. The Goverment of Quebec requires every visitor or attendee of 13 years of age and older to show a full proof of vaccination and a government issued ID to be able to accompany a client. This measure is required in every installation, including hospitals and birthing houses.
For every prenatal and post-natal consultation, we will have to verify your partner or attendees proof of vaccination through the Vaxicode app or a written proof. Unfortunately, the partner or attendant who is not fully vaccinated will not be able to come for the consultation.
The Quebec government has decided that the delivery period be exempted of this measure, meaning that person accimpaning the birthing women won't have to show proof of vaccination for the whole delivery period and for the immediate postpartum at the birthing house, as well as the hospital. If you want to have a second attendee, this person will have to be fully vaccinated.
We would like to remind you that the instructions regarding the number of attendees stays the same: only one person can accompany you during the prenatal and postnatal consultations. Children still can't enter in the Birthing House during the consultations and delivery period (only exception for immediate postpartum: one kid at a time can be present with you in the room).
