The information remains the same however and Pregnancy and Postpartum Resources during COVID19 includes evidence-based information for expecting and new parents. We will continue to provide information from primary sources on our Facebook and Twitter feeds and we recommend these sites for continued updates:

    A message from Denise Stern, CEO of Let Mommy Sleep:

    Hello Families and thank you as always for allowing us to help and be part of your postpartum community. I’m touching in today to share what Let Mommy Sleep does on a nightly basis to prioritize the health and safety of our families and staff and to share evidence-based coronavirus information for pregnant and postpartum parents.

    Safety Practices

    Below are the same practices our Nurses and Newborn Care Providers follow on a nightly basis when and I hope that brings everyone a sense of comfort during this uncertain time. 

    • Handwashing upon arrival to your home and throughout the night.
    • Caregivers work with only 1 family at a time.
    • We are quarantining (10 days minimum) between cases
    • Mask wearing
    • All staff has received yearly flu shots as well as: updated Tdap (Tetanus, Diptheria, Pertussis), MMR (Measles, Mumps Rubella) and Hepatitis B.  While these vaccinations do not directly protect against the coronavirus they help keep staff and families protected against other yearly illnesses that decrease immune responses.
    • Caregivers haven’t travelled to any affected areas within the last several months.
    • As always, if caregivers have even a suspicion of illness they will not go into your home. 

    All this being said, we want to be realistic about the chance that there may be service interruptions. Our main goal is always to keep staff, families and newborns safe.  At this time we have zero exposure and no reason to expect any interruption. However, as this is an unprecedented situation, we want to manage expectations as best we can.  We will do our very best to maintain continuity of care and keep in communication. You can contact us anytime with questions or comments.

    Update to the above message, July 2021– Now that our staff have all received both vaccines we are lifting quarantine restrictions between cases and newborn caregivers may work with more than one family at a time.
