A Different Kind of Care Your Madison OBGYN Clinic
Covid Vaccine Update
As the pandemic continues, we have renewed hope for turning the corner as a successful vaccine is nearly here. Many of our patients are asking good questions about the safety and availability of these vaccines in pregnancy. Frontline healthcare workers are considered first tier for vaccine administration.
The vaccine has not been studied in pregnant or breastfeeding women, but SMFM recommends that healthcare workers who are considered prioritized for vaccination be offered the vaccine if pregnant. The SARS-CoV-2 vaccine is not a live vaccine. The theoretical risk of fetal harm from mRNA vaccines is very low. If your employer offers vaccination, we can discuss this SMFM guidance at your next prenatal care visit.
A support person may only come to your 1st OB appointment and First Trimester Screening Ultrasound. If you feel you need to bring a support person to your appointment, please talk to your provider’s team for approval. Your support person must be from the same household, wear a mask, and be symptom-free. No children allowed at any appointments, unless in a car seat.
Thank you for your understanding,
Madison Women’s Health
9/16/20 Clinic Update
Dear Madison Women’s Health Patients,
As we continue to monitor the Pandemic situation, please be rest assured, we are continuing to follow CDC and local guidelines with cleaning and sanitizing. It is the utmost importance for us to make sure our patients and staff are in a safe environment.
Patients and staff are still required to wear masks (cloth or surgical) while in the office unless asked to take them off by staff during an appointment.
Patients may only bring one support person to their Initial OB visit and at their 12-week ultrasound appointment. The support person must be masked and will have their temperature taken. If you feel it is necessary for a support person, please call and talk to your provider’s team. Patients may call or video conference their support person during appointments. We will make exceptions for newborns or infants in a carrier.
If you need assistance during your visit, we ask that the person who brings you in waits in his/her car until your appointment is over to help us limit the number of people in the clinic at any one time.
Upon arrival, patients need to call from their vehicle for registration questions and asked specific COVID-19 screening questions.
We may ask you to remain in your vehicle until your exam room is ready. This will allow us to continue to disinfect each room after each patient. A staff member will call you at your preferred number and instruct you on what exam room to go to. Patients will need to get their weight on the way to their exam room.
Once in an exam room, you will have your temperature and vitals taken.
To limit gatherings in the lobby, patients will need to call or MyChart for follow up visits.
We are continuing to offer telehealth visits. If you are interested in finding out more about telehealth, please reach out to our office.
We have restarted automated confirmation calls. Please listen to the entire call as it will have information on the check-in process.
We are receiving many calls about the Influenza vaccine. Currently, we have a minimal supply, and we are only vaccinating 36 weeks and above OB and postpartum patients. You may also contact your local pharmacy to see about their supply.
Please continue to monitor our social media pages and website for any updates.
We look forward to seeing you in the near future!

Preeclampsia and gestational hypertension can be surprising or even scary diagnoses. They affect 5-10% of pregnancies and are some of the main reasons labor is induced. Yet they are also some of the most common complications we see and manage every day. Learn which symptoms you need to watch for and why it’s so important to never skip a prenatal appointment.
