Covid - 19
Safety first for our patients,
staff and families 17 June 2021

We are currently trying to see all obstetrical and gynecologic appointments in office,

and we need to schedule and limit numbers in order to abide by social distancing recommendations. This will lead to longer wait times and some appointments may need to be completed by phone.

If you have an appointment or procedure booked, you will be screened for a history of symptoms and potential exposures to COVID 19 contacts by phone. If you have symptoms like fever, cough, sore throat, exposure to known cases or travel outside of Canada within the last 14 days, please call ahead of your appointment and self-isolate for 14 days. Call 811 for further information or use the self-assessment tool button above or visit

www.saskatchewan.ca/COVID19

Depending on the nature of the planned appointment or procedure, we will determine if the visit needs to take place in the hospital, assessment center, office or by phone.

We require all persons entering the clinic to wear a medical style disposable mask. We can provide a mask for patients if they do not have one.

We cannot presently allow a support person to attend with you. We realize this is very difficult and special circumstances may arise that we can accommodate on a case by case basis. Newborns with new mothers are welcome.

For clinic appointments, you may come to reception on arrival. Once registered, you can wait in the assigned areas in our waiting room or elevator lobby.

Gynecologic surgeries and hospital procedures are presently being triaged by SHA administration and we will communicate any changes or preparations required with you as soon as we are made aware.

We thank you for your patience.

We hope to be able to open to normal routines soon and will keep this site updated.

Covid Vaccine and Pregnancy

The Covid vaccine is recommended in pregnancy because the risk of the infection in pregnancy outweighs potential risk of the vaccine. Preventing infection is best. Talk to your doctor about your personal health situation and to answer any questions.

Saskatchewan Health Authority will prioritize pregnant women for the vaccine.  You will require a letter from your obstetrical care provider to make the appointment.  Please talk to your doctor or call the office if you wish to have the vaccine and we will provide the required letter.

The timeline of the vaccine matters to effectiveness and our vaccine supply.

The Covid vaccine should be given:

• More than 90 days after a documented Covid infection

• More than 14 days after Tdap (Pertussis or Whooping cough) vaccine

Once you receive the Covid vaccine, you should not receive another vaccine for 28 days.
