As a mother and as a physician, I understand there are many unknowns right now for moms as they prepare to deliver their babies. Despite the challenges we face with the COVID-19 pandemic, Barton Health continues to provide compassionate care that puts mothers and babies first. Barton’s practices in place honor the needs of mother and child while upholding everyone’s health and safety.
Barton makes carefully calculated decisions with our patients’ best interests in mind, and we do what we feel is best for our community while following state and federal guidelines for maternity care.
