A note about COVID-19 from The Baby Doctor


I hope you, your babies, and your families are safe, healthy and well. I wouldn’t be telling the truth if I said, “everything is OK,” because it most definitely is not OK.

I am committed to continuing to provide safe telehealth and face-to-face visits because medical services are essential and medically necessary. Protocols include limitations on how many visits I can complete face to face, meticulous cleaning of toys, hand washing before and after all sessions, and 100% compliance of wearing a face mask for myself and family members present during the session.

All families are asked three questions and must answer “NO,” when receiving services:

Have you felt COVID symptoms (fever, chills, shortness of breath, body aches) in the last 21 days?

Have you been in close proximity with a confirmed positive case?

Have you traveled in the last 21 days to a COVID hot spot?

An additional question will now be asked,

Do you practice safe social distancing?

Safe social distancing is a national recommendation and refers to gatherings even in intimate and family settings. While this is inconvenient and even distressing, one positive case at a birthday party can result in transmission, setting off a chain of events that results in more cases.

I cannot comprehend what it means to have to tell a family that I may have potentially infected their baby. That is why I am regularly tested for antibodies, and have recently tested negative for COVID-19. It is our collective responsibility to be be safe with our family members and each other in these times.

Be safe, be well,

Miss Angela Marcotte, The Baby Doctor
