3/22/2020 Extraordinary acts of kindness & more pregnancy resources
So first of all a big thank you to our patients Simon and Jenny Shung of Simply Orthodontics who donated more than 150 masks to our practice to help keep us safe and open during these hard times. What an amazing community we live in! Thank you, we are extremely grateful! #simplygivesback www.soirvine.com
Dr. Karmardian's husband, managed to obtain some N95 masks for us through his business and industrial connections at Armorcast products. We also donated some of these to local Emergency Room staff at 2 different hospitals. #unitedwestand
We also are grateful to Trevor Theriot who donated 5,000 N95 masks to Hoag Hospital.
Another great resource on what we know so far for pregnant patients and COVID-19 written by a perinatologist Stephanie Martin:
And as promised I am putting together some resources for FREE general prenatal classes. I know the Hoag perinatal education is working on online resources as well.
Stanford's Short Course on Breastfeeding - free, one week class. Very comprehensive.
We are working with a doctor in Seattle who is developing an app called eDoula -- should be available in the next 30-60 days. Stay tuned for more information.
