1. I delivered 12 days ago in Austin and here were some of our hospital’s mandates:

    All patients admitted were tested. If they tested positive, their support person was tested. If they were positive, they had to leave. We had my mom set up to be my backup support, but were super diligent about practicing social distancing for the month prior to arrival to ensure my husband could be there.

    He was allowed to come and go during certain hours (we have an 18month old at home), but no other visitors were allowed.

    Masks had to be worn when anybody else was in the room. This included during labor and pushing!

    Hope it helps and best of luck to all mommas delivering during this crazy time!

  3. Congratulations! Your baby is beautiful and a reminder that miracles happen every day, even in a pandemic. So glad your husband was able to stay with you. I can’t imagine going through birth or welcoming a baby into the world with just one parent.
