Coronavirus Disease 2019 and Pregnancy COVID-19
Inanna Birth & Women’s Care is acutely aware of the pandemic outbreak of this disease now in the United States and North Texas. Many of you may be worried so we are letting you know how we are responding to some of the concerns surrounding this virus and transmission. Right now, there is no evidence that you are more prone to this disease because of pregnancy. There is not a current vaccine, so general actions such as good hand washing, coughing into your sleeve or into a tissue, and limiting visitors or large crowds are always good precautions. Continuing your healthy diet, vitamins as usual, and using good common sense to avoid contact with others with signs of any illness is what we recommend.
We are doing our best to keep the environment at Inanna as sanitary as possible by wiping down surfaces of phones, light switches, door knobs, toilet handles, clinical supplies with an antiseptic solution and of course frequent, meticulous handwashing. We have also taken all the children’s toys out of circulation. We will also be diffusing essential oils (Thieves) recommended to sanitize the air in hopes of fighting viral particles in the air. Although there is no research to support that it is effective for this virus, it is supposed to help with other viruses so we will be trying that to make every attempt to keep the environment safe.
One thing to keep in mind is that pregnancy occurs during a time in a woman’s life when she is generally young and healthy and better able to fight disease. Because we are not in a hospital, there is no intensive care unit, high patient volumes or numerous staff who have been in contact with other people who are sick or caring for sick patients. This has always been a safety feature of outpatient facilities, including birth centers, repeatedly showing lower infection rates. Inanna has a 14 year, zero% infection rate!
If you have any other concerns, please feel free to contact our office. If you are sick, call your PCP as we are unable to test you. Below is a good article that addresses many of the questions that you may have. (COVID-19, Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: What We Know is reassuring. Avivaromm.com) So, take a deep breath, and take one day at a time. God Bless you all from the staff at Inanna.
Our awesome office staff, Deb and Susan, without whom, NOTHING would get done!
I have had 2 amazing birth experiences at Inanna Women's Center. Both very different and beautiful in their own ways. They have such an amazing staff and care givers there. We wouldn't choose any other place to have our laboring experiences.

At Inanna, we are staffed by Board Certified Nurse Midwives who are also Registered Nurses. We have cumulatively birthed thousands of babies over two decades. We all hold Master’s degrees yet remain steadfast in our belief that birth is a normal event until proven otherwise. The majority of our experience has been with birth occurring outside of the hospital. Our safety record is unrivaled, with a remarkable cesarean rate of only 2.9% and very low transport rates for both mother and baby.
In addition to the Certified Nurse Midwives, our staff includes highly trained Registered Nurses, Lactation Consultants, and Doulas that serve the client and her family as well as the on-call CNM.
We are also committed to training CNM students and family nurse practitioners and nurses, but do NOT use them as a substitute for our trained birth center staff.
