Doulas in Hospital During the Pandemic

On October 19, DHA President & CEO wrote to Delaware Division of Public Health Director Dr. Karyl Rattay regarding the role of Doulas in the hospital during the pandemic. The letter states that "In order to acknowledge the important role that doulas continue to play during childbirth, particularly in the challenging pandemic environment, all Delaware hospitals offering obstetric services within the hospital as of the date of this letter will allow a Doula to be present during childbirth as a second visitor while the hospital has pandemic related visitor restrictions in place."
