Hurricane Preparedness

August 26, 2020

Woman’s Hospital remains open to care for your family.

We are closely monitoring Hurricane Laura and have prepared our campus to withstand the upcoming weather.

  • At this time,  we are not canceling any elective procedures or surgeries.
  • If you have questions about doctor’s appointments, please contact your physician’s office directly.

Pregnant During a Hurricane

The COVID-19 situation gives pregnant women a few more things to consider. 

  • If you plan to evacuate, pack extra cleaning supplies. You want to ensure that you clean and disinfect your evacuation site especially if you have to bring your newborn there. 
  • You also want to be sure to pack masks for every member of your family. 
  • Lastly visitor restrictions remain in place, so you may need to consider child care options if you have other children.
