COVID-19 and pregnancy

Safely delivering during COVID-19

The safety of our patients is of utmost importance to Riley Park Maternity Clinic and all of Calgary Foothills PCN.

Our maternity patients deliver at Foothills Medical Centre (hospital). For the safety of everyone, please answer the Covid-19 screening questions at the clinic and at the hospital truthfully. We realize there are many pregnancy symptoms that are similar to the COVID-19 symptom list and are dedicated to providing you the care you need. We have processes in place to ensure you will receive care even if you have symptoms. Your honesty protects everyone.

We are taking every precaution to ensure our patients, their families and our staff are safe both at Riley Park Maternity Clinic and the Foothills hospital.

As a team, we offer quality maternity care and education throughout your pregnancy until you and your baby return to your family physician.
