Times have changed, at least temporarily, amid the COVID-19 outbreak. That means special occasions, such as introducing your newborn child to the world, are being altered as safety and public health measures take precedence.
This clip from Fox 4 in Dallas is a story of how Walnut Hill OBGYN Dr. Jeffrey M. Thurston helped deliver Preston and Michelle Key’s new child under unique circumstances. In addition, Dr. John D. Bertrand, an OBGYN at Walnut Hill, discusses the adjustments and precautions new parents have taken during the childbirth process as a result of COVID-19. With social distancing guidelines in place, the pandemic has caused hospitals to omit families and friends from being a part of the delivery process and subsequent celebration.
