Introducing Virtual Visits at New England OB-GYN
We are pleased to now offer virtual visits to both obstetrical and gynecological patients. If you are interested in switching over to a virtual visit for your upcoming appointment or to schedule an appointment, please contact our office and we will plan to have your provider contact you by phone. Some visits may also be conducted via Zoom meeting. Please download the Zoom application on your phone or laptop in advance if you are interested in virtual visits.
We are now offering certain prenatal visits to be conducted virtually with their provider as long as they are not having any obstetrical problems. If you would prefer to have your visit in the office setting or have an issue that cannot be addressed via phone, that is OK as long as you are not sick and have not been in direct contact with anyone who is sick/has tested positive for COVID-19.
If you would like to proceed with a virtual visit type, your provider would like you to obtain a blood pressure cuff and scale at home so you can self-monitor. We can send in a prescription for a blood pressure cuff to M&M medical supply or you can purchase one over the counter. Please let us know if you would like an order from us.
All routine two week post partum appointments will now be conducted virtually with Bibi Khadija, PA on Fridays. You may have also met Bibi during your postpartum stay at BWH while she rounds on our postpartum patients. Routine 6-8 week postpartum visits may also be conducted virtually if you are not having any problems that require in-person evaluation.
Lactation counseling is also available via telemedicine with our Certified Lactation Counselor and Nurse Practitioner Jen Harper.
Many gynecological visits can also be conducted virtually. Please see below for a list of gynecological concerns that may be addressed via telephone or Zoom meeting with your provider:
