Illness Protocols at Brood

Right now more than ever, is the time to gain support, knowledge and community. We at Brood are striving to keep our families safe, supported and connected. Below you will find our latest protocol and offerings, based on the current pandemic, infections diseases, and respiratory viruses seasons (RSV, Covid-19, cold and flu season — and more).

Our priority is your family and our team’s safety

  • Doulas shifts are not social interactions and we are not guests in your space. Your Brood doulas are hired professional care workers providing a paid in-home care service.
  • Every member of our team is vaccinated against Covid-19 — due to the nature of Covid-19 and vaccination records, these are the only vaccines that we require from our team. Brood can only require government mandates vaccines.
  • Birth and postpartum care workers are well versed in sanitization and hand washing. As soon as our doulas arrive at your home, they will do so.
  • All doulas will arrive to shifts wearing a mask and continue to wear one, unless parents are asleep and we are not within 6ft of your babie(s). Families will dictate our doulas continued mask use, should you (and your doula) feel comfortable — they will remove their masks and cease use.
  • If any doula has a symptom of illness, they will (Covid-19) test daily until symptoms subside and be in touch to reschedule your shifts — for when they are in good health once more.
  • Should you have any other Covid-19 precautions in place, please feel free to share them with your doula and the Brood team. If you choose engage with our precautions and policies differently, you are doing so at your own risk.

We work and live on the unceded and occupied territories of the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish), səl̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) Nations. Since time immemorial, the original peoples of these lands have cared for their families and communities. We are committed to honouring their teachings, legacy and their sovereignty.
