Hurricane Dorian Warning and Instructions for Patients

An unexpected and unwanted guest could arrive this week, hurricane Dorian.

Hopefully, Hurricane Dorian does not make landfall. However, here are some recommendations for our pregnant patients, if a hurricane or tropical storm warning becomes in effect in our area:

  • If you are more than 2 weeks away from your due date (38 weeks or less), follow evacuation instructions and go to a safe shelter.
  • If you have had a high-risk pregnancy with active preterm labor, placenta previa, or some other unstable condition, please call for instructions.
  • If you are less than two weeks away from your due date (38weeks or more) and have had cervical dilation and contractions, call for instructions; otherwise go to a safe shelter.
  • Please do not call the office or hospital unless it is necessary, as this will overload our ability to handle those patients who do need care.
  • If you are having an emergency and cannot reach us, go to the hospital.
  • Take an adequate supply of medications with you if you evacuate the area.
  • If you are instructed to go to the hospital, there will not be space for your family members other than your spouse. All other members should report to a safe shelter.
