This means to not only take care of your mental and emotional needs but also to take care of yourself physically.
Primary care and preventive care are always important — but even more so during a pandemic. Other illnesses, health concerns, and ailments haven’t gone away as a result of COVID-19.
Keeping yourself safe from COVID-19 should not, and does not have to, happen at the expense of your non-COVID-19 related health.
Checkups are an easy and essential way to ensure you take care of your whole self. Getting care such as immunizations, annual exams and physicals, bloodwork, and more give you peace of mind that you are healthy and well.
We know that some people are uncomfortable with the idea of going to a doctor’s office right now because of the pandemic. We want to assure you that at Heartland Women’s Healthcare we place a high priority and emphasis on ensuring that our offices are cleaned regularly and that we take every precaution to keep our staff and patients safe.
We also offer video-based telemedicine appointments for many circumstances so that we can give you the best care possible without you having to leave the comfort of your home.
Eventually, this will pass, as all things do and the world will go back to normal. In the meantime, make sure that you’re taking care of yourself so that you can continue to be the amazing mother you are!
