Masking Update – March 2023

As of Monday, March 20, 2023 we are pleased to share that universal masking is no longer required at all of our office locations.

In September 2022, the CDC stated that healthcare facilities may choose not to require universal source control when the community level is low and community transmission is not high and maintains those level designations for two weeks or longer. We have met these criteria and decided to no longer require universal mask use within our healthcare settings. Please note that we will continue to provide masks at our facilities, for all who need or want to wear them. We will continue to monitor CDC weekly county community levels, transmission levels as well as any regulatory mandates to guide decision making.

Even with this change, masks will still be required for individuals with respiratory symptoms or symptoms of COVID-19.

Although having your records isn’t required to make an appointment, it can be very helpful to have a copy of your last GYN office visit, your last pap test, and any routine labs that you have had within the last year.  To facilitate this process, complete an online medical records release for your previous healthcare provider.  Click here to complete the medical records release.

Bedford Commons OBGYN accepts most major health insurance plans.  However, it is important for you to verify whether we accept your specific health plan at the time you schedule an appointment.  We may require a referral for certain plans.  Please note that we do not currently accept the Anthem BCBS Pathways Plan from the New Hampshire Marketplace.

We have offices in Bedford, Windham, Manchester, and soon will open a location in Londonderry, NH!  In addition, we are anticipating our Derry location to reopen in Summer 2023!  We look forward to seeing you at a location that’s convenient for you.

COVID19 Vaccine Considerations for Pregnant or Breastfeeding Women

Many of our patients have been asking about the safety and effectiveness of the COVID19 vaccine in pregnancy and breastfeeding.  Vaccination is the best way to reduce the risks of COVID-19 infection and COVID-related complications for both you and your baby.  Now that the vaccine has been out since December 2020, we have a lot more information about the vaccine for pregnant and breastfeeding women.  We encourage all of our pregnant and breastfeeding patients to stay up to date on their COVID-19 vaccinations including the newly released omicron booster.

Both the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) and the Society for Maternal-Fetal Medicine (SMFM) recommend that pregnant and breastfeeding people be vaccinated against COVID19.

Although pregnant or lactating women were not included in the COVID19 vaccine clinical trials, hundreds of thousands of pregnant people have been vaccinated and no unexpected pregnancy or fetal problems have occurred.  There have been no reports of any increased risk of pregnancy loss, growth problems, or birth defects.

We know that about 1 to 3 in 1,000 pregnant women with COVID19 will develop severe illness.  Compared to those who aren’t pregnant, pregnant women infected by COVID19 with symptoms are 3 times more likely to need ICU care, 2 to 3 times more likely to need advanced life support, and have a 70% increased risk of death.  According to a September 29, 2021 urgent health advisory from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), there have been more than 125,000 confirmed cases of COVID19 in pregnant people including more than 22,000 hospitalizations and 161 deaths.  To reduce these risk, the COVID19 vaccine is recommended.  See the full CDC health advisory here.  

The best way to prevent complications from COVID-19 is vaccination and continue to be up to date on your vaccination series.  We strongly recommend that our pregnant and breastfeeding patients get the COVID19 vaccinationPregnancy is not an indication for a COVID19 vaccine waiver.  

If you have questions about the vaccine, please talk to your provider at your next visit.
