We have been taking the COVID-19 pandemic very seriously and your safety throughout your fertility treatments is not top priority. Our team is 100%vaccinated and will always be masked during your visits. At the current time, we are requiring patient masking for all visits, limiting number of people in the office at a time, and our waiting room is closed. You will wait in your vehicle when you come to the office and we will call you once your room is ready. If you are being dropped off, please plan accordingly as you will not be able to wait indoors (we do have a waiting space outside).
We have been following the American Society of Reproductive Medicine guidelines and we do recommend the COVID vaccination at this time. You can visit asrm.org for more information. If you have questions, please feel free to ask your doctor. Please be aware that cycles will be cancelled if you develop COVID and we strongly encourage social distancing, masking, and avoiding large gatherings for all people trying to conceive or pregnant, regardless of vaccination status.
FORAx UCSF COVID-19 STUDY
Our team at FORA has partnered with UCSF to provide the first data about COVID-19 infections during the critical first trimester of pregnancy and its impact on women’s health and that of their developing babies. Fora is proud to be on the Steering Committee and working to advance what we know about COVID-19 and early pregnancy. We believe that you shouldn’t have to put your dreams on hold to have a family due to this pandemic, but we want you to have all of the data possible. By enrolling in this observational study, we will all be able to learn more together. Fora is the only clinic in Austin on the Steering Committee and working towards helping us all learn more. If you are over age 18, between 4-10 weeks pregnant, and have not received a COVID vaccine you are eligible to participate.
