Axia Women’s Health is committed to ensuring the safety and well-being of our patients, clinicians, and employees amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, and we are continuing to respond to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and Department of Public Health from each state. Visit this page frequently for updates on how Axia Women’s Health is responding to the crisis and how we are ensuring the health of those in our patient community.
While our offices do not plan to administer the COVID-19 vaccine, we understand that our patients have many questions regarding the vaccine and its safety, especially during pregnancy. We’ve pulled together a dedicated page devoted to the topic of vaccination, dispelling common myths regarding the vaccines, and sharing links to research and information to help you make an informed decision regarding its safety. As always, we encourage our patients to discuss their concerns directly with their healthcare provider. Axia Women’s Health remains here for you during this time. Read more about the vaccines here.
The Society of Breast Imaging recommends scheduling your screening mammogram prior to your first dose of a COVID-19 vaccination OR 4-6 weeks following the second dose of a COVID-19 vaccination. Doing so will help to avoid incorrect results. However, if you have a concern, you should still seek care and speak with your physician.
Now that we better understand the risks and spread of COVID-19, we are more prepared than ever to help ensure a safe environment for patients to access care. Our care centers are taking the following precautions, as well as requiring participation from patients, to minimize exposure and help you feel confident in receiving the quality OB/GYN care you deserve.
To improve access to care during this difficult time, we have launched AxiaConnect telemedicine as an opportunity to help complete appointments without risking patient exposure. AxiaConnect is secure, HIPAA-compliant, and allows patients to connect to their provider easily via videoconference (from computer, tablet, or phone) from the comfort of their home.

The best way to prevent infection is to avoid being exposed. There are simple everyday preventive actions to help prevent the spread of any respiratory viruses. These include:
The CDC believes the virus may appear between 2-14 days after exposure, and that the virus is spread person to person mainly by respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. This is similar to other respiratory pathogens like influenza. For more information, visit:
Many of the hospitals that we deliver at have instituted new guidelines and protocols to reduce exposure and limit the spread of COVID-19, particularly in the Labor & Delivery Units. Please check your hospital’s website directly to understand their policies.
Axia Women’s Health will continue working to meet the current challenge in order to ensure our patients receive the quality of care they deserve in a safe, comfortable environment.
