COVID-19 Updates: Fall Semester

Obstetrical Care during Summer Sessions-Middlebury

Porter Women’s Health is available to care for Language School and Bread Loaf students who are pregnant during their time in Middlebury, on a limited basis. 

For women who have established pregnancy care prior to the summer session, Porter Women’s Health requires all records to be received and reviewed prior to scheduling an appointment.  They have limited slots available for routine prenatal visits, so specific schedule requests may not be possible. If you do require routine prenatal care while in Middlebury, most of the obstetrical care is provided by Certified Nurse Midwives.

If your pregnancy is considered “high risk”, we encourage you to discuss with your health care provider whether you should consider delaying your study for this session.  If you enroll in this session, we encourage you to establish care with the Maternal Fetal Medicine Clinic at the University of Vermont Medical Center (1 hour away in Burlington, VT). 

If you are scheduled to be in Middlebury at the time of your anatomy ultrasound (usually done between 18-22 weeks of pregnancy), we recommend traveling home for this, if possible, or having your provider order the ultrasound at the Fetal Diagnostic Center (located at the University of Vermont Medical Center). 

Please remember to travel with copies of your most up to date records.

Emergency care for pregnancy-related complications is available 24 hours/7 days a week via the Porter Hospital Emergency Department and Birthing Center.
