Tammi Rohmer started this petition to Governor Newsom? Legislators?

Currently, expectant mothers are not allowed to have anyone accompany them to a prenatal Doctor appointment, a medically necessary early delivery, or the full term delivery of their baby. This is heart breaking and absolutely senseless. Doctors offices are much less populated than most super markets, coffee shops, and clothing stores, yet people can enter these establishments in pairs or groups. A doctors office is more sanitary, safe, and clean than any other facility typically visited. There are already parameters in place for mask wearing and disinfecting, as well as the ability to assess the health of any person entering the premises. The idea that any woman should have to go through the process of carrying a child, potentially dealing with difficult scenarios, and experiencing such a special, unique time alone is heartbreaking and unnecessary. There doesn’t seem to be any logical reason why every women cannot be allowed to have just one support person accompany her to any medical appointment. It would not be difficult to require the support person to be in good health, symptom free, and wear the necessary recommended face/hand coverings. This has been a gross error on the part of government in placing this restriction on expecting mothers and their spouses. Please sign this petition to insist that every expecting mother is permitted to have a support person accompany her to any medical appointment as needed through her pregnancy and delivery.
