My daughter is 28 weeks pregnant and at this point she can not have the baby in Hattiesburg because they will not allow her husband (or anyone else)to be there. She is going have my precious grandson in a small county hospital just so her husband can be there! I think this rule is unnecessary if everyone involved is prepared to follow all precautions!!!

I am 40 weeks pregnant this week too and the possibility of this happening is what has kept us quarantined for weeks now. This reality is unacceptable. No mother should be forced to labor without her partner and no baby should be separated due to a positive rapid test, which have been shown to not be accurate.

I was almost put in this same situation when having my twins. I feel like even the three(mother, father and child should be isolated together if anything!
