Yes, at this time, Vida is making efforts to minimize exposure and reduce transmission of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) to our patients, clients and staff. As a result, Vida Support Services is closed. Support Services will respond to voicemails during regular business hours. All appointments in Vida Medical Clinic must be scheduled with a nurse over the phone. Appointment dates and times are limited. No support persons will be allowed in the clinic. Nurses will be asking the following questions before scheduling an appointment:
- Do you have a fever, or have you had a fever in the last 14 days?
- Do you have any symptoms of a lower respiratory illness (cough, difficulty breathing, etc.), or have you had any of these symptoms within the last 14 days?
- Have you traveled outside of the United States or to any high risk area as identified by the Center for Disease Control and updated daily on the list found at the following link cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travels/index.html ?
- Have you had close contact with a person who has a confirmed case of the COVID-19 disease? Or, have you had close contact with a person who exhibited symptoms of a lower respiratory illness (cough, difficulty breathing, etc.) within the last 14 days?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, Vida will be unable to schedule an appointment. Individuals with an apparent mild illness will be encouraged by the nurse to contact their healthcare provider by phone for guidance about clinical management or an agency designated to handle potential COVID-19 patients. Individuals who report severe symptoms such as difficulty breathing, will be directed to seek care immediately.

Vida, formerly Mother and Unborn Baby Care [MUBC], is a 501(c)3 not for profit organization. Vida was founded in 1983 by 5 passionate advocates for the good health and well-being of women and their babies. As they sat around their kitchen table, they were determined to establish a non-profit organization that would help women who were facing an unplanned pregnancy by providing free advocacy and education services. Vida’s main objective then and now is to walk with women through trials and tribulations by offering hope and compassion. Vida firmly believes women and men should be empowered to make life affirming decisions. Vida makes no judgements about past or present decisions to parent, place for adoption or abort. Each choice can weigh heavily on the heart. We have been here ready to help since 1983. We will continue to expand and improve our services so that no man or woman feels alone and unsupported when facing challenges related to an unplanned pregnancy, parenting an infant or small children, or sexual integrity.

"You helped me when I was 16. I was a mess. I’m so thankful for this place. I’m not going to lie-I could have gone another way, but seeing that life in me made all the difference."
"I was actually surprised at how often they were sensitive and respectful to my very mixed feelings. It was amazing seeing the heartbeat and also got to find out the gestational age."
"As a young girl, I was embarrassed to admit I may have an STD and did not want to seek treatment/testing. Thank you for providing a safe and comfortable place for women like me to go."
