I often wonder why American women, who have ease of access to hospitals, have not adopted the concept of home births with a certified Nurse Midwife/Obstetrician?
I gave birth at Martha Jefferson on Thursday 4/2/20. I felt safe and completely at ease the entire length of my stay. Each and every nurse and doctor is top notch and practices the absolute best safety and sanitation skills.
Yes, at this point in time only 1 support person is allow during your length of stay. It was actually our silver lining to be just US. We will never have 3 days to just ourselves again. It was so nice to not worry about guests and only having to focus on recovery and our baby girl. We were able to FaceTime our families as we chose.
Yes, my husband, myself, and every single person you come into contact with must wear a mask.
When my husband and I were alone with our baby we would take our masks off to be closer to each other and our little girl.
I will never have a baby anywhere else!
I hope this can bring a peace of mind and ease to any expectant mamas delivering at Martha Jefferson soon....It was a beautiful experience and I am so thankful we are all HEALTHY and home now ♥️

What about min wage? If the state can’t pay their workers more how can the private sector?
he won't stop until he has screwed everyone in the state!
Lord coonman due us all a favor and please resign.
Pay the teachers you idiot they deserve it and freeze tuition. State worker raises when emergency is over.Simple as that.
Bet everyone who voted for him are regretting it now..... What a Idiot
He seems a little over reactive since there hasn’t even been data showing when things can re open again
Some skelton staff should be at DMV. I hot a letter from DMC suspending my license as of April 26 because I did nor mail back a requested document. Bull. I mailed the document over a month ago two days after I received it to verify I had liability insurance. I am 70 years old and have never been with full insurance. There is no one to contact. I called and just a recording that DMV is closed at least until April 23rd. That is an essential agency. A skeleton staff could be left and stay the required distance apart. They use computers for their work.
He should not postpone anything. The state should be able to afford raises since he decided to close down businesses because of virus so that means the state must not have any problem with money. Along with the ABC Store staying open with the state still making money. The way he's shutting down everything in Virginia I assume that the state must have plenty of money so there's no reason why he cannot continue with raises. All the states that are shutting down businesses because of the virus in about two or three months they are going to get reality check when they realize there is no money to run their state including the state of Virginia
Oh hell no we need that money
No surprise there....such an embarrassment to Virginia.
What a surprise😒 First ones to get a cut.
What about the rainy day fund, or as I call it slush fund.
For all the normal people in Virginia I am truly sorry yall got this but job running your state
So how's that working out for ya. Vote Democrat and this is what you get.
i want my money sir! we're already working without evoking hazard pay and now no raise....sigh.
Gotta get the money somewhere for all the unemployment claims....
Where is all the money go that these colleges charge to go to school and in a month and a half there belly up just don't and up
I call bs
Vt Bud Fox
Sports and presidents salaries as well as numerous building contracts. No due diligence.
Poor colleges cant rip off anyone during the Covid crisis. I'm heartbroken
how many billions do these poor colleges have in their slush funds?
How do they think the parents who pay the tuition feel?
CEO put it in there banks bunch of crooks
Well at the rate they pump out Communists, I think it's great if they all shut down.
Don't feel sorry in the least bit. College is too expensive and students can't pay their loans now.
Look into what they call conspiracy theorists
College is an industry and certainly athletic programs add millions to their coffers. But there is more to to it than that. Prior to the late 60s there were no college loans and if you wanted to go to college your family either had the money to send you, you qualified for scholarships, or you worked your way through it. In most cases you came out debt free. Today, since Big Brother is willing to loan you the money, regardless of family income, qualifications, or what you’re studying, they foot the bill through loans. And with somebody else footing the bill what happens? Colleges/universities go for the $$$ and why not, Big Brother is paying any way, and they don’t have to worry about chasing people down to get the money. So tuition and everything goes up, a career in teaching there becomes a lucrative deal, with tenure protecting you no matter what you do and there you go. Money talks, not education.
Oh well... next

They need to clean the place! Poor employees! Over the weekend place looked like it was filled to capacity with shoppers.
Every store should close on Sunday to give everyone rest from the hectic schedule they have been keeping
i hope all businesses do something extra for the essential employees that have gone into work during this whole epidemic. It would be disrespectful and a slap in the face if they didnt. if wasnt for thise employees businesses wouldn't be getting any money
I hope with pay.
They need to do this every Sunday.
That is a decision well deserved for the Employees...
Close grocery stores too!
Wtf dont people get about stay the hell home
Biglots is to!
I'm glad to see that they are doing this for us. As a Lowe's Employee we have been through a lot in the last few weeks. We have been Cursed at and a lot worse. We are Thankful to still have a job but on the other hand wish people would respect the 6ft Distance and stay home and order online. I know at least 20 times a day I have to ask customers to stay 6ft back. Easter off will be a well deserved day for all Lowe's Employees. Please Think about the Essential Workers if you go out to do shopping and please give them a break and say Thank You b/c the customer does not see what we go through on daily basis.
Good for them. Hope many more businesses follow their lead.
This is a great, maybe they should start doing it every Sunday. If god built this world in 6 days then we can keep his sabbath.
Should be closed every Easter
Should be limiting how many people go into Lowe's
Maybe all businesses of this type should close 1 day a week during this so their employees can get a break!
Lowe’s should close the entire weekend!
WAY too many people and crowds buying absolutely non essential items at Lowe’s right now.
How about all those empty dorm rooms on the UVA campus?
The city of C-ville has urged landlords to go easy on tenants if they can’t pay their rent this month, and now this group wants landlords to offer up their properties for the homeless at a reduced rate. What makes everyone think landlords can absorb the costs caused by this pandemic?
UVA has tons of space.
Theres a way Charlottesville could do this .They just dont want too. UVA has plenty of space !!!
Use the schools ..
Did they ask the Governor? It's literally his job to take care of his citizens. Northam just said he was going to take care of the homeless. Ask him when & how.
Instead of people say use this place use that place get out there and help! We're all in this crap together!
We are so grateful to our community for their love and support. Each of you makes our shifts a little brighter. Thank you !!!!
My Granddaughter works there in the ED at Sentara and I live too far away to be able to do this, I am very very grateful to all thoes who are doing this for them. She tells me how much they have been enjoying the meals and all the love they are getting from the community.
My fear here is that people will be more apt to go out. The only mask that will protect you is the N95. Anything else will protect others from you. People need to just stay home!
You cant get masks anywhere so what is the point of this ?? Doctors and nurses having a hard enough time getting them then they reccomend we all wear them..great then send them to americans rather than have people going everywhere now trying to find them.
Another thread of germ spreading idiots 🙄
Ignore this post by the CDC, & do what I say, because I know stuff....
How rhetorical! This has to be bs. We have been told this whole time not to wear a mask unless you have compromised immune system or are sick because otherwise medical personnel need them but now all of a sudden NBC's claiming that the CDC recommends everybody wear a mask really? So which is it? And what happened to most masks aren't even effective against this virus? Wow!
Boy, the ignorance is really showing with some of these comments!
Some people don't seem to realize that the CDC has it's own Facebook page, Website, Twitter and whatnot. You can follow the CDC yourself if you want to.
Worst part is CDC has no clue!
I say stay at home unless you NEED to go out . If you go out cover up you can make a mask out of almost anything. And beforr someone says only the N95 helps we know this but something is better than nothing .
HEPA filters and the blue shop towels can be used for filters in an olson type mask.You can use either a vacuum cleaner type of a furnace type to make multiple masks.https://www.unitypoint.org/cedarrapids/filesimages/Coronavirus/Olson Mask with Pattern v4.pd
Its in the water droplets in our breath or when we talk. So... Just put your big girl/ boy panty's on and buckle up for safety
Well if you could buy them somewhere it would be nice! Along with cleaning supplies! You can’t even find anything to clean with in any stores! What a joke!
You know what’s just as bad as the virus? All the hateful people on here arguing over who’s right or wrong! Wake up ! The one reason this is happening! Evil in the world!
It isnt so much to protect yourself but to slow the spread. Wearing a mask wont protect you simply by stopping the virus from entering..but its obvious that if having a mask on you wont be inclined to touch your face and mouth as much therefore you cant get whatever else you've touched from your fingers to your mouth or face..and also will slow the spread by if you have the virus and dont know it and cough or sneeze..the droplets cannot go into the air
Awww 2 people cried aint that sad, im guessing the whole "guns are the problem" theory didnt work out huh? So many guns sold in such a short time and not 1 single mass shooting 🤔 guess the democrats are going to have to to think up a new strategy 😂😂
Stupid is as stupid does.
Who would have thought so many dummies didn’t have protection already .
Ive been waiting for a post about guns to show up on Facebook. Took longer than I expected
If it makes them happy.
Are they going to wipe their butts with them from lack of toilet paper.
Toilet paper, guns, and booze. Sounds like Joe Exotic’s shopping list tbh.
Awesome the sweet sound of freedom!
Might as well get a little target practice since they shut everything else down.
Admittedly, I have never been too fond of guns but this thing keeps getting worse and worse. Who knows where this may go. I bought my “just in case” gun last week.
I bet chief gun grabber Brackney has her panties in a bunch.She goes to congress and says people don’t need guns.Corona virus hits and everyone in America gives her the finger.🤣🤣🤣
Question for the ammosexuals... is the government coming for your guns right now? They have you locked down and following orders, yet they’re not coming for your guns, are they?
So, sit down, shut up, and play with your masculinity compensating utility.
We don’t care about your guns, we care when psychos use them.
Unite the Right rally in C'ville was a dry run for preparations for a Kristallnacht National insurgency before the 2020 elections.
Go on and buy those guns and maybe you can just shoot the virus! And if you run out of money for food maybe someone else will buy your guns to help you out.
Love the smell of freedom!
Conservatives thinking : I need guns in case if corona comes to me. I need to shoot corona.
I would be curious to see the gender split of all these gun purchasers. I would bet it is +95% males purchasing them. To quote Shrek "do you think he's compensating for something?"
This warms my heart ❤️
In other news, water remains wet...
Im scared for the one’s on here that are upset over the gun sales because you may be letting some of these newly released criminals that just hit the streets know who’s house to hit if things really get bad 🤷♂️.... Everyone stay safe out there !!!!
I’d like to know the underlying health condition of these deaths....dying with Covid and dying from Covid are two completely different things
I wish the Va department of health would release the numbers of those who have recovered.. It would be nice to know how many active cases there are in the counties instead of just the overall total.

Seriously, most people in Charlottesville do not understand 6 feet. I have to keep backing away from people and they don't seem to get that hint either. I need a back up tshirt! But once I get my mask, maybe that will help. Please do a story showing people how to act in public!
Do they take into account people that have to commute to other cities for work ?
I drove by Lowe's yesterday and could have told you this.
Aren't kids using hotspots for schoolwork?
Staunton with one infection and an F demonstrates that just like pollsters in the last election the “experts” and modelers can’t seem to get close to any correct conclusions!
That's because everyone is at Lowe's.

I think many people are clueless
If by data you mean location monitoring. Wonder how they know who is essential and must go to work versus nonessential. Not really a fair assessment in my opinion.
You’re all fine that your phone data is being used to track you. Wake up Cville. This is only the beginning.
I have been trying to use the floor tiles to let me know how far away I need to be away
WVIR NBC29 does this take into account essential workers traveling? There are many more manufacturing facilities and agricultural activities in Staunton than Charlottesville and may explain the poor grade. Can you do some additional research/reporting?
Nobody in Staunton stays home and they all stand around in groups talking. It is crazy.
Some people act like they don't even know about the Social Distancing. I am a Essential Worker and I asked a group of 4 to please move b/c I had to get down my Aisle and we had to be 6 ft apart and the response 1 lady gave me was " Well Good Luck With That" People like that make it hard to stop the spread of this Virus. The Government needs to step up and start holding people responsible. We need this Virus to go away. Lowe's is bad for people to gather and talk in groups.
I'm glad they are doing this for us. I had a super tall guy, young and well dressed, reach above me to get drinks. I was in his armpit the whole time he was grabbing drinks. I had to back up 6 or so feet to get away from him. There were some real looks of disbelief being shot at him by me and other shoppers. He left the isle pretty quickly after he noticed all the eyes on him. Oblivious, self-centered people should shop online.
I was at Kroger Rio hill this morning. Most of the people working did not have masks and were not social distancing.
Hope they do better than WALMART
Well go to Lowe's I went Saturday and it was so many poeple in their.I was so glad to get out of their.Not going back
Probably won’t see much difference. This is a decrease from the maximum allowed in. Not 50 percent less than are usually in there. Wal Mart reduced theirs by 20 percent. At the one I go to 500 customers are allowed in at a time now. Rarely gets that busy.
All these stores should have done this a month ago. Maybe we could have cut out some of these cases.
Agree with you, people are so disrespectful
So lets jus have them crowded outside...
Mask or don't come in
Multiple employees at Barracks Rd Kroger today with no masks.
I am thankful the stores are open, we have the freedom to shop for essentials, and appreciate the employees working.
Lowe's Employees have asked so many times for the number of people to be reduced in there and they won't do it. The Employees are taking a risk everyday by going into work and some Customers have even Cussed the Employees out when asked to stand 6ft back. The Employees are very Thankful to have their jobs but they also want to feel safe while being there. Yes they can wear a mask if there was any bit also you don't realize how hot it gets in there by going up and down ladders for 8 hours or more and that makes it hard to breath in a mask. Please give Essential Employees their space when you go shopping their life is at risk for 8 hours a day or more.
i bet teeter is next
It’s a shame when a FF in uniform was buying groceries for his shift (dinner) was only allowed to buy one pack of meat that is pitiful!
I ordered groceries to be delivered from Wegmans and I never got them. I have been trying to call there service user to only be told I have to wat 300 minutes for someone to get to me on hold!!! Called Wegmans to only be told I have to call the service they use!! I hope Belicia my delivery enjoyed my groceries because she was the one who was supposed to have delivered them. Got a text saying she was in my drive way and I was sitting in my yard and not sure where she was but not in my driveway. Just beware, because if they screw up you cant reach no one!!

It’s difficult to take seriously anything Governor Blackface Infanticide says.
He needs to ride thru Charlottesville.... Lowe’s & Walmart look like Black Friday with the stores packed
Until he shuts this state down for 2 weeks...like the next 2 weeks that are critical...then he has nothing valuable to offer to this fight. I really think he needs to come work with me one night on the Covid unit...just one night.
Why aren't they collecting recovery numbers?
54 deaths and 20 of those are at one nursing home in Richmond SMH
Doesnt fit their agenda
Why haven’t he shut down the lottery to keep people home and from visiting stores 2-4 times a day.
Too soon for Virginia
Not to mention, the reports from VDH have to be slow to catch up to reality. Case in point, they are reporting 11 deaths in the Central Health Planning Region, when there have been 20 deaths at one nursing home in Henrico and that is assuming that there are 0 deaths in the rest of the counties in the Central region, of which there are 22 counties and 5 cities:
And another thing, we have to start catching up with the testing. The President said yesterday that 1,670,000 Americans have been tested. They have tested roughly 300,000 in NY. Why has Virginia only been able to test 24,500 people? The testing here is severely inadequate this late in the game, especially for health care workers. While I realize NY is a bigger state, it is not 12 times bigger, no where near it, as their population is approx 20.5 million and VA is approx 8.7 million. The doctors even mentioned Washington D.C. as a potential new "hotspot" at the press conference yesterday. And of course, experts agree that the virus is just starting in VA vs what is going on in NY, but shouldn't their situation serve as proof that we need to "get ahead of it" so we aren't in the same place a month from now? Get it together, Virginia!
