Infectious disease prevention


Every time we turn on the tv or radio we are inundated with reports on the current COVID-19 outbreak.  You may have heightened concerns regarding the health and safety of your new baby and your family.


I assure you that the safety of your baby and family is always my top priority.  

​As some of you know, one of my past careers was a Home Care Nurse (six years).  During the SARS  epidemic of 2003, I was working for Saint Elizabeth Health Care.  Travelling home to home to care for clients.  Most of which were elderly, terminally ill, had compromised immune systems or were nursing moms with newborns.  We were taught proper hand-washing and disinfecting of surfaces techniques to ensure we kept our clients safe.  To this day, I still implement the same techniques I was taught  to ensure the utmost safety of my newborn clients and their families, and mine!


As a reassurance to parents and myself, I will be getting a Covid test monthly.  Test results on August 27, 2020 were negative.

 Here at Shutterbug Imaging we have always been and will continue to be pro-active in our infectious disease prevention:

  • For all sessions, I will be wearing a mask.  For all in home sessions, I will also be wearing gloves and an isolation gown
  • All props are thoroughly washed and sanitized between clients
  • There will be a minimum of 72 hours between clients
  • All newborn clothing, wraps, and anything that comes into contact with baby are thoroughly washed and sanitized after every session
  • Anything that can not be washed is sprayed with a natural disinfectant and placed outside in the sun to kill germs
  • Before I pack for every session, I do a thorough hand washing with soap and water
  • Before I enter your home, my hands are  sterilized with hand-sanitizer and I will remove my shoes
  • Before I handle your baby, I will ask to wash my hands with soap and water, continued hand washing and sanitizing will occur during the session
  • Sessions will be rescheduled if anyone in my household or yours is sick or displaying any signs of illness
  • I am doing my best to stay informed about the virus and steps for prevention through reputable and informed sources like the World Health OrganizationOntario Public Health and Durham Region Public Health
  • You may read more about how I ensure the safety of your newborn here


How you can help to stop the spread of infectious diseases

To minimize the risk of infection, everyone should take these necessary infection prevention measures.

  • Wash your hands frequently, using soap and water for at least 40 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom, before eating, and after blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing. If soap and water are not readily available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched household objects and surfaces, using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe
  • I ask that you please practice Social Distancing and request that you wear as mask when not possible to Social DIstance.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick. Stay at least two metres away from anyone who is coughing
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
  • When coughing or sneezing, cover your mouth and nose with a tissue (or your bent elbow/sleeve if a tissue is not available)
  • Remain informed from reliable sources, as listed above
  • Please contact me if you or your family members are sick, feeling unwell and/or have a fever. I ask that you either reschedule, or choose to not to include photos with the sick person at this time
  • Individuals should be fever-free for at least 24 hours without the aid of medications such as Tylenol or Advil
  • If you or someone you have been in contact with has recently traveled outside of Ontario, I ask you to please contact me to discuss. 
    ​You may be asked to wait a 2 week period prior to your session if you have travelled to or have been in contact with someone who has recently travelled to a 
    High Risk  area as identified by public health
