Pregnant Chloe Sevigny Reacts to NYC’s Ban on Birthing Partners in the Delivery Room During Pandemic

Chloe Sevigny is currently pregnant with her first child and when she gives birth next month, her boyfriend Sinisa Mackovic won’t be allowed in the delivery room.

New York-Presbyterian hospitals have a new policy amid the current health crisis that bans partners from being in the delivery in hopes of minimizing the virus outbreak.

“At this time, no visitors including birthing partners and support persons are permitted for obstetric patients,” the hospital said. “We understand that this will be difficult for our patients and their loved ones, but we believe that this is a necessary step to promote the safety of our new mothers and children.”

“Pregnant in corona time,” Chloe wrote in hashtag format on Instagram. She added, “I hope all expecting families are finding some calm. Today’s news in NY was very distressing for all.”

Last week, Chloe and her boyfriend were spotted walking around New York City in protective gear.
