Danielle Discusses Concerns With Being Pregnant During COVID-19 [LISTEN]
As the novel coronavirus spreads across the U.S., so does the concern. Being a first time mom, I already have a ton of questions and concerns about how to go about this new thing called parenting. Add the coronavirus situation into the mix and it takes things to another level. What will the situation be like come the end of June when I'm about to deliver? Will my hospital be full? Who will be allowed in the delivery room with me? Is it safe to go to the the grocery store? Those are just a few of the many questions left unanswered.
Being pregnant during the corona craziness has certainly been interesting. Pregnant women have weakened immune systems. With a virus going around, that's not a great place to be. It puts me (and other moms-to-be) in the at-risk category for contracting the virus. My work team has kicked me out of the office and I've been working from home for extra precaution. Basically, things that I would have never thought I would have to consider, I've found my self having to have plans for.
I had a chat with Brain & Courtlin about the concerns of being pregnant with the current circumstances. You can hear that conversation HERE. And if you're expecting a little one, what are some of your concerns? Let's talk about it! Send me a message in the KHAK app.
It hasn't been all worry, though. Josh and I were lucky enough to celebrate our baby shower with our friends and family in St. Louis before things got crazy. You can check out some photos from it below. It was a plaid, woods, lumberjack theme because, well, that's who this kid's parents are. :)
