This is time of great uncertainty.
But your birth and baby will not wait for this to pass.
You can't "pivot" and give birth virtually.
And you definitely can't social distance when it comes to your baby.
Preparing for a new baby probably seems extremely overwhelming right now.
Your family can't come stay with you for two weeks to help you get settled in.
Friends can't drop by with a meal and hold the baby while you shower.
You postpartum doula can't come to your house.
And the line between maternity leave and working from home gets blurrier by the hour.
Suddenly, what seemed like a simple postpartum plan, now seems damn near impossible.
How will you survive with just yourself and your partner and no help from family?
How do you adjust when it comes to being pregnant and postpartum during a pandemic?
Don't worry, you still have options.
The Prima Doula offers virtual postpartum support.
I know that you would much rather have in person support right now.
But when it comes to your postpartum wellness, only you can decide whether in person support is right for your family at this time.
If you had to chose, would you pick no support or the virtual support of a postpartum doula for 8 weeks after you give birth (plus 3 hours of prenatal planning and education!)?
