The Check-In: Childbirth During Pandemic

May 27, 2020

Some of us are planners. We plan everything to the last detail and we like to be prepared. And that has complicated life events like childbirth during this time of pandemic uncertainty.

An expectant mother's “birth plan” and the decisions leading up to the birth are a big deal right now with constantly evolving standards set by hospitals, including limitations on visitors, recommended early inductions and covid tests before the big day.

In this episode we talk about planning a childbirth and actually giving birth during a pandemic.  

Our guests:

Dr. Courtney Barnes, OB/GYN whose research specialties include lactation and low-intervention births.

Katy Miller, midwife.
