We are all wondering: what will the Pretty Happy Wild Koala Day May 3 2020 Shirt In addition,I will do this virus do to our babies and to our births? (In my avid news consumption, I uncovered even the smallest studies that indicated bleak, if unlikely, possibilities.) Will the baby get the virus? What would it mean to get sick with the changed immune system that comes with pregnancy? There are so few answers available. It’s still so early. We know that SARS (another Coronavirus) had a profound impact on pregnant women and babies. Thank goodness, COVID-19 isn’t looking like it does thus far. I’m based in Charleston, where our hospital system is already under strain. As the crisis unfolds, it is a clear possibility that our hospitals will be slammed by early summer. On March 20th, the New York Times projected that with “moderate” measures we would have a 51% infection rate (180,000 people) in Charleston County by June. This is our expected “peak”—and also my due date.

After many sleepless nights of refreshing my news feed until 2 or 3 a.m. and waking drenched in anxiety, I forced myself to stop compulsive news gathering. I put my phone on airplane mode at 10 p.m., lit the Pretty Happy Wild Koala Day May 3 2020 Shirt In addition,I will do this candles, filled the bath and settled in for a big read. I picked up a book recommended by a friend, The Positive Birth Book, by Milli Hill. Home birth is something that I had previously filed under “N/A,” but Hill’s book helped me understand exactly what happened to my body during my first birth and realize that even though I thought it was a great experience, it could have been even better. Quietly, and this time by daylight, I went further in my research. After texting with a few friends, I connected with Joanne Gottschall, a licensed midwife who delivers babies at home in our area. We talked at length. Not only did she reduce my anxiety and further demystify home birth for me, she helped address my biggest concern about what happens if and when something goes wrong. “Midwives are the experts in physiological pregnancy and birth,” she assured me. “If at any time the mom or the baby deviates from the norm, immediate action is taken.” She added that with low-risk pregnancies (which, thank goodness, so far I am), most problems can be seen well in advance, and that the majority of people who transfer to a hospital do so because they simply don’t wish to go on without pain medication, or because their labor stalls. In other words, it’s likely to be a more controlled process than the nightmare scenario I had previously envisioned: the baby coming out not breathing, the umbilical cord wrapped around the neck, or a sudden emergency for myself which would require a rush to the hospital…
