Being pregnant can be a challenge in itself, but being pregnant during COVID, now that takes pregnancy to a whole new level.

Let’s be frank here, 2020 has not been the best year for most people. It is okay to say that life during COVID has been crazy and unpredictable. We have come to an era where it is now socially unacceptable to not wear a mask when you are out. Nobody could have predicted where 2020 was going. But imagine all of the chaos of everything being virtual, wearing a mask, limiting numbers on everything, and then finding out that you are pregnant during a pandemic.

Whether you are pregnant with your first child or your third child, being pregnant during COVID can be scary, challenging, and honestly a struggle. Pregnant moms now have to be extra cautious going to appointments, going to the grocery store, and even stressing over who will be in the delivery room. There are also pregnant women in the Roanoke Valley, who are testing positive for COVID. Coronavirus is a stressful and scary illness.

If this resonates with you, it is okay to be honest about the situation at hand. Don’t worry though, because you are not alone. Healthy Families Roanoke can help support you, answer your questions and help you prepare for the arrival of your baby.

Healthy Families is a home visiting service that helps strengthen the bond between baby and parent. We use an evidence-based curriculum that explores healthy development and milestones. If you are struggling in other areas, we can help guide you in finding resources.
