FREE EVENT

Planning Ahead If You’re Pregnant,
Giving Birth, or Parenting Little Ones Right Now.

 

Tuesday, March 17th at 11AM Pacific / 2PM Eastern

 

Parenting or giving birth in the next few weeks or months? Join us as we talk about navigating the upcoming disruptions.

If you’re parenting, pregnant or going to give birth in the next few months, this coming season with coronavirus and COVID-19 is definitely going to be challenging. We’re here to talk about the coming disruptions, to help answer any questions you might have, and to help you brainstorm new ideas and solutions for childcare, birth prep, support needs, and of course, your sanity.

Some of the questions on our mind:

  • How do we plan for childcare coverage when schools and daycares are being shut down?
  • What does it look like to adjust your birth plan if you’re pregnant and due very soon? What are your options and what considerations should you have?
  • What are the real risks to pregnant women and what are the precautions we need to take?
