This is just not fair! But at the same time, we understand that a pandemic of this sort is not anything most of us have ever experienced in our lives. So we err on the side of caution, we listen to the government and medical professionals, we quarantine ourselves in our homes and we avoid any unnecessary contact with the outside world.
But expectant families are facing some very real dilemmas. Not only have we lost the ability to bring our trusted birth doula into our birthing spaces in the hospital, but we have lost our chances to take all of those necessary birthing and parenting classes that we were looking forward to. Since we can't gather with other humans at this time, what are we to do? We can't turn to Facebook mom's groups for everything!
Thank goodness for platforms like Zoom and Google Hangouts, many birth and postpartum professionals and educators are creating virtual platforms to support pregnant families.
Here at Light in the Womb, we are offering Virtual HypnoBirthing classes, and a Virtual Preparing for the 4th Trimester class about bringing home baby and what to expect after you get home from the hospital and the weeks following your birth. We would love to hear from you! If we can help you along your journey in anyway, please reach out, we can schedule private consultations, can support you with private and group virtual classes, and even support you virtually during your birth and your postpartum time.
