Kristen Seward’s First Hand Account Giving Birth During COVID-19

Kristen went into birth thinking it would look a lot like her previous birth— in a hospital, with midwives and a doula, and pain-medication free. However, after her 38 week appointment, the U.S. coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions went into place and she had to adjust her expectations and plans for birth. Connect with Kristen in our listener-supporters’ Facebook group by joining here.
