Liz moved to a new city just outside of NYC right before the Coronavirus outbreak really set it. It turned out that her new city, New Rochelle, was a hotspot for COVID19 and quickly earned the label of “containment zone.” Liz struggled through the end of her pregnancy with concerns about her husband not being allowed at her baby’s birth and with her being separated from their baby for 14 days if she tested positive for COVID19. Thankfully, neither of those things happened and Liz gave birth with the help of her doula virtually through FaceTime. Read more about her experience being pregnant in a containment zone at the beginning of the outbreak here.
