Virtual & In-Home Resources For Pregnant and Postpartum Parents In The NC Triangle
Updated: Mar 26, 2020
Life has changed for everyone due to the threat of COVID-19. We all feel unsettled and mildly anxious, but if you are expecting a baby in the near future you may be feeling more than a little anxious. Hospital restrictions, class cancelations, office closures, and social distancing may have you wondering how in the world you will manage your transition into parenthood. Take a deep breath. It will be ok.
At our core, all birth workers, counselors, personal trainers, and educators are faithful community servants and nothing, not even the inability to meet in person, is going to stop us from serving you.
That is why I have put together a directory of community resources that you may find helpful or necessary during your pregnancy and postpartum period.
All of these resources are offered online or in-home- allowing you and your baby to stay safe and healthy. Most of these are also local resources so when this period of social distancing comes to an end you will be able to move your virtual connections back into the physical world. This also allows you to support local business owners during this challenging season.
If you have any questions about these resources or if you have a resource that you would like to see added to the list please email firstname.lastname@example.org
