“I’m seeing postpartum families coping in lots of different ways—some are very overwhelmed, especially first-time parents,” shared Barbara Heid, Maven Doula, in this week’s Ask Maven Anything. “Early hospital discharge and lack of hands-on support from family and friends is creating this perfect storm of anxiety and stress for already emotionally and physically exhausted parents.”
Listen in to the April 16th live Q&A with experts in our Ask Maven Anything webinar series focused on navigating postpartum care, along with the latest for women and families. Our panel of experts shared tips for postpartum families, discussed how fertility experts and clinics are preparing for post-COVID treatments, and answered Maven members’ questions about home births and more.
In our next virtual roundtable on Thursday, April 23rd at 12p ET / 9a PT, we’ll focus on fertility for National Infertility Awareness Week: register here.
“Given that the new normal is going to be a world with COVID-19 in it, we really need to start planning and start acting,” explained Dr. Brian Levine, Reproductive Endocrinologist, on how fertility experts are planning for resuming treatments and seeing patients in the near future. “And the planning is, how do you treat patients with an ongoing pandemic preventing transmission of disease to patients and to providers and staff? And how do you make sure that you’re doing the best practices for your patients?”
