Pregnancy and Pandemic Updates
You may have heard that the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently added pregnancy to its list of conditions that put people at greater risk of serious illness from the coronavirus. We want to acknowledge that these are stressful times and reassure you that Clinic Sofia continues to take measures with your utmost safety in mind.
Pregnancy During a Pandemic
Dr. Amy Hammers navigated pregnancy during a pandemic along with her patients and shared her experience prior to delivery.
Giving Birth During a Pandemic
COVID-19 first appeared on Molly Bukoskey’s radar screen when her two-year-old son was hospitalized in January for RSV and pneumonia, but the thought that she would be delivering a baby during a global pandemic really hit home when she started to hear about the restrictions New York hospitals were placing on partners in the delivery room and overall visitors.
Life after Baby: The Unexpected
While most postpartum manuals focus on babies, “Unexpected” examines the issues many new parents struggle to talk about: stitches, C-section recovery, cramping and bleeding, pooping and peeing, sex, birth control, mental health, bonding and the various ways to feed babies.
Update from Clinic Sofia
When Dr. Jewelia Wagner called her 90-year-old grandmother recently, she asked if she had ever experienced something like the pandemic in her nine decades. Her grandma replied, “no never.”
“Sometimes it’s hard to know how to respond or what to think in these crazy times, but you have to count your blessings and enjoy the family you can spend time with right now,” added Dr. Wagner, mom to four girls ages 5 to 19, who are all home now. “We’ve got this and we’ll get through this.”
