Navigating COVID-19 as a Parent: A Pediatrician’s Advice

Becoming a parent is one of the biggest transitions we make in our lifetime. We go from being responsible for ourselves to having the life of a tiny tiny baby in our hands. And then we have to nurture and grow this tiny baby into adulthood! The unknowns and fears can be very overwhelming, especially if you are a first time parent, and especially when a pandemic is underway. So today, let’s address your most pressing COVID questions from pregnancy through childhood.

I want to address some the common questions and fears new parents and parents-to-be have about COVID-19 as it relates to their health and the health of their children.
