Just like you, we are closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and heeding the advice of the CDC, WHO, local officials and health agencies. Our top priority is supporting your safety and wellbeing, so we echo the CDC’s recommendations to wash your hands and maintain social distance. However, we also know that isolation and uncertainty can bring its own set of challenges, particularly for new mothers and working parents without childcare, who are all now trying to find a new normal. Our hearts and thoughts go out to each and every one of you. Below are some resources that we feel might be particularly helpful during this time. Please get in touch if there’s anything you would like us to address or include.
