Finding Support During COVID-19
How are you finding support in this time of isolation? Personally, FaceTime and Marco Polo and Zoom have become my best friends. Just seeing the faces of people I love move in real time has become so important.
Sometimes though, that amazing friend and family support isn’t quite enough. I am super grateful that my therapist was able to adapt to tele-health appointments because man, those have been crucial. Did you know that a lot of pregnancy and postpartum support groups, like the ones at The Womb Room in Baltimore, have gone virtual? I’ll admit it’s not the same as in-person, but I’ve found so much support in digital meet-ups like the Friday Fireside chats with Mother Honestly. It’s strange how connecting with a group of total strangers over a shared experience or feeling via Zoom can make you feel less alone.
