Navigating COVID-19 Resources for Pregnant and Postpartum Families

This resource is meant to provide guidance for families on how to plan for pregnancy, labor, and the postpartum period during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic. Due to the current public health emergency, navigating our health system may be difficult at this time. Resources within this toolkit include how to prepare for delivery, postpartum & infant health information, and how to apply for public benefits. [Spanish Version Coming soon!]




Virtual Doula Toolkit

This toolkit is meant to provide doulas with the tools needed to provide virtual doula services to clients. Given that the current recommendations suggest that we practice social distancing, and that hospitals are limiting the number of individuals who may be present at birth during this pandemic, virtual doula services are a way to provide support and guidance to families without jeopardizing health and safety.
