We do not develop six packs or becomes a marathon runners without sore muscles along the way. Similarly, we cannot gain strength in our mental health without processing pain, sadness, and uncomfortable thoughts and feelings. The past few months of 2020 have certainly prompted discomfort as we learned to live in new ways and sat with our thoughts and feelings about the world and the humans who inhabit it. 

This is a distinctive time in all of our lives. Very few people alive today have lived through a global pandemic before now, and certainly none of the currently pregnant or newly pregnant people have. We are all navigating this together and for the very first time so we don’t know whether or not there is a “right” or “best” way to do it and if there is, what that might be.
