Description

Pregnant women all over the world are facing tough choices as concerns rise around giving birth in a hospital where they are more likely to get exposed or contract the CoronaVirus.


What are the options for changing a birth plan? Can newborns contract COVID-19 from their mothers?


As many hospitals are limiting laboring women to have only one support person in the delivery room, expecting parents are wondering if they should avoid the risk and restrictions at hospitals and give birth at home, or elsewhere?


Rose talks to Kate Dirks, a nurse practitioner & midwife in Atlanta, Georgia who works in one of the busiest birthing centers in the United States about how COVID-19 has changed her practice, and what medical professionals are doing to protect new moms, new babies, and their staff.
