I'm really excited to share this week's birth story episode with you because it is especially timely right now. Since we are continuing to navigate the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to speak with someone who gave birth in these circumstances. I hope it gives all of the moms-to-be an idea of what to expect and a bit of reassurance.
Jessica Geocaris is our guest today and recently gave birth to her second child. She and her partner have a beautiful blended family of six kids, having just added their newborn son to their household.
Jessica and I talk about her prenatal care and how she prepared for her birth, especially as she could see the COVID-19 situation developing. We discuss her previous experience with preeclampsia and how this informed her decision to push for an induction at 37 weeks.
We also chat about what it was like at the hospital as the coronavirus pandemic was becoming bigger news in the US, how the staff made sure she had a good birth experience, and what it's been like having a brand-new baby with everything going on in the world.
