  1. I have 2 months till I’m due and I’m terrified… financially, health wise, emotionally… this is such a scary time to bring a child into the world. I’m so lucky my obgyn has been so kind and understanding

  2. My niece was born in the middle of this and still haven’t seen her plus I have a 5 month old son and won’t let him around anyone

  3. My fiancé and I had been trying for nearly 4 years and had 4 losses. We’re now in the home stretch with 8 weeks or less to go. I’m terrified at the probability of doing this alone and him missing the birth of his first child. We’re both essential workers as well. So though I’m lucky to be able to work from home he doesn’t have this luxury.

  4. I’m due in June and I’m terrified what might happen in 2 months. I’ve seriously considered giving birth at home. I can’t be separated from my children. And I’m afraid of going to the hospital and contracting the virus while there. So I’ve stopped going to all my check ups, this is my second child and had no issues with my first. Went completely natural with my first and no epidural. I’m hoping this time around will be faster and easier since I know what to expect 🤞

  5. Breastfeeding can only help to make your baby strong. If possible, women having babies right now (and always) should try to feed that way. Stay safe everyone!

  6. For the longest time no family members were there for the birth. Even 50 years ago there were no dads in the delivery room. It was common situations shown on TV shows as the nervous father waited outside. People need to readjust attitudes or risk death.

  7. Thanks so much for this Dr Phil. I’m in Australia & things aren’t as bad here yet, but they will be! We have been in isolation for 17 days now by choice. (Husband has immune deficiency), but many in the big cities are being ignorant idiots. It’s only going to get worse. I appreciate your honest, non political approach.

  8. This seriously kills me!!! My heart is so broken for family’s who are going through such a beautiful moment in such a crazy and complicated time!! Prayers going out to those families!!!❤️❤️❤️
