The constant news stream on the current Coronavirus outbreak can be overwhelming. New information is being shared hour by hour as we all attempt to find out as much as we can to protect ourselves and others.

 Stay informed with our up-to-date information on Coronavirus! 

Here are some tips to help get you through this volatile time:

Get knowledgeable

There is a fine line between staying informed and becoming frantic with worry. Yes, you should keep up with current recommendations on what to do and what not to do, what new information has been discovered, and things to do if you or a family member gets sick. However, do not get into the habit of constantly checking or watching the news all day and night long. With so many people home, there is an urge to mindlessly read the Twitter feeds and keep the news on 24/7, but resist it. Once you know the facts, keeping the doom and gloom circulating in your brain will only cause unnecessary worry and panic. Stress can negatively affect your pregnancy. Anxiety can also affect your ability to conceive

Entertainment ideas

With entertainment arenas closed, sports canceled, and Broadway and other shows shut down, the options for entertainment have greatly diminished. Luckily, there have been many creative minds that have prepared for ways to stay entertained while in isolation during the outbreak.

Exercises you can do at home

Staying fit and keeping up your exercise routine is very important during pregnancy and while TTC. There is no need to stop it but you may have to change it up a bit. If you have a stationary bike or treadmill, you may be able to transition your exercise routine right to your bedroom. However, if you prefer the feel of group activity, try an online exercise class and enjoy cardio, yoga, or dance

Check in with the instructor/service first to ensure that the class is safe for pregnancy. There are also countless pregnancy workouts on YouTube, but again, make sure the video is safe for pregnancy before you begin. In addition, on YouTube, there are also 100s of videos on meditation and yoga. Try them out; you might find they also help ease your mind.
