I'm guessing people will put self isolation and distancing on the back-burner and the government will close all the parks. People in this city just can't help themselves.


My flat overlooks a park and people seemed to do pretty well today - much better than they were doing on, say, the 24th or 25th. A few couples doing yoga together and a few people sitting by themselves for a short while, far from other people. The only people ostentatiously flouting the rules and meeting in a group was the usual clique of local druggies, who stay away from other people anyways.

Just one observation, of course, but it was encouraging to see. Hopefully other parks were similar.

Over here in Sweden has everyone taking it extremely well. All cafés, bars, gyms, stores are still open, although closing a bit earlier. Many people pretend as if this pandemic doesn't even exist.

I'm currently working at a psychosis unit in the city. We have absolutely no precautions for our patients or staff.

My partner just got off the phone with a midwife at the hospital who sounded super stressed. We were originally told to come in when she’s had three contractions in 10 minutes. Now they’re asking people to come in when they’ve had contractions every two minutes for two hours. She planned on only using gas and air throughout labor, but now that she won’t be in the hospital to receive it, we’ve ordered a TENS machine. I’m also not allowed to be with her until she’s in established labor, and I have to leave two hours after birth. They will test the baby six hours after.

How will staying at home longer change labor? Jenny? We’re guessing I’ll now have a more significant role to play in helping her stay calm and persevering through the pain. It sounds like nearly a home birth, which we had considered a few weeks ago. It was too late though and we had to change hospitals for it. Fifty percent of home births end up in the hospital anyway.

I highly recommend you both read the book Hypnobirthing. Staying at home shouldn't change labour at all, if you can both stay calm, focused, in the zone, and in sync with her body. I wanted a natural birth but never intended to do it at home;however, I DID labour mostly at home. By the time I got to the hospital I was already 5cm dilated and our baby came 6 hours later (I immediately asked for a morphine + gravol shot and had no more drugs the rest of my labour. I too opted for gas at the end but wasn't sucking on that tube right and don't think I got any. Helped with my breathing though! Lol). Home is way more comfortable anyway, you both will be much more relaxed in your own zone.

Our bodies are literally made for giving birth,just have to keep the mind aligned with with the process, while also relinquishing control in a way. Read that book, seriously. You'll see what I mean.

Your job will be to help keep her focused, to not spin out of control, to help her breathe through the contractions. There is an awesome move our doula showed my husband, where he put his forearms on my hips and compressed them, thereby fanning them open during contractions. Amazing, really helped keep me comfortable. She can also get in a hot bath or shower. I was in and out of the hot shower a few times during my labour. Oh and btw, put some garbage bags or old sheets down on the floors. You're welcome.

One very simple and KEY nugget you both can think of throughout labour is, with each contraction you are that much closer to meeting your baby! Really helps to keep things in perspective, especially at peak labour, which is transition phase.


Oh boy I'm so excited for you!! You guys'll be great, I know it!

This just reinforces the thought in my mind that asks, "How the hell did we survive long enough before the advent of modern medicine to reach a population of over 7 billion?" You ladies are tough. I could never be a woman. Too much biology involved for me!
