Bonus: How to Stay Calm in the Chaos of COVID-19
July 9, 2020
In part nine of their “Momming During Coronavirus” bonus series, Shanna and Laura interview meditation expert, IVF warrior and mother of five Josephine Atluri, who shares her wisdom about how to find your calm in the swirl of coronavirus chaos. She explains the importance of self-care and taking time to breathe, she gives tips on how to stay centered while parenting during the pandemic, and she offers advice to people whose fertility journeys have been delayed or derailed by COVID-19. Also, Shanna reports on her experience getting a COVID test, and Laura talks about recently expanding her quarantine bubble. They also share several BFPs that have arisen amidst the chaos of the last few weeks. It’s been 16 weeks since the coronavirus pandemic has shut down schools, workplaces and all non-essential businesses in Los Angeles, where Shanna and Laura live.
