The pregnancy experience shifted rapidly during the pandemic, with new and soon-to-be mothers asking questions about delivery, breastfeeding and coronavirus safety measures around newborns. This episode highlights three different perspectives to bring a well-rounded view of what it means to be pregnant or delivering babies during a global pandemic.

Featured guests include Scott and Aliza Leighton, first-time parents in New Jersey who delivered their baby girl in May with a unique pregnancy and birth experience; Karla Riley, a doula in the greater Atlanta area, who operates under the moniker Atlanta Christian Doula and crafts birth experiences catered to mothers and their newborns; and Clark Andelin, an Emory alum and OBGYN in Illinois, who serves rural communities where mothers often travel long distances to receive care.

Student Highlight: Madeleine Nuebel is a senior Human Health major in Emory’s College of Arts and Sciences. Maddie is interested in obstetrics, gynecology, and women’s health.
