While the precise mechanics of how COVID-19 is spread through a population are not yet clear, one thing we do know is that pregnant women have slightly compromised immunity.
I had this vision of going to the gym in my final trimester. I thought I'd be striding through the corridors of work, doing everything I'd have normally done. I thought I'd power through, like some kind of determined mothership. Now I'm incarcerated at home.
I have something really big to do, at probably the worst possible time of the outbreak. But then I think of all those women in all sorts of crises throughout history and how amazingly they've done.
