New Year, Same (sort of) Covid

January 26, 2022
A new year is usually filled with a renewed energy that has us making plans, lists, goals and above all, feeling hopeful. The start of 2021 was brimming with a hopefulness that Covid would die down and things could return to “normal”. The initial wave of Sars-CoV-2 had passed along with the newer strains Alpha and Beta so that should be the end, right? Three waves? Except then came Gamma and Delta and most recently Omicron. Even worse, people are ending up with BOTH the coronavirus and influenza at the same time: FluRona.

A Different Kind of New Year--What If We Just Let Ourselves Be?

January 26, 2022
It’s hard to believe we’re almost at the end of January. But maybe that’s a good thing. The pressure we put on ourselves and each other at this time of the year! What a way to -- maybe not -- start things off! It's an arbitrary transition but it is one whether we like it or not. Calendars, holidays, social expectations, parenting all lean on us and ask us to do things like: reflect, change, amend, clean, better ourselves, connect with others, make commitments, break commitments, put the past to rest, fix the past, be more present, do it now, build a future.

Help save lives, end racial & ethnic maternal health disparities and promote birth equity!

January 16, 2022
Right now, the United States is the most dangerous place to give birth in the developed world, with major racial disparities with Black women losing their lives at 3 to 4 times more than the rate of white women due to maternity-related causes, independent of age, economic background, or education. This is a fact that has not changed for several decades.

Support the Women’s Health Protection Act

January 11, 2022
Many of us had a pit in our stomach as we watched the arguments last month at the U.S. Supreme Court on the fate of Roe v. Wade. Those justices will decide whether millions of people will lose access to abortion and the reproductive care they need. It’s past time for lawmakers to act to protect our reproductive rights!
