Bringing a baby into the world can be stressful for any parent at any time, let alone in the middle of a pandemic. 

Besides the obvious health concerns, moms to be can be left wondering: What world am I bringing my baby into?

Pope Francis recently prayed for pregnant women who may have this question. 

Here to talk about her experience is Kerry Weber, executive editor at the Jesuit “America Magazine,” who is expecting a baby girl in July.

She wrote an article for America Magazine titled “The Hope and Uncertainty of Being Pregnant During the Coronavirus Pandemic.” There are already so many fears, and worrying that your baby will be healthy and the delivery will be uneventful, is now among these concerns.

Can you or your baby catch the virus? Can your husband be with you during the delivery?
