My wife and I are growing increasingly anxious about her giving birth at the end of April, given forecasts of the effect on our healthcare system in the United States, especially in New York.

It's not just about our exposure. Will beds be available if she has complications? Who will watch our children if any of us have symptoms? Will I even be able to be in the room? Will our newborn be safe? So much and more.

@mikegerwitz All good questions. Try not to worry too much. Don't forget that humans have been having babies without hospitals for hundreds of thousands of years so as a species we're quite good at it.
