When I started reading Mindful Pregnancy (DK, 2020) by Tracy Donegan, there were just a few confirmed cases of COVID-19 in my state of Washington. By the time you are reading this, things are almost unrecognizable. In a world that is humming with anxiety, with no clear end in sight, Donegan’s pregnancy guide is quite timely. It provides comfort to pregnant people, with practical guidance for how to deal with stress.

On top of everything else happening in the world at the moment, it's also allergy season. For some of us, that's a BIG deal. Perhaps a silver lining of the whole "stay at home" orders is that we can avoid some of the dreaded allergy symptoms this time of year. If you're pregnant during allergy season, you probably want to know what kinds of medications are safe to take during pregnancy. Thankfully, there are lots of options!
