A Word From Us About COVID-19 and Your Family

Verywell editorial team response to coronavirus (COVID-19)


Dear Verywell Family readers,

It is a very uncertain time in many of our lives. Whether you're pregnant (or trying to get pregnant) and feeling stressed, a new parent learning to care for a newborn amidst the chaos, or a more experienced parent now adjusting to a new schedule at home and just trying to make it through each day—we get it and are right here with you.

We know the developing information about coronavirus (COVID-19) can feel overwhelming—especially for parents dealing with the new realities of social distancing while caring for their children.

With more time away from work, school, and regular routines, and less time spent bonding in person with extended family and friends, you may also be feeling anxious, or maybe a little scared. You’re not alone.

Here at Verywell Family, our mission is always to support you through all the stages of pregnancy and parenthood. This challenging pandemic does not change that.

We remain committed to helping you navigate this experience with credible information written and reviewed by family health experts.

Below, our editors compiled the most relevant and useful articles that offer practical advice—to hopefully make you (and your family) feel calmer, not more chaotic.

In these articles, written and reviewed by our team of family health experts, you can learn more about how coronavirus may impact pregnant women and children, how to talk to your kids about what's happening in the world, and plenty of ideas for keeping your kids entertained at home during this time.

In addition, you’ll find more important resources from our other Verywell brands—from answers to the most commonly asked questions about coronavirus to coping from a mental health perspective to the types of foods you may want to stock in your pantry if you can’t get to the grocery store as often as usual.

As you know, everything is changing so quickly, but we promise to keep sharing positive ways to take care of yourself and your loved ones—physically, emotionally, and mentally—during this time. 

If there's anything you'd like to see more of (or less of) from us, we invite you to send those thoughts to Please use “COVID-19 Feedback” as the subject line.

From all of us at Verywell Family, we hope you and your loved ones stay safe, calm, and healthy. 

We're here for you,

The Verywell Family Editorial Team
