Virtual event

“Mothering during COVID” virtual event is taking place tonight

CLEVELAND – Motherhood is inherently difficult, the pandemic adds, and the past two years have been unlike anything we’ve experienced before.

“I think a lot of people feel really burnt out from all the changes. I think originally we thought it was going to be something that would be temporary and that we could go on with our lives,” said India Robertson with Birth. great communities.

It is a Cleveland nonprofit organization serving black mothers and babies since 2014 to help improve outcomes and the future.

The organization is now helping to tackle “Mothering During COVID,” which is the title of a new virtual event that will take place on Wednesday January 12 from 5 to 7 p.m.

Robertson said it would be a comfortable and safe space to discuss the challenges and complexities of being a mother right now.

“And that goes for making decisions about immunization for you and your family, isolation, workforce changes – like I said, I’m sitting across from my daughter right now – we’ve had a lot of things that are just different as a mom so we wanted to be able to discuss what that is like and also see that the things they face impact other people as well. “

The discussion is organized in conjunction with the ThirdSpace Action Lab and the Cleveland Museum of Art exhibit titled “Picturing Motherhood Now”.
