How the Pandemic Has Shed Light on Parenting a Medically Complex Child

In early 2021, I started seeing news coverage on the impact of the pandemic on mothers. The New York Times published an article titled, “How Society Has Turned Its Back on Mothers: This isn’t just about burnout, it’s about betrayal.” “All Work No Pay,” ran in New York Magazine.

The Daily Skimm dedicated its lead section on a newsletter, “Mother Load,” to dissecting the issue. These are just a sampling of the headlines, and amidst the reports, I kept thinking, this isn’t new for medically complex parents, particularly medically complex mothers; this is normal daily life.

Over a year ago, I wrote a blog post about living with uncertainty around the pandemic and how that idea isn’t foreign for medically complex parents.
