As of this morning, pregnant people moved to the 'highest risk' health condition category and can book an appointment by going to: https://www.kflaph.ca/en/healthy-living/covid-19-vaccine.aspx
Click on the pregnancy-specific booking links for Kingston and/or Napanee!

In their latest statement, the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologist of Canada (SOGC) "supports the use of all available COVID-19 vaccines approved in Canada in any trimester of pregnancy and during breastfeeding in accordance with regional eligibility." They also state: "Pregnant women who have COVID-19 appear more likely to develop respiratory complications requiring intensive care than women who aren't pregnant. Providing ventilator support in pregnancy is more challenging, and the risks are greater to both mother and child. Pregnant women with COVID-19 are more likely to have a premature birth and caesarean delivery, and their babies are more likely to be admitted to a neonatal unit."

This post from last year has been getting some love this week.

Many of us hoped we wouldn't be back in this place a year later, and here we are.

The same remains true.

Make decisions that work best for your child and family. ❤

Try to roll with the waves of emotion and stress, rather than dwelling on them. 🌊

We are all learning a lot through these uncertain times. 🧠

You are doing your best. And that is enough. 🥰

At the end of week two of emergency remote learning, for many of us the assignments are piling up. It's okay to let them.

It's okay to trust that things will be sorted out eventually. Teachers around the world will be meeting kids where they are when they go back to school.

Your child's emotional well-being is very important right now. Stressed brains can't learn. If remote learning is bringing stress, it's okay to skip it.

There are a lot of lessons to be learned in coping with a global crisis. There's a lot of pressure to figure out how to teach them.

Cuddle those kids. Love them. Read to them. Have fun with them.

You're doing a great job ❤️

Much love to all the caregivers doing their best. ❤️

Hey parents - we see you. You miss your village. You need a break. You are doing your best. #ItsOkayNotToBeOkay
❤ You are tired, but your kids love spending all this extra time with you (even if they don't always show it). They will have warm memories of this time with you.
❤ You are not alone. There are still online groups happening. I know it's not the same, but give it a try.
❤ You can call 613-549-1154 to speak to an RN about local supports or about your mental health. ~Rebecca, RN

Opinion | Our kids are becoming broken — when do we prioritize their well-being?

#BellLetsTalk about a child-centred pandemic response plan.

We must stop removing the buffers kids need to cope with stress.

Kids need socialization with peers.

Kids need connection with responsive adults (teachers & coaches).

We cannot leave this for therapists to "fix" later.

We all have a role.

Be flexible. Be creative. Be kind.

When decisions are harming kids. Say something. Do something.

These are adult problems, and need adult solutions.

Measures to reduce the spread of COVID are having unintended effects on the mental health of children and youth.

All aspects of well being need to be considered in making decisions that impact our youngest community members.

Dr. Tess Clifford, director of the Psychology Clinic at Queen's University, is concerned about the mental health of children during lockdown, and long term.
