Prioritizing Mom During a Crisis

During the current climate of this global pandemic, many of us find ourselves anxious, scared, angry or sad. And that’s okay. Here at TCMC we want to walk along beside you as we traverse these uncertain waters together. In our continued pursuit to resource you as a mom, we’ve compiled some tools for you to use at your leisure.

It’s so important to us that you feel cared for in the middle of all that you’re doing to take care of your family. Moms do a lot of looking out for others in their home, and with that in mind, we want to encourage you to make sure you are on the priority list too.

It’s the oxygen mask mentality and if you take care of how you feel in this, you’ll be better equipped to support your family. You’re not alone in this and we hope you find these to be helpful as we all walk an uncertain path in the coming days and weeks.
