Bringing home a newborn is challenging, and that's why so many new parents lean on family and friends to help them adjust. But this support is near impossible during a pandemic, without taking risks. In this episode, Pittsburgh North Side resident Bethany McLaughlin shares about her time so far with newborn Cleo and the toll it's taking on Cleo’s grandparents.

This podcast was produced by Andy Kubis and edited by Mila Sanina and Halle Stockton.
