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.

Readers tell us they can't find the information they get from our reporting anywhere else, and we're proud to provide this important service for our community. We work hard to produce accurate, timely, impactful journalism without paywalls that keeps our region informed and moving forward.
However, only about .1% of the people who read our stories contribute to our work financially. Our newsroom depends on the generosity of readers like yourself to make our high-quality local journalism possible, and the costs of the resources it takes to produce it have been rising, so each member means a lot to us.
Your MATCHED donation to our nonprofit newsroom helps ensure everyone in Allegheny County can stay up-to-date about decisions and events that affect them. Please make your gift of support now.
