Virtual Support: COVID Resources Curated By HATCH.

We know that pregnancy can be confusing and unsettling under normal circumstances, let alone now during all this uncertainty with COVID-19. With that in mind, we wanted to build out a resource page for all of you—a sort of all-access guide to the experts and services you need for whatever stage of pregnancy you’re in: whether it be before, during or after. Community is more important than ever now—we’re here to support and guide you through it all.

Not seeing a resource you’re looking for? Have a question about COVID-19? Email us at community@hatchcollection.com  and we’ll try our best to help. We’ll also be updating this page as we locate additional resources and answer more of your questions.
