The challenges of new parenthood are intense and unique. You want a therapist who specializes in supporting new parents and who "gets" you. There are therapists in your town, but after reading through their listings or websites, you haven't found anyone within driving distance that truly feels like a good fit for what you're looking for.
Signing up for weekly 45-minute sessions is a time commitment in and of itself — and it's one you've decided is worth it. Commuting to and from therapy is something you'd be happy to avoid if possible. You'd rather spend that time resting, cuddling your kiddo, or checking something off your to-do list.
Whether you're pregnant or have a new baby in the house, you're wanting to be selective about how often you come into close contact with others who may be carrying the virus. With in-person therapy often being a close contact activity (long periods of time with another person in a small space), you may prefer to meet virtually for your own health or the health of your family.
