December 15, 2019, was one of the happiest days of my life. After longing for a baby for years, I finally found out I was carrying a life inside of me. As a second-year hematology-oncology fellow in a busy fellowship program, I knew that pregnancy would come with its own set of challenges, which I was prepared to face. Many of my predecessors had gone through this before, and I did not think the experience would be any different for me. What I was absolutely not prepared for was facing a pandemic while living and training in one of the most populous cities in the world during the time I was carrying my first child.
