Star host Kelly Ripa had nothing but sweet words for midwives who are on the front line keeping mothers and their children safe amid the novel Coronavirus epidemic.


On the "Live with Kelly and Ryan" show, Kelly Ripa and her co-host, Ryan Seacrest, saw the need to praise health workers for their heroic deeds while the fight against COVID-19 is still on.

In honor of midwives, the duo brought on Jennifer Shoback, a midwife from Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania, to talk about her experience so far and how health workers have been coping.

Ripa started by informing Shoback and fans that she once dreamed of being a midwife or a doula. The "All My Children" star said:

"I just find the whole childbirth experience to be so incredible, miraculous and exhilarating…"



Referring to midwifery as "phenomenal," the mom-of-three tenet on to ask Shoback about how her job has been with the ongoing viral infection. Jennifer took it from there and informed the hosts that it was "scary."

However, the prolonged lockdown might gradually be taking its toll on the Hollywood star.

She made it known that midwives are always worried about the expectant mothers coming to the hospital at this vulnerable time. She talked about the fear of being under-equipped with items like face masks. Shoback added that they were always in a dilemma of keeping pregnant moms out of the hospital and seeing to their health needs.



Once on her Instagram page, the "Hope & Faith" actress took out time to dish out a thoughtful list of COVID-19 dos and don'ts to the delight of fans. The socialite shared an image that included a long list of advice for her fans and the general public.


Kelly's write up included words that could help calm fans' nerves as she opined that it was okay to be worried about the number of cases that have been discovered. Ripa also certified that a little bit of paranoia was allowed, as anyone could be worried that they were exhibiting signs.



Just like other stars, the media mogul and her star hubby, Mark Consuelos, continue to adhere to the safety rules as they stay indoors and keep up a healthy lifestyle.

However, the prolonged lockdown might gradually be taking its toll on the Hollywood star as she once broke down while talking about not being able to have physical contact with her loved ones.

Ripa opened up about missing her parents and having to stay away from them to reduce the risk of the senior citizens contracting the not-so-subtle virus.

The 49-year-old added that she and two of her kids haven't been talking, and it's difficult for her to handle. Kelly also mused about having to cancel plans and events due to the epidemic.
