MIDWIFERY DURING THE PANDEMIC

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.

KELLY'S FAMILY IN LOCKDOWN

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.
