Covid -19 Activities, Quarantine freedom

Appropriate Quarantine Activities

Finding Positivity and Appropriate Activities During a Pandemic

Here we are! Just like that, it’s already June, and what a strange 2020 we have experienced thus far. The first part of 2020 has felt like an entire year in itself! COVID-19 has brought us many challenges. But challenges can bring positive change. Check out our SAFE Post-Quarantine Activities below.

As COVID-19 has left us with uncertainty and questions about what is next, there are a lot of great things that have, and can come, out of this. Here are some tips to chase away the COVID blues.

These quarantine activities assume measures are taken to follow all CDC guidelines and social distancing when in public.

  1. Go outside! Get some sun! Have a picnic or take a walk around the park! It’s amazing what this can do for your mental health and wellness. Not to mention, being in the sun allows your body to get the Vitamin D it desperately needs to keep you healthy! If there is one thing, we have learned from all of this, it’s that you have to take care of yourself.
  2. Brighten up your home! We often overlook the impact that small features play in our everyday lives. Pro tip: freshen up your home with fresh flowers!
  3. Laugh often! Watch a funny movie or your favorite YouTube videos. Laughter is proven to relieve physical tension and stress.
  4. Swap your favorite smoothie recipe with your friends! Here is our favorite (and healthy!) smoothie recipe. Pro tip: it’s easy to hide spinach in your smoothies! It makes for a healthy, nutritious drink and you can’t even taste the spinach!

RECIPE: Fruit/Spinach Smoothie (Makes for a great breakfast!)

1 cup spinach

½ avocado

½ cut up apple

¼ cup blueberries

1 banana

2 cups of coconut water

2 tsp 100% cocoa powder

Put all the above contents in the blender, and blend! If the consistency is too thick, just add more regular water. If it’s too watery, feel free to add in some Greek yogurt until it’s the consistency that you prefer! We hope you can enjoy some of the quarantine activities and know that we are always here for you!

Pregnant and in School?

It can be incredibly scary finding out you’re pregnant while you’re in school. Maybe you’re wondering what your family and friends will say. Or maybe now is not the time. Maybe this isn’t your first scare. Well, you’re not alone. Do you know that over 2 million college-aged American women (ages 18-24) become pregnant each year?!

If you find yourself one in a sea of two million, we want to let you know we are here for YOU!

At Mid Cities Women’s Clinic, we offer Complimentary Consultation, hospital-grade Pregnancy Tests, STI testing and Ultrasounds.

Why a Consultation?

According to the Contraception Journal, “Counseling must first emphasize early pregnancy options to ensure that a woman is certain about her decision.”

The first step you should take is to book a session with one of our trained patient advocates. During this confidential session, your patient advocate will listen to your situation as you determine what pregnancy options are possibilities for you. She will gain an understanding of your concerns and provide you with thorough unbiased facts on all the options you want to learn more about.

I’ve Already Taken a Pregnancy Test, Why Do I Need Another One?

Because we offer a hospital-grade pregnancy test manufactured by McKesson. This pregnancy test can detect pregnancy as early as 7 to 10 days after conception, with greater than 99% accuracy.

What’s the Need for an Ultrasound?

Did you know that 1 in 4 pregnancies end in miscarriage? Did you also know there is a chance you could have an Ectopic Pregnancy which can be detrimental to a woman’s health? The Contraception Journal states, “before a medical abortion is performed, gestational age should be confirmed by clinical evaluation or ultrasound examination.” An ultrasound can help determine if your body is preparing for a miscarriage or decipher if you have an ectopic pregnancy.

What’s the Cost?

All of our services are free and confidential. It is our goal to create a safe place for you to discuss your options and find the help you need when you need it.

How Do I Get These Services? Call us at 817-577-4387 to schedule your appointment. Or you can book an appointment HERE!
