Avoid Parental Burnout in 2020

Also: mail-in sperm kits, Domino Kirke on becoming a doula, and 34 tiny (yet genius) victories.
A roundup of new guidance and stories from NYT Parenting.

Giving birth forced Domino Kirke to confront her relationship with her mother, and with all authority figures. “We birth the way we live our lives,” she wrote in a new essay, explaining why she was inspired to become a doula after working through that trauma. She also shared questions you should be unafraid to ask of a doctor, midwife, doula or anyone else who might be in the room for the “most important moments” of your life.

Also on the site this week, Lauren McCarthy looked into whether mail-in sperm kits are actually effective and Anna Goldfarb asked experts what to say to a friend struggling with infertility. And, if you’re still recovering from hectic holidays, don’t miss our popular guide to avoiding burnout when you have little ones. The key, experts say, is to let go of perfection and build your support system. You can start with our community of readers, who shared creative and hilarious tiny victories all last year — here are 34 of our favorite hacks.

Thanks for reading!
