Pandemic Baby Bust: Baby bust: US birth rate falls during pandemic

Despite spending more time at home due to the pandemic, the US is in the midst of a baby bust, not a baby boom.

US births have been falling for nearly a decade and 2019 saw the fewest births in 35 years, but the final numbers for 2020 could slip even lower.

An estimated 300,000 fewer babies are expected in 2021, according to a study by Brookings Institution think tank.

Amid extensive school and day care closures, as well as limits on public gatherings, millions of women have been forced to balance supervising and teaching their children with work and other responsibilities.

Surveys revealed that many couples are delaying pregnancies, having sex less often and want fewer children because of the pandemic and its economic costs, according to the Guttmacher Institute.

 

Who else texts their friends when they are at Total Wine to see if they need anything and are you really a friend if you don’t?

Area Restaurants Spring Guide Updated

When I first came up with the bright idea to share seasonal reopenings in Gloucester, I did not expect the list to blow up quite the way it did. It was not originally intended as a full guide to all restaurants but it is getting much closer to that than to its original purpose. I will mostly not be including sub/pizza/coffee/pickup spots UNLESS they are seasonal and expecting to reopen soon. With all those caveats, and with much thanks to FOB Bex Borden for her work on this here’s the updated list as of March 26 2021.

If you’d like to download your own copy, here you go.
