In some careers, social distancing isn’t an option. So, one business owner in Southern California has made some lifestyle sacrifices to continue doing what she has been doing for two decades.

“I am trained as a postpartum doula,” Sullivan said. “And I’m also trained as a baby nurse, which is now called a newborn care specialist.”
