Quick Hit: Disaster Preparedness Tips for Women

By Rachel Walden |

As some of you may know, I’m based in Nashville, TN, where we have had significant flood damage over the past several days. This seems like a good time, then, to share some resources about disaster/emergency preparedness.

Some resources specific to women:

  • womenshealth.gov: Disaster or Emergency Preparedness Plan for Women (includes information on breastfeeding during an emergency)
  • National Library of Medicine: Special Populations: Emergency and Disaster Preparedness (includes information for women and on pregnancy, as well as for individuals with disabilities, materials in Spanish, and other resources)
  • Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses: Emergency Preparedness for Women & Infants (round-up of links to relevant CDC and other materials, clinical advisories, and journal articles)
  • CDC: Emergency Planning Tips If You’re Pregnant or Have Young Children
