HIGHLAND, Md. — It's a trying and difficult time for all of us and one women on the frontline of this pandemic is Elizabeth Clayborne.

She has more on her mind than just work these days. She's an emergency room physician and the pressure coming home has been tough for her and her family.

"People are dying, people are scared, people are afraid and it's important to keep with the social distancing until we find a safe way to exit this," she said.

If the pressure of being exposed everyday and then knowing you can possible bring that home to your loved ones wasn't enough to worry about, she's also eight months pregnant.

"It's a scary time to be having a baby," she said.

Uncertainty in the world but there is one thing she is sure about her new baby girl.

"She will have a great story," Clayborne explained. "Will represent strength and beauty in the process."
