Taking care of our newborn baby during CORONA is challenging. We should take extra care of him as he has very low immunity. So he shouldn't be taken out unnecessarily. We shouldn't allow outsiders to touch out baby. And we shouldn't give him cold milk. Otherwise he can catch cold. Baby should be kept warm.

It was really challenging to progress with my pregnancy during covid 19 days.Welcoming my new born was even more challenging.Staying at my in laws place ,my parents did not want any kind of risks to creep in.So they avoided their physical visits.That was tough.But after delivery while I was in the hospital ,I prayed that none of my relatives should visit me and my newborn,not because I was selfish but because I did not want anything undesired to happen.After getting back home my parents came home only on the 28th day to see us.That was quite emotional but yes the situation was demanding.But as every working mom would love to spend more time with her newborn,even I enjoyed the whole time with my baby undisturbed.After all these challenges are nothing when compared to welcoming a new born into this world.Simply love the complete bonding I was gifted with my baby during covid 19 days.

The joy of being a mother is one of the greatest feelings in a woman's life. Everything changed since the strip showed two lines. Everything I used to love before suddenly don't spark any joy anymore except the excitement of the baby. I conceived in September, 2019. By 7 months I was all set to welcome my baby, letting go of all my bad habits, making the best version of myself and then there comes 'The Covid', followed by my dad's stroke resulting in his death. Well then I wasn't the best version of myself again with constant fear of Covid and depression. Every check up to the doctor felt like a battle making myself extra careful and conscious. I delivered the baby in May. Life has been even more tough since then. Everything in the house needed to be sanitized everyday especially when there is a new born. We had to even stop our maid from coming, so I had to take care of the baby, take care of the family, cook, clean and repeat. Even for vaccines, when we need to take our baby, it feels like stepping into a battle field the moment we step outside the house, trust noone, scared to meet people as there is constant doubt of what if they are infected.

Covid has deeply impacted the way I thought pregnancy and Motherhood can be but life goes on anyway.
