I wanted to offer up some beautiful words of encouragement to all the mamas out there who are about to welcome their little ones in to the world over the coming weeks and months as this pandemic persists. These words come from Emma @a_mothers_tales who gave birth to this gorgeous little squish, Harry, just a few days ago…
(Emma’s birth story will also be featured on the blog this week, so keep you’re eyes peeled).
I’ll let her do the talking…
EMMA | “I just want to pop this on for anyone who may be feeling a little anxious as they prepare to welcome their little bundles into the world right now!
I, for one, had been so worried about going to the hospital! Anxious for my baby’s safety, and for my family’s safety. Worried that I’d feel completely disconnected from the midwives, and of course worried about the possibility of going it alone!
But honestly, the reality was so different!!
In fact I’d go as far as to say… Being in the hospital was one of the most normal experiences I’ve had during these very abnormal times. It was so lovely just being able to share some connection with others again – sharing laughs, and speaking to other mama’s on the ward… It almost felt… normal!
Once you get past the masks (which you do very quickly because everyone’s wearing them!) there really isn’t much of a difference! All the staff were AMAZING, they could not have been lovelier, and their spirits were still so high despite everything! Every single one of them put my mind at ease from the moment I stepped through the door.
And now.. As an extra special bonus, despite everything that’s going on in the world right now, us lucky few get to come home and enjoy our little miracles.
What’s more… We are allowed to live in our own little self contained bubble. We can soak up every single part of these precious little babies and enjoy our fourth trimester, without any interruptions from the outside world! ❤️ Pretty special eh?
So if any of you are currently awaiting the arrival of your baby, please try not to stress!
Yes it’s a little different, but different isn’t always bad. And when you look for the good, there’s usually always some there to be had ❤️”
