Discovering her new role as a mother in front of a little being totally dependent on you, it is perhaps one of the most powerful experiences that can be lived. Wonderful, but not always rosy. Managing crying, fatigue, the aftermath of childbirth, anxiety, the drop in hormones and the period of postpartum vulnerability is not easy. Add to that a pandemic of a virus still unknown eighteen months ago, three lockdowns, a curfew, fear of disease and an array of health restrictions, and there the emotional roller coaster climbs again. a notch.

How to tame your anxieties, break the loneliness and the feeling of isolation frequently experienced by young mothers when you cannot receive help from a mother or a sister if she lives more than 10 kilometers from home? That we are afraid of bringing the virus into the home, which must remain a healthy and safe environment for his baby? How do you combine the desire and the need to see the world, to be helped and surrounded, when you have to submit to health restrictions?

Is this your case?

Did you become a mom during the pandemic?

After the birth, did you have any particular fears or difficulties with your baby related to the health crisis?

Have restrictive measures and barrier gestures reinforced your feeling of isolation?

Or have you on the contrary taken the opportunity to refocus on your cocoon and your new role as parents with your partner, avoiding visits from relatives that we do not always want to receive?

Is this your first child or do you have more (to deal with)?

Have you been able, despite the pandemic, to count on the help of your loved ones, even if it means braving a few restrictions?

Or did your midwife play an even bigger role after your baby was born?
