2020 was a year like no other and difficult for all. Joanna Philpot is a mother of three who speaks from honest, first-hand experiences to reflect on navigating pregnancy, and the new-born days, throughout a global pandemic. She covers everything from that first positive test; the announcement of the Covid-19 pandemic; lone antenatal appointments; online support; to those first steps we took out of lockdown to return to ‘normal'. As well as reflecting on the difficulties she and other parents and families faced, she remembers with joy the positives being locked down brought. Joanna sheds light on the unnerving scenario that millions of women faced at this time and provides an in-depth account of being pregnant in a pandemic.
