Wellbeing in the age of COVID-19
For women who have birthed for the first time, they have had to do antenatal care on their own, scans on their own and minimal visitation and support when baby has arrived.
Being mindful of this when supporting breastfeeding mothers could literally be lifesaving.
Being mindful of the need for our own self-care and the many demands that COVID-19 has brought to all our lives is critical. Using stories, tragedy, and humour we investigate how to care for ourselves and others during a pandemic when we often already feel overloaded.
