I had my daughter in Brisbane on the 20 June 2020, first child, first grandchild for my parents. My Kiwi mum literally met her for the first time two weeks ago. My kiwi Dad retires this week and heads over here next week and my Kiwi brother gets here on the 19 June. I felt so isolated and so much grief this past year. I had so much fear and so little support during my pregnancy, birth and after the birth and had so much trouble breast feeding I ended up giving up. I never thought when I had a baby that my family couldn’t be involved. I feel and acknowledge your grief Amy and I hope you can see your family soon. I think Australia has been too slow with our vaccine program, my family in the UK are already vaccinated.
