Mamas in Lockdown is an emotional and inspiring collection of personal stories from 77 parents who were pregnant or gave birth during lockdown.
Covid-19 had a huge impact on the people of Aotearoa New Zealand, especially those having a baby. From giving birth without the support of a partner or chosen midwife, to having a home birth instead of a hospital birth – the changes were unexpected and disconcerting for many. While supporting families with breastfeeding during the lockdown period, it became very clear that parents needed to talk about what had happened.
Many hours were spent listening to parents, and Denise Ives knew how therapeutic writing their stories had been for a couple of these mothers. She put out a call to see if others wanted to write their story to share in a book – and was inundated.
Parents need to tell their stories, they deserve to be heard.
